It's Time


Here we go again.

Another school director here in our area has been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.  The feds got him for taking a bribe, and a guilty plea is on the way.

This comes on the heels of a report showing many of the children in local school districts have SAT scores well below the national average.

Thieves are running the school districts, and we're graduating a lot of poorly educated children.

There has been a move to reduce the number of school districts.  Management has to be more professional-- and honest. 

It's clear the sytem is broken-- severely broken.

Maybe it's time to blow it up and start over.  Educators and teachers have to be more accountable.  We have to elect people who care about the kids, not their bank accounts.  Performance over politics.

No one can be happy with what's going on.  We can, and must, do better.
