Board member: Investigate item

Sunday, August 26, 2012

To the Editor:

Our school board cannot do justice to two school boards, functioning for two different schools philosophies without fully realizing why it is needed.

I request that we fully investigate this item I presented at a school board meeting.

Our school board needs to fully consider the pros and cons of two school boards and then take action if indicated.

Our corporation has two different school philosophies. Both are supported in our corporation by state departments. Education in these two environments can progress better without each school tangling repeatedly. Each school should have 100 percent control of their schools.

If this board can't establish two completely functional schools that can progress educationally, then our two schools should completely separate and establish two separate school corporations that can function separately.

We should not continue to blunder through our students' educational arena as it exists today. Both schools need elbow room to develop and apply their school philosophies.

If this takes complete separation, then so be it.

I prefer functioning together within one corporation.

Our students need a fully separated educational environment one way or another now.
