Get rid of unions and the teacher tenure system. That would save a HUGE amount of money while getting rid of the deadwood. But I am in favor of charter schools for quality education rather than one big warehouse.

I am in in favor with flooding the public schools with $1000 dollar bills...remove all tax write offs for private schools and throw that into the public pot to make our kids better...

We can no longer afford to finance redundant and outdated facilities. We must cut costs and standardize educational expectations within the district. The current neighborhood school model is a system where one school is chronically a month or more behind the others in math curriculum and another lags behind in literacy. One school only teaches French, another Spanish and yet another Chinese. Maintaining multiple schools means maintaining multiple libraries, food services, health offices, custodial staff.....

I really don't know what in the hell you are talking about Mike. If you can buy a better service for less money, why wouldn't you do it? And Halo guy, since Brattleboro is more economically challenged than most, houw is it that you justify more teachers per student?
