Analysis Of The ‘Proposition SPS’ Bond Proposal

As you will discover, we reject the false choice between this particular proposition and doing nothing.  We believe, and with evidentiary support, that there are significant defects to this approach i.e. closure, consolidation and multiple new facilities).

We do favor a policy dedicated to repair, rehab, and renovation (where necessary) but not widespread replacement and abandonment of buildings.  We also favor the adoption of several classroom teacher focused alternatives referenced in our statements.

Our critique centers on the lack of any causal or correlative relationship between new facilities, or high MGT scores, and academic achievement.

The statements below provide a broad view of our analysis.  We hope you will read them in their entirety.
