arrowre: Budget tightrope


Instead of increasing class size, reducing instructional staff and quality of education, why not consolidate under three or four county school districts like the majority of other states. There are 28 school districts in Oakland County. Which means 28 school boards, superintendents, deputy superintendents, athletic director, school bus garages, administration offices and list goes on. Let's not forget about negotiating contracts with multiple teacher unions. Create four districts such as a, Northwest, Northeast, Southwest and Southeast district serving those schools. The state of Michigan has over 860 school districts (of overhead) with a total state population of 9.8 million residents. Whereas, a state such as Florida has only 67 school districts with a total state population of 19.3 million. Just a thought!
