Re: “'This isn't working'

I read of MaryAnna's call every week that "concentrated poverty" is Rochester's largest problem, especially when it comes to schools. Lovely doesn't mention that at all. Could it be she feels she's cured Rochester's financial woe's ?

Re: “Rochester's school district and the push for change

The 2017-18 RCSD budget was $920,451,983. With 27,000 students, that works out to $34,091 each. Give every student a voucher and fire the entire RCSD, top to bottom. Open the city to all charter schools who would most likely do the job for far less. . This would also have a secondary benefit. I know most readers are against large corporations contributing to politics. This will go far in Campaign Finance Reform as the union would not have the huge purse anymore.

Re: “New housing fuels hope and fears

Why does affordable housing cost so much? Doing the math, the price comes out to $336,538 per unit. How many people can afford to pay even half that price for a single family house, no less an apartment? After that, rents will be subsidized at about $500 per month. Nothing against providing nice clean housing, but the taxpayer really takes a bath on these projects. Couldn't some of this money go towards creating jobs, instead?

Re: “Message to Commissioner Elia about RCSD's future: "Engage us in your decision."

You can do all you want with RCSD, but if the students don't WANT to learn, there's nothing the school can do. I recommend bringing this gentleman into town for a year and boost the attitude of the students, and it wouldn't hurt for the rest of the community to listen to this guy too. Les Brown:…

Re: “Feedback 2/20

I think the project is too small. There should be 3 or 4 stories of residential on top. It really wouldn't ad to the traffic and customers and employees, or area employees could live there and walk to work. Other properties should think about adding residential upstairs too. Try to make that area walkable.
