LETTERS: South Waltoners speak out

Published: Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 05:44 PM.

It is quite clear from this data designed to evaluate outcomes rather than provide cover for underperforming districts, as the state has done, that appointed superintendents, rather than those that are popularly elected, are more competent at meeting the mission of their systems.

On Aug. 26 we have a clear choice. We can continue to accept mediocre performance as acceptable given the gilding of Walton's school district with a meaningless ‘A’ grade or we can do what we all know is beneficial to the majority, rather than a select few politicians who have nobody’s best interest in mind other than their own, and vote 'YES' on the referendum to change the selection of a superintendent from one that is popularly elected to one selected by our elected school board!
