A 50% cut in positions across the board would STILL leave a TREMENDOUS amount of wasted tax dollars!!

Just like any government entity, they EXPAND and hire at record rates while the private sector is down sizing and laying off!!

We didn't need RESA for the past 50 years so why do we need these tax burdens now!!!!!

RESAs are REGIONAL. The whole point of them is to be an intermediate step between the county level and state. Plus, the audit performed on the WV Dep. of Ed. showed how the state agency was too large. Meaning that funds need to be shifted to a more local level.

Counties sharing legal counsel sounds like a great idea. I hope the school districts eventually move forward with this. Same thing with child nutrition.

A lot of cost reduction if this goes through.

We don't need to pay for 6 RESAs. It is an absolute WASTE of taxpayer money and duplication of administration. Eliminate all but one.

RESA was created several years ago. Are our schools any better? What a waste of tax dollars (like most bureaucracies).
