FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The uncertain future of Paul Harding High School is stirring up debate from parents, students, and administrators.

Fort Wayne's United Pastor's Group invited area churches to hear about the latest information from the school system, most notably the possible closure of Harding.

The leaders would then like ministers to spread the word to their congregations as a way for people to become educated on what the next step will be.

Rev. Michael Latham says, “We really don't want anyone coming into our community, or any persons or groups, and take on a challenge that they can't say to the community we will be to conquer this goal. We'd rather have folks that will give us a personal guarantee that our kids will be properly educated and there's no loop hole for them to fall into."

Latham said the pastor's intend to take the community input and present it to the school board and state education leaders.
