Benton Harbor school board approves consolidation plan

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. -- Benton Harbor students are getting shuffled around next fall!

The school board approved a consolidation plan on Tuesday night to close Boynton, Montessori, Sorters, and Stump schools.

The district plans to re-open Hull Middle School.

The idea was to cut operation costs.

We talked to one Benton Harbor parent on Wednesday who said she is tired of moving her kids around!

"Consistency, I don't see it. And our kids need that, because if we don't have consistency, then how can our kids move ahead?" said Kerry Krause, a Benton Harbor parent.

The superintendent said that the consolidation will help Benton Harbor climb out of a $16 million deficiet.
