Letter to the Editor
A call for doing what’s best for kids

April 18, 2012

Dear Editor,

As a parent of two Clarkston graduates and a teacher in this fine district, I am saddened to read the personal attacks that have accompanied the letters regarding the bond issue.

This is about doing what is best for our students, and what is best is providing them with the tools they will need to be global learners and deep thinkers, a goal that should be shared by all parents, teachers, and administrators in our district.

I have seen first-hand the positive effects that have come from this incredible way of thinking and learning, as evidenced from the technology fair recently held at the Board Office.

Each student will have their learning needs better met as a result of the passage of this bond. It will allow teachers the tools to teach in ways we have only dreamed about! I encourage each voter to put aside personal views of administrators and do what is best for students: Vote YES on May 8th!
