Isn't it enough that the schools in the beach smother the citizens like a wet blanket, requiring more and more money to keep producing less than average. How's this, the lowest scores in the state! Westmoreland County schools far surpassed the beach in SAT scores, and the beach was the only local school to fall in points in the entire region. Now what, do we continue to put money into an independent school system that produces less than average? Or is this simply an ice-cream stand with no refrigeration? It is time for the tax payers who have been held hostage by the few in the beach who feel the joining Westmoreland Co. is wrong stand up and demand the school be joined with Westmoreland Co. not so much for the savings in Town money but for the future of the kids here. This happens all over the Country, Independent school systems join larger systems and scores come up, taxes are spent in infrastructure and so on.
