Hooksett parents want to end school pact with city
Hooksett and Manchester recently reached an agreement that will terminate the contract between the two districts in 2014 instead of 2018. The agreement will settle Hooksett’s breach of service claim against Manchester and Manchester’s injunction against Hooksett.
While Korkosz acknowledged that some Hooksett parents still want to send their children to Manchester, she said she believes the majority wants to leave.
For many parents of Hooksett children, the agreement between the two districts can’t end soon enough, according to conversations with parents.
“No toilet paper in the bathroom, kids sitting on the floor because of large classes, and there are lots of other problems. I don’t have a good word to say about (Manchester),” Arrigo said.
One of the main reasons Dionne said she doesn’t want another child in Manchester schools is the violence that occurs there.
Still, Korkosz and many parents acknowledged that due to the 120-year relationship between the two districts, many parents in Hooksett continue to want to send their children to Manchester schools.
