RIO: Rhode Island Oddities

RIO: Rhode Island Oddities

Rhode Island is more a state of mind than a state of the union.

There are about 66 school districts in Rhode Island. There are about 74 in Florida. Rhode Island has about one million people, Florida has about 20 million people.

The same ratios apply to libraries, police departments, fire departments, and so forth. Rhode Island could operate like Singapore—a city/state. There would be vast economies of scale and far more efficiencies in a small state where there isn’t enough top talent for so many positions.

But then, of course, patronage would take a beating.
