Do you support school closings proposed in the bond issue to save the district money?
Asked at Hy-Vee, 3504 Clinton Parkway on March 10, 2003
“Yes, I think it needs to be done because of the budget crisis, for the sake of our kids.”
“Yes, definitely. At some point we need to close the smaller schools to continue to provide the services the community demands for our kids.”
“I think there are other factors you have to consider. I wouldn’t do it necessarily just to save money. You have to look at how many people are adversely affected.”
“Yes, I do. I think the schools being consolidated are basically in the same neighborhood. I don’t think it will change that. There are not enough resources to keep that many schools going.”
