I found a solution that might just work in the Northland School District Association. I am not normally liberal in my viewpoints, but I found an idea brought up by US Vice-President Joe Biden, Democrat-Delaware when he was the Senior Senator from Delaware intriguing.
He proposed that in the Iraqi Theatre of battle that the country still be united as Iraq, but that it be split up into autonomous regions. With each region having operational control of state matters, but having one person in charge of national matters such as security. This idea is excellent. So there would be a region for the Kurds up north, with the remaining sections being split between the Sunni & Shia Muslim factions.
Folks such as Arab & Coptic Christians & Jews would be free to of course practice their own religions. This solution would immediately end the tribal violence in Iraq & stop the backstabbing & murder of innocents. Then the US & othernations could leave, with the exception of United Nations troops who would stay in for peacemaking/keeping purposes.
So David I propose that you split the Northland District up into 4 quadrants. 3 with 6 schools & 1 with 5. This will allow you to appoint four administrative heads who can work in conjunction with the sole Trustee, Mr. Kelly. Giving each some autonomy & respect will in the end cost a bit more. But I think keeping the District together under 1 banner with 4 regions makes sense. Decisions will get made faster & the kids in the 1 district where the new school has been built can enter it much quicker.
Let us use the resources we have now David. Let us work for the kids. Just because a child or children are of aboriginal descent doesn't mean their opinions are any less valuable or their educational needs are any less important.
