Over 100 township residents attended the Act 34 meeting for the new Harriton high school to hear the district's presentation and to present their views and listen to those of their fellow citizens. Of 36 citizens that spoke, 27 offered strong objections to the project based on its size and cost. The remaining 9 citizens presented reasons why Harriton high school should be replaced, although none discussed specific reasons for the size being 2.5 times greater than the space allocations recommended by the PA Dept. of Ed. or for the cost being twice the 2005 national mean and 25% higher than the 10% most expensive high schools in the nation.
