Viewpoint: MCLB kids remain in Worth schools

We're relieved that Worth County School Board members changed their minds and will allow MCLB students to remain enrolled in their school system.

And while we don't disagree with the school board trying to save taxpayer money, they sure could have handled it better.

A decision of that magnitude required more thought, more input and better communication.

Had board members met with MCLB leaders first, they likely would have reached this new agreement and saved all of Worth County the embarrassment of the last few days.

We hope there's a lesson learned here, and that consideration and communication will factor into all decisions that affect our students and our communities.
