Touchee L.W. Hunley.

Ms Tisue remains as clueless as prior to her election. Title 1 designation is reached as the result of the number of enrolled students that receive free/reduced fee lunches. Free/reduced lunches are a GOVERNMENT, using taxpayer money, program that determines student eligibility through the use of that student’s household income. Low income families are, in the majority of cases, living in higher crime areas. More so many are in single parent homes. Some are homeless. Title 1 schools do NOT necessarily perform below those that are NOT Title 1.

Discrimination as a result of NOT retaining teachers Tisue says. Well Ms Tisue how about getting off of your collective butts and do something about it. You might start by allowing the principal of a school to determine teacher retain ability. As was the case years ago. You might start by getting rid of some of the damned government (incl you) regulations. You might start with teacher evaluations tied to student performance.

What in hell do you do exactly. Are you just another Udall? It is indeed “our duty” to offer a great education to all. If elimination of Title 1 status is paramount in your eyes then subsidize ALL of the affected families and thereby eliminate Title 1 status. If teacher retention is the problem then do something about it.

Indeed, what exactly is your duty to the electorate and students. Discrimination indeed. Are you gearing up for re-election?
