Buono tours deteriorated Trenton school



TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Democrat Barbara Buono says Trenton’s high school is in such poor condition that it should be closed immediately for emergency repairs and its 1,900 students temporarily schooled elsewhere.

Buono toured the 80-yer-old school in New Jersey’s capital city on Thursday at the invitation of student leaders.

Afterward, she described conditions as worse than some prisons.

Gov. Chris Christie declined a similar invitation.

The school has a leaky roof, crumbling ceilings and mold-infested walls.

The governor says the Schools Development Authority under his administration has jurisdiction.

But the SDA says emergency repairs are the school district’s responsibility.

The district is suing the state.
