Why not save former TJ building?

HOUSTON — I was in Port Arthur for my high school reunion on the 25th. We learned that our old high school, Thomas Jefferson, now Edison Middle School, will be torn down. I drove by and it still looks good. That school was made of good materials and had character. That is more than I can say about the new DeQueen school, where I started school. That building is just that, a building. Looks like a big warehouse. And Woodrow Wilson looks like a statue that has lost its arms. What a shame.

Could someone explain why they are tearing it down and not just trying to save it?
