I’m very concerned about the Race for the Top program coming down on us. It appears to be a good idea in theory, but I’m seeing more and more details and potential areas in which this could deeply affect our terrific schools in the area.
Please take a moment to read this article, if possible. It spells out and links to supporting information in a way much better than I could ever do personally.
I’m writing more as a concerned citizen than as a Tea Party member for this situation. I think you are doing a great job and I want to support you as bigger things start coming down on you and the School Board.
Please be very cautious with this program and check out all the details. 10 states have rejected this and there has to be a reason. I want what’s best for our kids for decades to come and am not telling you to reject this program outright. Please be careful with these next couple of decisions.
Let me know if I can help you out in any way. If you did decide to reject the program because of concerns, please let us discuss details with you to see how we can support your decision within the District.
Sincere regards and thank you greatly for all you do for our county.
