Remember this, Trimble County has one of the worst educational systems in the 120 counties.
Who shall we place the blame on for the lack of educating our youth? Maybe most of us would place the blame on the teachers that will not teach or cannot teach. I for one will not place the blame there for the majority of the teachers in Trimble County are doing their best with what education tools they do have. For a long time now our youth has not been given all the educational tools that is needed to enhance their learning needs. The reason many may say is because the school board’s priorities have been misguided. Think about it, the schools do not even have enough books for every student. The school board would build a two million sports center that the taxpayers and their children will be paying for for years to come. Yes, I too would like the center to be built at a much later date but priority one is education.
As a grandfather of one of the students and a taxpayer I’m asking you the ones that think education needs to be priority one for our children to join me in requesting all the school board members to resign and a special election be called to elect new members to forge a movement for a better future for our youth. If we shake our heads and look the other way then we have destroyed a brighter future for our youth.
