Should We Consider Consolidating School Districts In Leyden Township ?


School funding in Illinois is the subject of considerable debate as Illinois weighs the fairness of its funding formula and tries to narrow the budget chasm. Education in Illinois needs a major overhaul, not just a tweak.
That’s why, as part of this discussion on school finances, Leyden Township school districts should look at school district consolidation.
Simply put, there’s no reason to have separate high school and elementary school districts in Leyden Township. The money saved on administration could be put to use in the classroom.
The conversation should begin sooner than later.
