Solution needed for hallway blockage in schools

To the Editor, I am writing about my feelings toward hallway traffic in public schools. I believe that we should be taught at an early age that people drive on the right side of the road so we can apply the concept to walking in hallways. Also, I believe that we should be taught to not stop in the middle of the hallway like cars do not stop in the middle of the road for no reason unless there is an emergency or they have to turn. I believe that this would make hallways safer and easier to move around in.

Viewpoint – All economies are local

Massachusetts communities can no longer rely on state or federal aid to fill their budget gaps. Therefore, each municipality must take responsibility for its own economic fate. Towns and cities are failing to take advantage of economic development opportunities and tax revenues. They do not understand how to create the optimum number of local jobs, nor understand municipal metrics that determine their economic well-being. They lack knowledge about their industry clusters, especially about which are thriving or struggling. They do not know the decision makers at those enterprises who pay business taxes and create jobs.
