Bethune Elementary is in Hollygrove, NOT Garden District[edit]

Even though this article:

says "At the Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary School, tucked into the city's residential Garden District, the hallways smelled of fresh paint, and new books were on display on the library shelves. In fact, everything was new in the school, principal Mary Hynes-Smith told students and parents assembled on the playground outside. "This is going to be a wonderful, wonderful school year," Hynes-Smith said. "We're going to make these kids the smartest kids in the world.""

In fact it is in Hollygrove, which is a distance away:

  • Schleifstein, Mark. "Reaction cool to planned school shuffle." The Times-Picayune. Monday May 2, 2005. "A prime example is the proposed closure of Mary M. Bethune Elementary in Hollygrove, which received a positive two-star rating from the state, with a school performance score of 101 on a scale of 250. When the accountability system was introduced in 1999, the goal was to get all schools to score 100 by the year 2009."
