Again…with the "revenue stream"

In today’s Bee, SCUSD Interim Superintendent Susan Miller makes an interesting comment about finding leases for its currently closed facilities (and those to be closed).

“When you have tenants in there it adds to the safety and security of the environment,” Miller said. “It’s least likely to be vandalized, and financially, we want to find a revenue stream.”

The emotional and financial impact of closing a school reaches far beyond the revenue stream. Kicking kids out, finding non-existent renters in a dismal economy, repairing vandalism, all the bureaucratic twisting and turning…wouldn’t it be more cost-effective to just keep the darn schools open and demand the SCUSD board balance the books without this scorched earth policy?
