This is why Oklahoma has one of the worst educational systems in the nation. There are way too many districts with too few children to justify keeping them open. There is no money for materials, programs or teachers. We keep cutting programs and lose good teachers to other states, but there is always money for football and administrators. We need to consolidate school districts and fund our educational system. Come on Oklahoma-let's get out of the dark age.

I agree this is a bad idea. Not only do you keep a school open that has no money for educational materials and cannot give their students the same opportunities that other schools offer, but the school will (and currently does) lose students frequently into neighboring larger schools, which are then stressed with the burden of supplying education to kids that they are receiving no funding for. Forget the "loyalty" to your tiny school and do what is best for the district's kids@

I disagree. I have 3 children in Lost City School district. Not only are we currently gaining children in our school system, we also have parents who were waiting to see what happened with the vote before they make a decision about sending their children here. Small schools make a big difference in a childs education. We have smaller classrooms which means our children get more individual help from their teachers. I have had my children in a large school district and nothing compares to the environment they are in now. Unless you have had your child in a smaller school setting you can't really comment on what is a better educational environment. Our school has been here 106 years. Our community is held together by our school. We consider ourselves one big family and we want to stay that way.

I disagree.
I am a student from Lost City School.
I wish for the school the best this year, I know the money is lost but you know we can get that back when we get more grants.
I really could care less what you have to say about the school.
You don't go there and who cares.
To me I think Hulbert is crap and they don't deserve Lost City kids.
I think Lost City derseves more than Hulbert ever would.
You mite disagree but really I could care less.
Accept it or deny I really don't care.
