John Ford: Get someone from Russell Co., KY to help schools
John Ford's personal opinion about Comments re article 46782 Doesn't understand Adair School Board and textbooks
By John Ford
Personal opinions of the writer
WOW! Tthat is a lot of money to support a system full of masters degrees that cannot figure out how to get the most basic of supplies for the kids they are trying to educate.
Could someone from Russell County please weigh in on this issue, because from what I hear if you send your children over there they will receive the books they need?
Of course we could just rely on the old standby of putting yet another tax on...no... wait a minute they will have to rely on raising the taxes because there is already a tax for the school on every single bill that I pay.
Gale, I don't have the answers for you, I am just a small businessman from a little one horse town, but it seems ironic that they would ask us to pay that much money to support a system that ignores the basics of the reason they are there to begin with.
Sometimes Ed and I, well we don't quite see eye to eye, but in this situation I am in total agreement: Teachers, then books, then buildings.
I say no more taxes until they put all of those masters' degrees together and come up with a way to get books for every child for every class; and please no more games like one book for every desk, sometimes I have to read something two or three times in order to fully understand it, you can't do that in class, so they need the option of taking the books home at night to study.
These problems are solvable, Gale, if you have the right people in the right places.
My child is no longer in this school system but for the future of the entire community this is one subject we as citizens should not ignore. --John Ford
