Maybe to state and county school administrators, students don’t count because they cannot vote. But their parents do — and so do supporters of those parents in the community.
For reasons of safety (preventing unnecessary trips on that dangerous two-lane section of Highway 1), economy (saving on fuel costs) and time (preserving student and family routines) requiring transfer of Cayucos teens to Morro Bay High School just seems like a no-brainer. Yes, what is effectively school district gerrymandering is complicated. But bureaucrats must find a way to do what makes sense. Why not make this transfer of students to Morro Bay High School truly about the students?
