When a few experts get together and develop a possible plan for a new unified school district, things might move beyond the talking stage.
The plan would include an organizational chart so we can all see what kind and number of positions are needed. A proposed budget would be included with any savings identified as compared to the current two-district situation. With this information in hand, an informed, reasoned decision could be made by the community. Without such information, anyone’s guess is just as good as another’s, and that’s exactly where we’re at now.
And, if a plan is to be developed, one underlying assumption should direct the effort: Schools exist for the education of children, not for the employment of adults.
