Residents should insist on school merger

Sports followers of the local high schools are a bit perturbed because the local teams are still separated.

All five counties surrounding Taylor County have long ago unified or merged into one unit. The local Campbellsville School must make the first move toward unification. Thus far, the merger or unification has not happened.

One can think of several advantages such as better usage of funds and more equality of tax structures, better usage of facilities, and an end of segregation between rural and city students.

We, as Taylor County citizens, should insist on the merger of these two school systems so that we can be tops in the state in sports and educational opportunities, offer advanced classes in various subjects, and be united in one purpose.
