Like cutting the number of school districts in this relatively small state to a manageable number. Say, to 75—one for each county.
Yeah, that might work in some places, but not all. I'm not particularly keen because that would probably close a number of schools causing many students to endure long bus rides. I did that for 4 years, 2 hours a day. I consider that cruel and unusual punishment to the children. Adding more and longer bus runs also means a big gas bill. At the gas prices today, that's going to eat up a school's budget really fast.
What ever the Department of Education and the school districts are doing now, it isn't working. Some one really needs to take an in depth look at were the Education money is being spent from the administration of the Department of Education to the individual school districts.
