Sorry, folk, but I'm really fuming. At $15 MILLION dollars per school, GCCS wants to referendum the election. They only want NINE new schools. Do you want to pony up on their first fiasco, Maple Spring, at the corner of 8th & Spring? Isn't that the now defunct Reader's Cleaners & Industrial Nightmare area? Yeah, let's build a $15 MILLION dollar elementary in an industrial/commerce area.
That would close two schools, Spring Hill & Maple Elementary.
It would be more cost efficient to maintain/upgrade the neighborhood schools that serve their neighborhoods.
But who doesn't like a new building project? You get a plaque with your name on it!
I don't say this lightly, it will be over my dead body, because I'll suffer a heart attack or aneurysm if we close down our neighborhood schools, our neighborhoods, and, ultimately, our children.
