Vt. Residents Vote Against Consolidating School Districts (Video)

| No comments

Last week, Education Week reported for the NewsHour about a small region in Vermont that was in the throes of a fierce debate over whether or not to consolidate its five tiny school districts into one. The controversy stemmed from the community's deeply-felt sense of local control.

This week, residents overwhelmingly voted against the consolidation effort. None of the five districts voted for the plan, according to local media reports.

Revisit our news segment (below) to hear from those involved in the controversy.
