To the Editor: We don't need new schools in Wrenshall

To the Editor: Carlton, forget about consolidation
When two committed school boards have meeting after meeting and hit stumbling block after stumbling block, it is time to move on. If we continue to put improvements on hold while the communities sort out their issues, who does this affect? Our students. How long do we intend to...
