Wise Co is going to consolidate their High Schools. We live in the city but there is talks about the City School system being combined with the County School system. as of right now the county has 6 high schools and the City school. the enrollment ranges from about 250-470 students grade 8-12 in each school. our City school is on the lower end of the scale with a couple schools on the higher end. it is basicly 1 really small school, 2 small, 1 medium, and 2 large schools and the city school adding to the small school. Consolidation has been a dirty word around the county for years. the city has just gotten into the talk in the last year. First the county wanted to just shut down the 3 small schools and move them into the 3 bigger schools. that got a guy fired. no one wants to lose their school.

then they wanted to build 3 new schools at new sites. cost would be $90 Million. there has been fighting about this for years.

 

NOW HERE is what I'm going to need your opinion. The county has come up with a plan to build 3 new high schools for $78 million. What they want to do is build all 3 schools on one site. there would be a central area that all 3 schools would share like the kitchen and auditorum and maybe some tech centers. (just look at the link at the end of my question.). all 3 schools would have their own identity, just like any othe school. their own colors, sports teams, teacher, administrators and so on. Some advantates are clear like only preparing one side with power, sewer, water.... if teachers needed to teach at another school it would be just across campus.

At first I thought this was the stupidest thing I'd ever heard but the more I think about it it might work, I dont' know. I've always kept my mouth shut because my school wasn't involved but now that they might get involved I want some outside opinions. this will keep each school at an enrollment of about 666 each and keep us single A in sports

 

thanks

Strange concept, but I don't really see any problem with it at all.

 

In fact, from a young dude's perspective, they're probably salivating at the prospect of all the ripe young ladiez available for intercourse?

Sounds interesting actually. It would be interesting to see what the pros and cons are at all levels (not just money).

 

I was curious why you initially thought it was the stupidest thing you ever heard?

"enrollment of about 666"! Are they schools for wizards? ;)

small town, don't like to change attitude. after sitting with this for a few days I am beginning to think that it might work. the biggest draw back that stands out is the fact that you will have 3 rival schools side by side and it may cause friction

Having a daughter has changed my perspective completely and now I really worry about this! Then I remember that every male between the ages of 12 and 30 is on heat 24 hours a day and I worry even more. :help:

Haha. Yeah, I have to admit that if I ever think of having kids (which is still a big negative for me at the moment) I really would hate to have a girl, knowing how a guy's mind works. I'm sure it would bring me many nights of murderous thoughts towards any dude in her vicinity once she hits a certain age.

Just remember, even the naughtiest girl you remember from high school was someone's daughter. And her father was probably just a worried as we are now. And look what all that worry got him: Gray hair and a daughter that more than likely turned out just fine. :quagmire:

 

As for the high school plan, does anyone else see the possibility of constant fights before and after school between the rivals? Hell, our two high schools were on opposite sides of town and we still had guys getting out of class and heading across town to "kick some dicks ass" that had pissed him off or stole his girlfriend or whatever. The schools are always going to need some heavy duty security around.

    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
