Caddo Parish School Board member Barry Rachal talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty on the board's controversial 8-4 vote to merge Shreveport's Fair Park and BTW high schools.

Rachal explains why, despite his "no" vote, he is backing the merger of two of the city's oldest schools, when the move will take place and how the merger of the two student bodies will make a better school for the city, faculty and students.
