No savings in NM-Lunenburg merger idea

Full story: Nashoba Publishing
The merger between the North Middlesex Regional and Lunenburg school districts would save taxpayers no money for the operation of the schools, but would allow them to further stretch the dollars that they have, according to the two superintendents. Full Story

Okay residents of Townsend, Pepperell, and Ashby each town would have had to pay MORE than they already do if the merger was already in place. Yet the NMRSC members still continue to entertain this. Marshall still continues to push it and if you read the article you would see why. In the article it states that NM would no longer be able to share administrators and teachers as they do now. This means Marshall would get a big fat check as reward for screwing up the district and then leaving. It is not worth the increased spending to get rid or her. Also none of the member towns can afford the increased assessment plus we get two additional schools that need repairs to go along with the high school. We the taxpayers and parents need to make sure we strike this deal down, attend town meeting and vote against it we cannot afford it and we cannot let MM get rich on this and leave us with a huge debt.
