Is It Time To Tear Down The Berlin Wall Of West Bend?

Is It Time To Tear Down The Berlin Wall Of West Bend?

By Jeff Wagner. CREATED Aug 13, 2014

 As a member of the NIcolet High School debate team in the mid-1970's, I can remember going to  tournaments at West Bend West and West Bend East High Schools.  I can also remember being puzzled that these two separate schools shared the same building.

I mean why not unify it and just call it West Bend High School?

Four decades later, some members of the School Board are asking the same question.  Apart from effficiencies of scale, uniting the schools would arguably make West Bend more of a competitive powerhouse.  

On the other hand, tradition is powerful and lots of alumni oppose the effort to join the schools.

During the 2 p.m. hour of Wednesday's radio program, we'll discuss whether it's time to tear down the Berlin Wall of West Bend and unite the two schools once and for all?

Please feel free to share your thoughts in the Comments section - and be sure to check back later to hear a replay of the segment.
