Mr Dameron said he is con- cerned about two major problems facing our schools, "finances and consolidation. Our state govern- ment, in an attempt to balance the state budget, is drastically reducing funding of our schools. There must be another way. We cannot short change our young people. There is no substitute for a quality education. We must spend our available funds in the manner that will give us the greatest value for our expenditure but arbitrary cuts in the education budget are not wise. "Concerning consolidation, some of our students already spend ex- cessive amounts of time in transit to and from school. This tires them out and affects their school perform- ance. It also limits their participation in afterschool activities. Consolida- tion will only worsen this. Consolida- tion is probably unavoidable at some time. We must not rush into it. Our preparation must be thorough and complete. We must consider all the advantages and disadvantages before we put it in action here in Monroe County," Mr Dameron said.
