        Due to Oregon's lack of funding schools, our small school district is
        reconfiguring some of our 6 schools.  Our district is proposing that my
        current certified library media job in one elementary (k-5) building be
        changed to managing four schools:  k-2nd elementary (800 students),
3rd -5th
        grade elementary (800 students), 6th grade campus (300 students), 7th-8th
        grade middle school (600 students).  Another certified media specialist
        would take care of the High School (900 students).

I am just wondering what other profession requires ONE person to be
responsible for the specialist needs of 2500+ clients (including staff) in
four locations on a weekly basis.

I have a full-time assistant and am busy as meeting the needs of 500 clients
in ONE building!

Time for parents to start agitating those who decided the funding about what
the goals of education are and why they send their kids to school, I think.
