Yeah, we would still be in the horse and buggy era in your premise. Debt in it's self is not a bad thing, poorly managed debt is another. How would anyone buy a house if they were to pay cash only, how would most of America buy a car, do you have any idea of the jobs that would be lost?Find a subdivision you can afford to live in and move to whatever school district you want. If you are not in a place in life that you can pack up and leave then please reflect. Pay all your bills on time, have no credit card debt, pay cash for everything, pay your house off in 10 years otherwise live like money is burning a hole in your wallet, paycheck to paycheck, one week from the gutter and then write bad stuff about someone's neighborhood/school district that they chose to live in. Get right with that pocket book or it will bring on you a patch of destruction and misery.
Anyway, back on the topic of Superintendent for VV, hopefully they will go beyond their inner circle and look at a lot of candidates. Not that it has anything to do with scholastics, beside Quiz Bowl and such, but VV will be a 5A school next two year cycle starting in 2014.
