Supporters of two Innovation School proposals took their case to the New Bedford School Committee Monday.

About 30 parents and members of United Interfaith Action were in attendance to further the cause of the Esperanza Bi-Lingual and Renaissance Arts schools, which would be located at the Roosevelt Middle and Gomes Elementary Schools, respectively. Sandra Cunha works at New Bedford High with Spanish-language speakers, and says the Esperanza school would provide a life-changing opportunity for its students.

Roosevelt teacher and Innovation School opponent Chuck Lapre feels the sharing of space will be a detriment to all students.
