After reading the Telegraph’s coverage of the school board meeting Monday, and the comments attributed to Associate Superintendent Tami Eshelman and school board member Skip Altig, it is difficult to understand where our school board administration is headed. From the board’s comments, it appears they are trying to reduce classroom expenses. In light of the past history of poor test scores, does this seem prudent? If the budget is such concern, maybe freezing all administrative salaries would be more frugal.
A friend of mine once commented that education is no longer about the kids’ education, but it has become a big business.
