LETTER: If you want to clean house at the school district, then…

Several people have weighed in on the problems with CCSD and the teachers/union. I am not taking sides, but I would like to point out a couple of things. One person gave a lengthy comment on the teachers deserving a raise. It ended with: “You get what you pay for.” Well, when we pay teachers, what do we pay for? How about a graduate that can pass eighth grade? Do we get that?

Another long comment suggested we “clean house.” I tend to agree, but they go on to say “remove the Superintendent (Jesus Jara) and the school board.” It takes more than one side to create a “fight,” so this will not solve the problem unless you really “clean house” and remove the unions, too.
