Bad medicine

Ever year, for the past few years, it’s been the same old story: around springtime as School Board budgets come due, dire warnings are sounded over the possibility that employee layoffs may be needed to close a looming shortfall.

At the end of the day, ways are found to avoid the dreaded “L” word.
