Debt disservice - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Great letter in today's Tribune Review:
Debt disservice - Pittsburgh Tribune-ReviewDebt disservice
Tuesday, June 17, 2008

At a time when Pittsburgh Public Schools is facing a monumental debt of nearly $476 million, the answer to this economic crisis should not be more debt ("Hard numbers haunt district: City schools' debt $476 million," June 10 and PghTrib.com).

Yet, that is exactly what Superintendent Mark Roosevelt offers as part of his sweeping consolidation program for the Pittsburgh Public Schools.

Before we take another step down this path, we should ask: Would the planned program be doomed to fail because there is not money available to carry it out when it is time to execute?

I urge Pittsburgh Board of Education members to delay any decision regarding any of the planned mergers until a full accounting for all costs is presented to the board.

Our children's and our region's future depends on their decision. This is their last chance to make the right decision. They should not make it in haste.
