The legislative post audit has just concluded a study showing what mandatory state wide school consolidation would save the state, the $400 million hole they put us in is still there. The scenerio 2 is the one I find interesting, it makes every school have at least 1600 students. Since 5 counties in our state have about 50% of the population this should come as no surprise to me. They obviously did not attend nor have they been around small schools. I think the benefits of an education at a small school far outweigh the limited participation you have in a large school. I know in our community I am preaching to the choir, as we value small schools. At least they kept the post audit branch busy so they weren't bothering a school with their trivial quest for useless information.
