Franklin County supervisors should have learned by now the harm they are causing.
Members of the Franklin County School Board are faced with choices, one as bad as the next, as they attempt to squeeze out $1.2 million in spending: Deny bright students the prestige of attending the Governor’s School? Lay off resource teachers and social workers who help struggling students? Bench middle school athletes? Freeze teachers’ salaries for the fifth year and turn back state money meant to boost their pay?
The only choice Franklin County supervisors have denied them: Do no harm.
