No Weiner Delight

Posted By on Mon, Feb 8, 2010 at 2:51 PM

The state Board of Education didn't let a little snow deter it today from important business.

It rejected -- there wasn't a single aye vote -- the proposal that the Weiner and Delight school districts, which are 200 miles apart, be allowed to consolidate administratively to avoid being combined with nearby school districts because both are below the 350-student minimum enrollment.

Weiner's a winner and Delight is delightful, but the proposal nonetheless made a mockery of the law. And it would have prompted a slew of copycats. Cross-state travel by district delegations to plan for the pitch to the state Board were for naught.
