RHS library learning commons: “Funny how people complain when there’s a huge referendum and ask, “why weren’t these things taken care of over the years?”

When is it going to stop? Um, when there are no more children? The library hasn’t been touched since 1963. It’s time. It’s currently not serving the needs and of today’s students and teachers. And more than half of the cost is is being funded by donations. Seems reasonable to me. There is a website with more info about the design, including links to research regarding learning commons in general and the educational benefits, at rhslearningcommons.com
Funny how people complain when there’s a huge referendum and ask, “why weren’t these things taken care of over the years?” But when they try to do a single upgrade, 50 years is too soon and we should wait even longer?
And zero-based budgeting? The Board has never said they would do that.
Honestly, this is a needed project that’s been designed extremely conservatively and is being funded more than half by donations and not taxes.
