They need Challenges for Change to fail to get consolidation of SUs and
schools to work. Its another scam, they will use the failure to justify
consolidation. they should learn just to be honest and say -
look folks - too many schools - not enough students - run by too many
SUs -

Wake up people - local schoolboards can do the same thing as the SU

Give back local control to the people they did a great job and not for a paycheck
but because they care

School choice should be available for all students. We should not be held hostage by these unions!

Glad to see these school supporting an educationally responsible budget as opposed to a fiscally responsible one. Cuts are unacceptable, Now lets hope the towns support the budgets.

I TOTALLY AGREE with ALL of those who believe in school-choice for the better of their children! Unionized schools do NOT work for anyone but those contracted with the Unions!
Isn't there anyone who cares about the education of the kids over the job security, wages & benefits of those hired to teach (who cannot)?
