Los Angeles, Aug 25 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The Los Angeles Unified School District has planned to open the $578 million School that will house more than 4,000 students. The school, which is billed to start next month, will be called the Robert F. Kennedy Community School and it will be located at the previous site of the Ambassador Hotel where Robert was gunned down some forty-two years back.

The project is part of the so-called Taj Mahal schools that are being built across the United States. The Taj Mahal schools are characterized by their high cost of setup. Each of schools cost more than $100 million to put up and they have ultra modern facilities with excellent amenities.

But the schools do not only receive praise from onlookers, as they have their share of critics too. They also receive doses of criticism because locals claim that the quality of teaching should be enhanced before the fanciful buildings. And with the fact that the LA educational system is struggling to deal with a $640 million budget deficit, it is only natural that the project has so many critics.
