The author reflects on the role of the Tucson Unified School District (TUSD) in the region's future planning in Pima County, Arizona. He says that the school is irrelevant to region's future because it has consistently worked on losing the public's confidence for 30 years. He emphasizes that TUSD is not part of the improvement of K-12 education in the region. He mentions reasons why the average enrollment at TUSD has steadily declined.
