Bob Mueller’s letter, “Give the School District the ax,” stated how outdated our school district is and how it has outlived its usefulness.

Mueller suggests the citizens of Summerlin, Green Valley, Henderson and other areas of Clark County should have control of their schools and their communities — that, if they wish to improve their schools, it should be their right. In these communities, we should not be burdened by taxes for schools in Elko, Carson City or anywhere else in Nevada.

I believe this could be the one thing that could help our school system, and I applaud Mueller so very much for the first sensible thing I have heard after living here 51 years. He should be head of our schools.
