No mention of total disregard of Irish prisoners starving to death as part of her total disregard for Irish issues. Shades of the attitude in 1847. Let the Irish starve, better with fewer of them.

Saying that Niskayuna needs the money more than Schenectady is totally astonishing. Niskayuna actually had one middle school for a lengthy period. To say combining buildings is damaging compared to the funding issues facing other districts is out to lunch.

Sorry,Schalmont parent, but the education at Schenectady HS is way beyond anything available at Schalmont. Sch'dy students win scholarships,too.

If your thesis is true, why has the nations wealth been transferred to the top 1% with everyone else facing stagnant wages and fewer or no benefits?

A bunch of ugly comments. Where is the news of the successful students, Ivy League admissions, courses in IB and the Arts far more than any school around offers, and other evidence of success? gina99 is half informed.

Did the editorial writer watch this week's debate?
Romney asked questions of Pres Obama which was against the rules.
He( and Paul Ryan) talked long beyond the allotted time every time they had the floor. Clearly a strategy.
Romney gave rebuttals when he already had his turn. When called on it by Candy Crowley he said I am going to make my comment anyway.
The President had to eventually behave the same to even the playing field.

I don't if the district is more favorable.
You should follow the money trail. Where is it coming from? Who is really funded this proposal and what would they bring to the district?
Do you want to saddle Schenectady with Brighter Choices?

The headline should read bankers and financial career salaries are out on line.

So protecting medicare,medicaid, and social security, protecting food safety and the environment, spreading the tax burden to the 1% is a collective mentality.
Give us a break,please. Nearly everything Obama has done was the Repubs agenda until he got elected. The real agenda is unwinnable by landslide so they stoop to collective mentality and other outrageous lies. Same as every election since Nixon.
