Petition to Preserve Historic School that MLK Attended | WABE 90.1 FM

Residents are trying to preserve an Atlanta school Martin Luther King Jr. once attended.

As of Monday evening, more than 300 people have signed a petition to keep and renovate David T. Howard School in the city’s Old Fourth Ward neighborhood.

Atlanta school parent Priscilla Borders started the petition, urging the Atlanta Board of Education to use the historic school to solve overcrowding issues — and not to demolish it.

“Because of the historical nature of the building, we want that to stay intact,” Borders says. “The fact that Dr. King’s house is down the street and Dr. King attended that school as an elementary student. So it’s something that, you know, comes full circle with the historic district.”
