Letter: Lack of diverse viewpoints on board

Posted

Considering the present  Jeffco School Board's greatest success is spending large amounts of taxpayer monies outside of our schools and classrooms, this last week's board re-election announcement seems as bad a community joke as the  "No Cost (to us) Recall Election."

The district's lack of diversity inputs is more a direct result from the hazing and bullying promoted at public meetings by this progressive or liberal board and its supporters. So always consider educationally opposed concerned citizens, communities and students still exist. Eliminating any opposition's view from being expressed is just as bad if not worse than the previous 3-2 conservative board split.

This political polarization and biter political division fight set in motion in 2013 was continued in the board's last budget votes. The district's students are the only real victims of these "Morally Superior Education Battles." What will students continue losing to it in their educations?

Remember, the bottom line of all Colorado public school districts is "College and Work Readiness" at graduation. College Remediation needs for high school gads are still great. Most Jobs today require skills not taught to all district students. No High School Grad wants a job choice made then for life. "Careers" have usually been taught in our schools for decades as only achieved though College Degrees and Studies. Or were these first school job choices the "Career Ready" ones the Board wants to continue working for if re-elected?
