  •  The schools were built with (0+ / 0-)

    money from bonds. Voters actually voted for it thinking their kids would get a better education because they were getting a new school. After the older schools were shut down, the communities where schools closed deteriorated and property values sunk. Their kids were bused instead of walking to school and the classroom size increased. The school board put forth another school bond last year and the voters voted it down soundly. The school board and superintendent are out of touch because they are trying to pass another bond. It's not going to happen. I believe they could pass one if they used the money to upgrade existing schools and fund more technology initiatives.

    -if there is hope it lies in the proles.
