If school administrators do not have the ability nor the backbone to begin to reduce costs then all the dire recommendations made by The Old One will come about and not by choice. There is a limit as to the amount of taxation that the responsible citizens who do pay taxes will put up with. I believe we are there and I believe those controlling the taxes are too dumb to realize it. This is true throughout the country, mainly in Washington DC. The big-spenders and bureaucratic empire builders, from local schools to DC, must be controlled or eliminated. Enough is enough. It's time for common sense and belt tightening in all tax supported entities. If Washington policies are causing our schools budget problems locally and are not locally supported, why are school administrators not banding together and marching on DC for repeal of the offensive rules. And if the costs are not attributable to Washington policies then they must be under local control, meaning the school board, and the superintendent as the professional making recommendations to the board. A track record is a hard thing to dispute. On the list of plus and minus a track record of big spending would have to fall in the minus column without some serious evidence of coercion. The argument is not with Dr. Hunkapiller, but rather with the members of the school board who hired him. There are many things known by the board that we are not privileged to know. Perhaps the Dr. was indeed the outstanding choice among the applicants. Perhaps there were not many applicants. Perhaps the Dr. will be a frugal and outstanding superintendent. Again I say, if you disagree with the choice, blame the people who did the hiring.
