To the Editor,
Re: School board’s bad decision will lead to more bad decisions, Letters, May 5.
I think the school board needs to rethink the decision to reopen Cedar school as a high school as a huge amount of our taxpayers’ money has already been spent tearing it apart to make it into a much-needed elementary school. Ask all of the kids if they want to go back to that school; you may be surprised at the answers you get. But then maybe that is why the school board is not asking.
Other schools will lose much-needed dollars for improvements, the maintenance jobs lost will only cost us more down the road when equipment is not maintained, bus routes will be cut, the list goes on. This decision is not based on the best interests of the entire community but on a few people who only care about what they want for their community. I shudder to think of the damage the school board will do before the next election. This is the problem when one-issue candidates get elected.
