Galax should consider new school plan carefully

By John P. Kapp, Galax

In most controversies there are points in favor of both sides.

In the controversy over whether to move the elementary school to a rural residential area away from its present location and build an entirely new facility, every point is against and no valid point is in favor of doing it.

Galax has good schools now. The schools have worked well together for many years. They can share facilities and use city‑owned recreational facilities and exercise facilities near the combined school complex.
