  • Merger?! Many Classrooms are already at capacity. Most have between 30-40 students. These kids cannot learn in this type of setting. It's just not fair, and this is just setting them up
    for failure. And how can the teachers even keep up. Frustrating

  • Val

    Don't sheer demographics play a role in school mergers? The baby boom generation required lots of schools. Cohorts since have been smaller.

  • Val.

    According to some school districts. I just don't understand how the decision makers chose not to put Childrens education/futures a priority
