The half-assed compromise worked out by a divided Board of Education strikes me as worse than doing nothing, though I hope I’m wrong. Why should we pay an extra $200,000 a year so that two bus runs can take kids to school? If first periods are to become little more than study halls, why does anyone need to go in? And if there are going to be real classes right off the bat, then it’s inherently unfair to those who have to take them while others get to sleep in.
The details are everthing, of course, and we don’t know much about them.
By the way, as an aside, the school board should do a much better job of posting information on the town’s website. All of this stuff should be there in great detail so that geeky taxpayers like me can read it.
