Iowa Defense Alliance: Consolidation: cheaper, but is it better?
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance
The Des Moines Register had an article yesterday about Iowa Senator
Matt McCoy's push for school consolidation in districts with less than
750 students. This is yet another lazy attempt from the Democrats at
the Iowa statehouse to fix a problem by making across the board
decisions. Do they even know which school districts are in this
demographic? Are some of those schools over-performing? Are some of
those schools not in the red? Are you punishing districts that are
doing almost everything right but just so happen to fall under 750
students? Who cares, right? That's the Democrat way. If you don't
know what is best for you, the government does.
