As a seventh grader at Floyd Dryden Middle School, I feel the school board is not supporting students. I attended the school board meeting Tuesday night for the very first time, so I didn’t really know how to speak up. I plan to sign up at the next meeting to speak about the matter of the teachers’ contract.
As a student, I am quite concerned about this agenda. By not providing a fair contract, the board is asking teachers to work more, with less time to do it. The board’s decision not to settle a teachers contract is also hurting students.
