I keep hearing the high schools are at half strength or less, meaning they are severely underused, so it only stands to reason this school district needs to shrink. As far as I'm concerned, the district will have to close one or more of the brand-new schools eventually, and that means a sooner eventually than a later eventually. So why not just cut spending like men, and re-arrange these schools, and stop pretending that choosing a new figurehead like Durant is going to make a difference? The school system can't stop people from leaving Toledo and Lucas County, and they're going to keep doing that due to economic inertia. The district must adapt therefore to the loss of population.
I'm voting no on this ridiculous tax-and-spend paradigm. Fiscal rectitude is the only rational reality now.
