For sale: Fayetteville High UPDATE

Posted By on Thu, May 29, 2008 at 3:29 PM

The Fayetteville High School controversy is expected to climax tonight at a School Board meeting. The Iconoclast predicts the board will sell the school to the University of Arkansas for less than its appraised value.

Congratulations UA students. Your tuition is about to buy you a fine high school.

UPDATE: Here's news coverage of the meeting.
