School boards fall prey to Edifice Complex
Several PA school boards put their Edifice Complex on display this past week.
The Danville School Board voted to renovate three elementary schools, rather than save costs by consolidating them, to the tune of $22 to $37 million.
Central Bucks taxpayers will face a property tax increase – which basically wipes out any “relief” from gaming revenue for the median valued homeowner – despite the fact the district has $30 million in reserve funds.
And in Kutzown, the school board unveiled a plan for an addition to the high school, for the price of $27.6 million.
