NORWICH – Two administrators spoke at a Chenango County Retired Teacher's Association meeting on Wednesday, and discussed the ongoing issues schools are facing in Chenango County.
The two speakers were Gordie Daniels, the interim district superintendent of Greene Central School Districts, and Robert Mackey, the superintendent of Unadilla Valley School District, and they covered issues such as enrollment, budgets, and layoffs.
"I went to Oneonta State, graduated in 1987, and I paid $20,000 for my undergraduate degree – actually the Clark Foundation paid $10,000, and I paid the other ten," said Mackey. "Today, my son is enrolled at Oneonta State, but if he lived on campus and went full-time, he would pay $25,000 for one year – and that's an affordable education."
Mackey said rising costs all over the United States are contributing to the issues schools face today.
