I have been in favour of a referendum because I believe the majority would see the wisdom of the school. That said, we do get a voice through our elected officials, re-enforcing the responsibility of careful consideration when it comes to electing them.
I would urge them to be very deliberative and in the sunshine when it comes to the location process.
One more thing, in case you have missed it. A movie has been aired on the internet that will be released in a month to theatres. It exposes the damage done to America's schools primarily because of decentralization and union work rules and tenure. It exposes that the Charter school option has been a great remedy and that every where they open the demand is greater than the supply, with waiting lists, lotteries etc. and that the most talented teachers would rather work (some for less money)in an environment where they get more satisfaction for actually being able to teach in an enlightened environment.
I don't expect that will change much on our local project...I beleive our local deal is destiny...but it could cause a tsunami in the way the politicians and the people look at what they have created...this movie and it's writer's are basically liberals that have come to a conclusion by overwhelming evidence, which they lay out but if you read political books, both Gingrich and Romney have chapters on American public schools and they mince no words on what has to be done. If you are at all interested, even if you disagree with the fundemental underpinng of the conservative agenda, those chapters are a worthwhile read.
With us...from what I hear and read...it is all about location...hope as grown-ups we can get that behind us.
