Looking for changes in the school district

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

I found it very interesting reading the letters to the Editor from one of our School Board’s mothers, re: all the School Board and school’s issues,when I have never seen Mrs. Besich at a School Board meeting.

I’ve attended a few School Board meetings, but, sadly I haven’t attended as I should. I went through the School Board system and Superior Schools when I was young. I’m thankful I don’t have to attend Superior Schools now. I remember all the Superior pride, all the Panthers and, most, that the families were active. There’s not a lot to be proud of, now. We wonder why so many of our Superior students attend schools in other towns. Really? Isn’t it clear why the parents and people encourage each other to move their kids to other school systems? Even the kids want to go elsewhere. Obviously, there are many reasons why, and it leaves a big black eye on the Superior school system.

Mrs. Besich states, “The Board has worked countless hours trying to bring our school system up to State and Federal mandates. “ The key words in that statement are “trying to bring our school system up to State and Federal mandates.”

When did our school’s drop so far down and why? Ask yourselves. Superior citizens, who is in charge to make sure our schools stay up to par? Yes, it’s the school’s leadership and administrators they hire that cause these deficits!

When the School Board is questioned by the parents and residents about all the problems the school is facing, they pass the buck ban or to … well … they don’t say who the buck goes to. They deny, give excuses, put the blame elsewhere, or explain they are working to correct the issues, but, if nothing changes, nothing changes. That’s our current administrators and school board.

I want to see a safe place for kids to go to school. The schools need to ensure this at all times. There was a time when getting our education was the number one priority. Now, going to school and hoping something bad doesn’t happen to you is the number one priority. Our Junior High is the lowest list of grades per state statistics. On whose watch did this happen? Don’t ask you’ll get more excuses, denials, stories, but, no one will take the responsibility because they know the people will demand they be removed, whether its teachers, administrators, and/or school board members. Is that a bad thing? No.

Mrs. Besich, attend meetings, take your friends and find out for yourself.

I am promoting big, major changes in our schools and we need them now! People, get on my bandwagon, get off the broken wagon system we’re on now.

Sincerely,

/s/ Lloyd L. Andrews Jr.
