More thoughts on Southeast

At last week’s meeting, the Wichita Board of Education dealt with idiotic social media rumors and emotional input on the future of a high school in southeast Wichita. Apparently, a good many people believe the Board has already decided the issue. They have not.
Should U-S-D 259 build a new high school further to the southeast … where population growth is projected … or renovate the current Southeast High School? Or should it do both?
Problem is, there is not enough 2008 bond money available to keep both schools open, staffed, and operating … thanks to state funding cuts the past few years. Superintendent John Allison says citizens should blame the legislature, not the school district.
It appears constructing a new school will be less costly overall, in the long run.
Southeast students, faculty, and graduates are understandably proud of their school. But ultimately, their pride may be a lower priority than what is best for the school district overall.
Our thought for today is from Flannery O’Connor:
“The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.”
