School Board President Can't Write?

I'm not sure what I find more interesting--the fact that the school board president (and former substitute teacher!) can't write, or the fact that people in the community don't seem to care!  Take a look at the e-mails quoted in this article.  It's not just that the e-mails are full of grammatical errors and vernacular English.  The e-mails just don't make sense!   (Remember that these e-mails were sent out to constituents--they are NOT personal e-mails!) A school board president ought to be a well-educated person who knows what he/she is talking about and can express his/her ideas in an exemplary fashion.  According to the NSBA and the Center for Public Education, the job of a school board includes making sure that students are meeting educational standards and preparing those students for college.  How can someone who does not meet the standards himself understand how to help students meet them? 

What is Mathis' example telling the children in his district about education?  That if they want to just slide by, they can simply claim poor self esteem and get their diplomas anyway?  Sadly, I think it's telling children that the adults in the community have given up on them.  Like Mathis, they've all decided that it's not worth it to emulate excellence for the children in their school district.  Sadly, this is a legacy that will impact these kids for the rest of their lives.

Symptom of a much larger problem...

Just one of the reasons we homeschool our kids. We want them to know that they can achieve anything--through hard work and discipline, not because they found an easy way out!

Hm, I think I missed the article itself..but I can just imagine. My husband and I used to read the communications that came home from his school in NYC in horror.
