As I said before. I am going to vote for the Muscogee County School District SPLOST.
The school district does have its problems, but not providing adequate facilities and today’s technological learning tools is not going to solve them.
At the top of my priority list is greatly reducing poverty.
A lot of people believe education is the answer.
It can’t be, though, if the kids don’t learn.
Why don’t they?
Are the best teachers assigned to top performing Columbus High and Britt David Magnets?
One teacher said, “Put those same teachers at Columbus High and Britt David in failing schools that are full of Title 1 kids and see how well they do.”
Kids with affluent, interested parents who read to them when they are pre-school, and support them intellectually and emotionally to help them meet high expectations when they go to school, for the most part, perform much better than kids who don’t have that. There are, of course, exceptions.
Public schools reflect society.
Anyway, public schools are the hope of the future, and I’m going to support them. Hope you do, too.
