LETTER: ‘No confidence’ in Jesus Jara?

Updated June 18, 2019 - 12:35 pm

I read how numerous principals conducted a vote of “no confidence” for Clark County School District Superintendent Jesus Jara because he took away their deans (Thursday Review-Journal). And why did he take them away? Because everyone was threatening strikes to get raises. Apparently they expected the Legislature and the district to give them what they wanted without repercussions.

But what they found is what every business owner deals with every day. You can’t always get what you want, and sacrifices have to be made when resources don’t cover everything.

Why do I discount the “no confidence” vote? Because that same feeling of “no confidence” has been in place for years among district parents who have had no confidence in these same people (teachers and administrators) teaching their children to an acceptable, appropriate and sustained level of learning. The hypocrisy is palpable.

Don't miss the big stories. Like us on Facebook.
LETTER: When did politics turn into a giant temper tantrum?

I see a lot of people on both sides with “temper tantrums.” How are we to teach our children if they see adults with angry words and demonstrations in the streets?

LETTER: Donald Trump isn’t great …

… but I am seriously considering voting for him next year, if only to prevent some Democratic socialist from being elected.

LETTER: On Baltimore, President Donald Trump and rats

Enough already about the rats. Michael Ramirez, in his Aug. 5 political cartoon, used that topic to get in a swipe against Baltimore and the residents of that large and historic city.
