Base school closings on money to be saved

If in fact there are schools in Beaufort County to be closed for economic reasons, then perhaps the most important information that the district needs to share with the media and public is exactly how much money will be saved with the proposed closing of each school.

It seems to me this should be a decision based on bottom-line economics, not which school can garner the most opposition and create the loudest public outcry.

Too often in government decisions, the oil goes to the squeakiest wheel, not where its application would be most efficient.
