I taught in the south for a bit. I believe our schools to be equivalent, some even better. Anyhow…They have county wide school districts. This should be done here. Variations in the size of student populations wouldn't require small districts to build whole wings, they simply redraw the area a particular school serves and bus students to schools that have room. Only one superintendent, one Asst. Super, smaller transportation supervising teams, movement of teachers and students as needed, one contract dispute instead of fifty. There are many other reasons for a county wide school district, it makes too much sense, saves money, shares resources. So none of that merging talk, just one big district.
