"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.

Does this mean that Sherry and Eberhart have had a falling out?Maybe we finally have a chance to overcome the previous board majority and have some logical decisions be made.
If there was a falling out, which I doubt, who would be making the logical decisions, Whitmarsh or Eberhart?
My guess is that this is the beginning of Sherry laying the groundwork for her reelection campaign.I remember two election cycles ago, Sherry and Gary promising to be open with communication with the public. They then both went into hiding for two years. Now they both suddenly become active on the blogs again.Can you say, "its time to get reelected"?
Oh please. We asked for communication and they try and then you find reasons to say it is a problem. These people have families, full time jobs, kids in school and had the courage to run for our BOE. We voted them in and then they have to take comments from people like you? Did you run for BOE? Nooo, you are the armchair critic. Our State is in a fiscal mess, thus creating a nightmare for education. I for one appreciate the blogs for a source of information. Sad that people like you see it as a place to make assumptions, criticism and put people down.
We have elementary schools with 700 plus. If we divide the total number of elementary children by 700, how many elementary schools could we have ? Do the math from the 29 we now have. I don't know the exact numbers but lets say we have roughly 16,000 elementary students. At a 700 per school target we would only need 23 schools instead of the current 29. Now, yes, I know that not all have that current capacity, but we have to start thinking economies of scale.
sorry, wrong thread
