We don't need a regional high school. Why? Haven't you heard? It's on TV all the time now. NY is making a comeback. People are moving here because NY is attracting business and taxes are going way down. We are going to need the high schools just as they are today to accommodate all these new NY citizens that are moving here. Here comes another busload now.

Silver is blocking local decision making and shortchanging our kids.

Carlaw is right in reply. Get your State legislative bimbos out of your local school business. Dump the Taylor Laws and move forward....What? Never will happen? Yup, that is due to the teacher's lobby as can be seen in this article. NYSTA runs your schools just like the Taylor Law subverts your local ability to govern and fund your kids education. The epitomy of the tail wagging the dog in both issues as well as the article description above. NYS is doomed until the citizens/voters take their government back. That will never happen. Government is "we the people." It's not I'm a politician and I'll govern by decree like Obama wants to do.

Goodell supports the regional high school legislation that would allow school districts to keep local elementary schools intact while combining high schools. This would to increase educational opportunities for high school students and reduce overall costs. The details of the regional high school would be negotiated by the participating school districts, thus maximizing local flexibility and control. Don't blame Goodell when Sheldon Silver blocks good legislation. Silver was elected by all the Democrats, not Goodell.

Goodell could not get a positive outcome on anything. Vote him out next time.

These decisions should be made on the local level and not mandated from the top down. There shouldn't be any thing to prevent consolidation if that's what they want to do and nothing to force it if the parties involved don't see any advantage for the students.
