Simple Solutions to Overcrowding

Posted: Updated:

There's a lot of confusion and uncertainty over how best to handle high enrollment with certain schools in Charleston.

If this were the private sector, the school would expand and grow to meet the challenge.

It's a basic law of supply and demand. My question is, why can't we do that with John Adams Middle School or any other school that is truly getting our young kids prepared for life in the 21st Century?

Instead, we're toying with ideas about redistricting.

We can't be afraid of the simple solution – build more walls, hire more teachers and put the kids first.
