Panel Discussion on School District Consolidation Held in Washington, D.C.

Last Updated: August 09, 2013

Rural Trust Executive Director, Dr. Doris Terry Williams joined panelists in a discussion of how small school districts could take advantage of economies of scale and why across-the-board school-district consolidation may not be the answer to the issues facing these districts. The panel also shed light on the new ideas, including new governance systems that may provide better ways for school districts to do more with their education dollars. The event marked the release of a report by Ulrich Boser, entitled "Size Matters: A Look at School-District Consolidation."
