Would be cheaper to run fewer large schools than many smaller schools. But in the short term, yes it would be a problem.

My thing is, while I don't want to go paying more taxes and understand we need to rein in spending on many, many things (I've said many times that while I support social programs, they desperately need to be restructured), there's something offputting about using the word "cheap" in conjunction with "education."
No we could perhaps consolidate all county schools in that area, or build a few new schools, or choose existing ones, and remove the staff and let the state directly run them and hire good proven teachers for those schools. For that whole region you could probably use 10-15 schools and do this.
Not in this case, I am saying cheaper in operating cost. Not having worse teachers.
Honestly, situations like that may be a great opportunity to get more young teachers (including but not just recent grads) as a sort of "revitalization" and "reimagination" of education. I think a little youthful spunk would be good for this state.
Between you and me, I'm not sure we could do much worse in some cases.
I take that back. I forget that Mississippi is still a thing.
But everybody else can see your post.
Does it look like I'm talking to myself?
I am just saying, it isn't between you and me. It's very public.
Ah, you see, I out kicked my own statement. There's that Alabama education for you.
Science is what has driven our economy and what will drive it in the future, but yeah it doesn't matter.
Don't live in Bama but I my guess is it turns out similar to the HS bussing they do here locally. Started it in 80s. Now instead of 4 decent/good HS and 2 bad ones, there are 6 bad ones.
Ideally yes, but not realistic. Parents are a huge prt of the success of a school system. Bad schools typically have a high % of bad parents. You can't legislate or curriculum or better teacher that problem away.
