Do we need all these school buildings 20 years from now?

You can get a college degree online, home school diplomas and who knows in 10, 20 or 30 years. I'm disappointed at the lack of creative thinking by the school board and school staff. All they know is more and bigger buildings.

More staff with bigger salaries, add lots more buses. I look back at Garrison, Pierz, Riverton and other local schools "gone" so more busing is needed.

Citizens ask for smaller local schools and the school system builds Forestview, which, with modern chipboard, may last 30-40 years.
