Remaining Questions for CCSD's McGinley

Dear Superintendent McGinley,

Hundreds of Charleston County parents and taxpayers came together over the last month to develop alternatives to the original School Redesign proposals explored at five district community meetings called by you. Three districts prepared alternative plans, and the two other affected districts made uniform comments in response to your plans.

With your revised redesign plan announced on Wednesday, you offered no evidence to the public that you gave any of these plans or comments the attention and consideration that they deserved. You also have not responded to the individuals who submitted these comments and plans to you in good faith.

If "stakeholders'" comments and outcomes of the community meetings are to be summarily dismissed, why did the Charleston County School District, in the middle of its budget crunch, spend so much money on them?
