Remember recently when many large banks, corporations, and institutions were deemed “too big to fail”? We ask the converse. Can a public school be “too big to succeed”? The Scott County School Board does not think so, as it recently voted at a special called school board meeting, under the cover of Christmas break, to build a new elementary school. That vote exhausts the districts bonding potential (think money it can borrow) and effectively guarantees our high school and its land-locked campus will remain jam packed, at least until that bonding potential can build back enough to build a new high school. Best guess, considering inflation, is at least a decade. What is now best characterized as a “difficult to manage crisis” at our high school campus will by then be an outright catastrophe. All this in the face of evidence that appears to indicate our overcrowded high school is not making the grade.

That letter contains what we regard as incomplete information, funny numbers, and sometimes questionable rationale.
