Opinion: Act 46 could use more coverage
At the meeting in Bristol last night over Act 46, it seems that there are a lot of questions about what it means.
One question concerned towns voting not to join the new and improved school districts. Seems the Legislature made the law a “take it or we will do it for you” system. Which left one open question, among many, and that was about a town dropping out of the district, like Huntington. Well, Huntington is in an area that modern news media doesn’t really cover, since we no longer have a regional/state paper.
The Addy Indy has covered such gaps with its coverage of Orwell, which had decided to drop out, but is now trying to rejoin their regional district. The rest of the state needs to know about how Orwell, and Huntington, do in their efforts to survive Act 46.
We have heard that Act 46 is to help communities with over worked superintendents and maybe reduce costs and maybe even improve the education of our students. We see nice high-quality words to describe this, but these words can have many different meanings and ways they can be put into practice.
In other words, keep up the good work, Addy Indy, in letting us know developments and clarifications as they happen so the rest of the area can follow such developments and be better able to help run our own local schools.
