  • Ron:

    Concerning your CCD blog relating to the consolidation of smaller districts being assimilated into larger school districts, I have a few observations.

    As you know, big is not always better. However, everything seems to be moving in that direction. From the Federal government's infringement upon state's rights, to larger school districts arbitrarily imposing their self-perceived superiority over smaller districts.

    The emphasis on size and the obsession to create bigger and better usually has the opposite effect of creating a cumbersome organization that is unresponsive to the real needs of a community.

    I'll take the smaller, personal touch to the stodginess of an impersonal over-sized, self-consumed educational bureaucracy of uninvolved "professionals," who are usually more interested in the growth of their organization as well as the maintenance of their power and influence than the personal development of the minds and hearts of our young people. Wherein, by the way, lies our nation's future.
