We want all the benefits of being the boss, but want to contract out our shools, jack the tax payers and blame the contractors. Afro American engineering at its finest.

Small high schools are cute and all, but unless they have Kaufman or HR Block behind them, they will not be able to afford to offer much with such low enrollments. The population within the district boundaries has dropped 30K in the past few years. They are going to be adding a couple more high schools in the next couple of years. We don't need anymore.
