  • When the administration & teachers can not communicate, then the students will suffer. The Superintendant of the EW School Corp. does not have academic success for ALL students as his priority. Extracurricular activities are great for building kid's self esteem & teaching kids that they can succeed as a team when coached by an adult who is passionate about seeing them excel & helping them achieve the confidence that can spill over into academics.
    It takes a large sum of money to support school athletic teams but it should not be given priority over OR at the expense of supplies, teachers & the school's education program. What good is the team's star player if he/she is failing in math? Funds need to be first applied to the teaching & learning aspect. ALL students will benefit from what they learn in the classroom. Very few will go on to coach, assist or be a professional football player. The school board must see that students are getting the highest standard of education available to them.
    Over 50% of our property taxes go to our schools, but many taxpayers have no idea how their money is being spent by the school board & the administration. Our Superintendant makes some foolish decisions & SOME of our current school board members are "puppets" when it comes to supporting his decisions. They are intimidated by him & are not doing the job in the manner that they were elected to do it. It is evident that the taxpayers are fed up with the frivilous spending & poor management of funds such as the poor planning concerning the current football program. Hopefully the newly elected members will bring back the quality & integrety of this corporation. This school has no tutoring program to speak of for the middle school students who need help in subjects that they are struggling with. This is one of the many problems with our school system. When students fall behind, there should be a program in place to evaluate them & a team of certified teachers to help bring them up to where they should be in their grade level & monitor them to make sure they are on task. I believe that some teachers teach to the students in the method they prefer & if some students don't learn using this method, well they are just left behind. And they continue to fall behind because not all children learn by the same methods. Many teachers in the middle & high schools are there to put their time in & collect a healty paycheck & the wonderful benefits that are provided. And they do not care if all of their students achieve a passing grade. Send "Johnny" on to the next grade so he will be someone else's problem. I will have to say that there are many great, caring & qualified teachers in our elementary school. The teachers & administration at EWES are topnotch for the most part. My kids have had a couple of teachers that should have chosen a career that did not involve shaping a child's future. Three years ago at a parent-teacher conference, my child's teacher complained & stated issues about another child's family life that never should have been mentioned. She also "made fun" of this child's parents. So I often wondered if she discussed matters concerning my child with another parent that should have been kept confidential. I wish I had transferred by son from her class & went to the school board with the matter. Parents need to be more involved & be aware of the decisions that are being made that concern their children & their hard earned tax dollars
