In the matter of Concordia High School failing, sure blame can be assigned all around. The point is Concordia High should have stayed in its Ada Boulevard location together with Concordia University. They weren't kicked out, they just left. Ada Boulevard in the northeast section of Edmonton is a nice area, but ithe high school staff & everyone hadn't decided to go off unnecessarily to SE Edmonton & their new facility, the university board & its members could have coordinated with the high school board & come up with development plans II adjust IV the lower enrolment. Plus, with only one building, the high school might have survived even in a reduced capacity until it could be reconfigured & once again be made stronger under the combined leadership of strong folks on both boards.
