New Haven Public Schools administrators, civic leaders, and officials gathered Thursday at the Southern Connecticut State University campus to break ground on Barack H. Obama Magnet University School.

New Haven Superintendent Carol Birks said the district was continuing the former president’s “commitment to urban education.”

Officials say SCSU students will get a chance to gain in-class experience at the new school.

The $45 million school is scheduled to open in fall 2019.

It is thought to be the first school in New England named in honor of President Obama.

I don’t know about all of you but I find these occasional positive stories about our greatest president to be therapeutic. 

It reminds me that not so very long ago we were a great nation led by an amazing president. 

It also gives me hope that in the near future we will have that again.

    “In-class experience?”
    Isn’t that what school is?
    Odd choice of wording.

      “SCSU students” is a reference to students attending Southern Connecticut State University who, according to the article, will be getting experience teaching real classes at BHOMUS. Since BHOMUS will be a “Magnet” school, the SCSU students will, I expect, will be getting really valuable in-class (as opposed to pretend classes with fellow SCSU students) teaching experience.
