I don't see anybody on that board with business experience. I will also bet they can't even manage their own household budgets.

Cuomo questions why school buildings still exist — and says New York will work with Bill Gates to ‘reimagine education’

New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) rocked the education world — and drew strong criticism from teachers and others — by questioning why school buildings still exist and announcing that he would work with Microsoft founder Bill Gates to “reimagine education,” with technology at the forefront.

Seems to me the planning and preparing for the probable flare up of covid-19 in the fall and maybe again and again, until there is a vaccine, isnt a bad idea. I feel sorry for the educators and students who were blindsided with the closures and had to build the plane when they were flying it. I also hear there is a significant need to educate parents to support their children.

We need to be better prepared if the schools have to close again.

Improving technology for both teachers and students and developing options to allow social distancing and preventing crowding in schools, as well as better internet access doesn't seem like a bad idea either.

Hopefully, everyone is smart enough to make sure the teachers are heard in the process.

2. When you quote something, could you mention the source? Took me a lot of time to figure out this was from the Washington Post.

3. Seems to me this discussion has nothing whatever to do with the Waterloo CSD audit. Perhaps, when you do a 180, you could start a new topic? I almost didn't read it because of the topic.

This is bluezone's specialty. He likes to waste everyone's time by never mentioning the source. Or by changing the discussion to a new topic.

I am going to post a new topic with links to the Comptrollers Report and the article that bluezone quoted the title of.

As far as I know, with the exception of the Town of Seneca Falls, there has been little or no PUBLIC discussion of either the impacts of the State aid cuts or the loss in sales tax, occupancy tax, and casino money on Seneca County, its Towns and Villages or any of the School Districts.

And the public needs to know.
