I do disagree that Peter said that this doesn't appear to be a hot topic.

It has been for quite some time (especially amongst the parents) and this is why the Holy Cross was granted permission to open its doors even though it wasn't in an ideal location. Holy Cross is filled to capacity and cannot accommodate all of the applicants. The RC school has been filled to capacity for years. Now it seems that the SP High School may not be able to accommodate all of the kids that have applied for next year.

This is a crisis situation. And the figures in the first post don't even include the number of immigrant/illegal kids.
