I guess some of you read the article in the Sunday Inquirer. Any thoughts? I wonder how Philly figures into the plan.

I've heard that consolidating the school districts will eventually cost more then keeping the districts the way they are now. I doubt this will have any bearing on the Philly School District. $206,000 just to study this? How long would it take to recoup that cost?

This is a really interesting article. I had read it in Sunday's paper and was going to post on the general PA forum. I've heard bad things from people that moved from areas with huge districts and in a purely NIMBY stand, it doesn't sound good to me. Hope you don't mind if I start another thread over in the general forum.

Oh, of course not - I thought I was in the general forum (dummy that I am). I'm very interested in what folks have to say about it.
