Description/Abstract: The depth of Hempstead's difficulties and the lack of talent and cohesion among school officials suggests that the district's actions may not be enough to ensure a quality education and safe environment for its students. Leadership isn't the only deficit. State school aid and local tax policies have deprived the district of its fair share of funds, placing a burden on officials and homeowners alike.
