But as difficult as it may be, Gross believes that the long-term answer lies in consolidating some of Long Island’s school districts. “There doesn’t seem to be any real logic for maintaining the 125 districts that we have,” she said. “And I hope that — as more people recognize that we really need to do something, and are willing to take on the difficult conversation and to do it in a way that’s systematic and not just an emotional conversation — we stand a chance. We stand a chance of maybe making some headway here.”
