Re: sharing of school superintendents:
To form a judgment of the feasibility of sharing a school superintendent by the Tri-Lakes, or of any other consolidated district, it seems to me that knowledge of the job is basic. How about starting with the numbers of students involved, with the numbers and levels of schools, with the numbers and tasks of not - yes, not - teachers employed in each village, with the numbers and job descriptions of the superintendents' subordinates?
Maybe the task is too big. Maybe there is plenty of room for cost reductions, not only of superintendents (and their administrative support) but of SUBORDINATES.
Who better to make such evaluations and conclusions than the owners of this enterprise - the taxpayers?
It has been said that education is too important to be left in the hands of experts.
