One school district is thinking about closing buildings because some are outdated and students are leaving.
One school district wants to add classroom space because it's taken on additional students.
Both districts are struggling to find ways to pay for all the things society and the state have mandated they must do: See to the well-being as well as the education of their students and prepare them for a world we're told will be increasingly technological and entrepreneurial.
Expenses that only mount with needless duplication.
Oh, and the principal school buildings in both districts are not quite a mile and a half apart -- less than a 10-minute drive, even allowing for traffic.
We can't help but think there's a solution that would, if not solve, at least greatly alleviate, the logistical problems faced by Sandusky and Perkins schools -- one that might also attenuate the longstanding resentments that have simmered on either side of the psychic trench dug down Perkins Avenue for years.
Can anyone imagine what that might be?
