I hope he was misquoted. Maybe not. In this mornings LMT Dr. Fiske was
quoted as saying he felt the district could interpet the passage of the
levy as an indication from voters that they(the district) had made the
changes that needed to be made. That is NOT what I wanted the School Board,
administrators, or teachers to hear from this election. I believe Moscow
School District has LOTS of room for improvement. There is excellence in
the system but there is also complacency and fear. Let's do better. I am
saddened that this discussion about improvements has been polarizing and
painful. Is expecting improvement or change so threatening? I hear people I
respect speaking unkindly of others behind their backs and not listening.
Is this what we want to teach our children? I want my children to learn to
listen to the people around them, to make informed and compassionate
decisions. I want the people dealing with my children to have the courage
to share their excellence, model their best and not shirk that
responsibility of expecting the same from others.
Too much to ask for the pay?
I hope we aren't teaching our children that we only do our best for six
figures or stock options.
