School District Election Issues

11 Nov

 Read a couple of posts wherein a parent worried about the impact on kids after pending/possible school district cutbacks…someone suggested that things will be ok because mom and dad are the primary people in kids’ lives….certainly so, but there’s much more to the story….

Unfortunately, dad and mom can’t always provide the opportunities that a school system can (nor other forms of goverment, for that matter)…not without paying much more for them personally, in any case.  We had a long discussion with our son last night, now in OSU’s MBA program and a longstanding cancer survivor; we were talking about the “me” perspective vs. the “we” perspective when it comes to businesses and a whole lot of other things in life. As a former Hilliard school board member as well as a volunteer, it’s been my experience that the folks on the board and in the administration have long endeavored to be on the “we” side of the spectrum. If that were not so, the district would not have the premium standing it has earned.
