Thoughts on WB Schools Maintenance Problems

Warren Schmidt stated in a recent article "15 Minutes with..." in the West Bend News -see earlier post) that he had a:

"$5.5 million annual operating budget and 98 staffers."

Wouldn't you think that would take care of a lot of "needed" repairs at just 12 buildings? It seems to be more than sufficient, especially if there is a 5 or 10 year plan and key issues are addressed each year. Oops!)

Maybe what we need is a Habitat for Education group. How interesting if the community would come forward and strap on their toolbelts and volunteer to take care of these needed repairs. Concerning the "trailer" option - I would think $80,000 could build a nice additional classroom(s).

I heard of a cartoon of a Castle-size school with every adornment possible. A father is walking his son to school and the bubble above says, "Just think how smart this new school will make you."
