Does it really take 45 people from the Richland school district to go to Mobile to study their school system? Wouldn’t it be more efficient to send ONE COMPETENT PERSON who would then return and report back to the Richland school system? If the Richland school system can do without 45 people at a time for a few days, perhaps they are excessively staffed and funded, and could do without a few of these positions permanently. Maybe Richland could instead use these resources to reduce class size or increase teacher’s salaries, both proven methods of improving schools.
