(HOUSTON) — The wrecking ball came for Phyllis Wheatley High School over the weekend, and many in Houston’s Fifth Ward are not happy about it.

Ida Powell graduated from Wheatley and tells our news partner, KHOU 11, that there is no reason for the building to be demolished.


The building has stood through segregation, hurricanes and declining enrollment.

HISD could not be reached for comment.
