Regardless of players or process, the RIGHT thing to do is to stop putting tax dollars into a money Read Morepit, and start spending wisely. Good decisions cannot be made under duress, which is exactly the situation that the SB is faced with today. The pressure of ensuring that an adequate number of classrooms is available has been clouding good judgment. Again - process aside, the right thing to do is to move forward with longer term solutions that will yield a real return on taxpayer investment. In my opinion, the LAST time significant money had to be spent in order to 'save' the portables should have been the red flag that it was time to start planning an exit strategy for that structure. Therefore, anyone that was part of the decision-making process at that time, and is still part of the decision-making process today, should be questioned as to their ability to make sound decisions for Windham going forward. I haven't been in town long enough to know who that is, but I'll bet others do... Moving forward: We don't need charter schools any more than we need palatial works of architectural genius. We need basic, strong, long-lasting facilities that will provide faculty and student the right environment. Leave the politics at home and get the job done well.

Steve, I don't know if you were at or watched the SB meeting, but please take the time to do so ifRead Morey ou haven't yet. I agree with most of what you said. My only comment is that there is no solution for where to put the children next year, as any long term solution won't be ready for 1-2 yrs out, that wasn't factored into the SB decision. This is the process part I was referring to. We heard the board being concerned with the physical health of the students and understandably so, but no one discussed the emotional health and well being of students isolated at the high school for an entire school year.

Whatever else occurred - is it true that an "elected schoolboard member" actually recused Read Morehimself and walked out, then came back a while later to make a motion (and vote) on the very same topic? I didn't think you could do that.
