The El Paso Independent School District is pushing their “innovation” as an enticement to support their upcoming $669 million bond election.
I’ve got an innovation for you. How ’bout we combine all the school districts in the county?
There’s been that talk about El Paso’s City and County governments merging for years. Eliminating the duplication of services.
And the biggest beef about the school districts is that they’re too top-heavy with administration.
What if we just rolled the El Paso, Ysleta, and Socorro Independent School Districts into one big district?
We might not be able to cut the administration by two thirds, but I bet we could cut it by half.
New York City did it. El Lay did it. Why shouldn’t El Paso do it?
