Where to begin….. yesterday we were treated to yet another paid propaganda fest in the Mercury from Mr. Hylton defending his plan to chop away at the school district staff.
Frankly, I find these ads annoying. It’s overkill. What other school board member is putting paid ads in the Mercury to garner support for their ideas? Hello! None!
Before we go whacking away at the staff, we better be darn sure any decisions we make are not going to jeopardize our children’s education and safety. There are state and federal guidelines regarding required staffing for things like Special Education. As we discovered in the past, what Mr. Hylton thinks he knows isn’t always correct. Case in point, the recent Sunshine Law debacle he created.
Again, why exactly are why relying on Tom Hylton’s say so? We have an administrative staff that seems to be constantly ignored when it comes to making decisions about PSD. These are trained professionals whose job it is to be well versed in curriculum, staffing and other educational requirements. It would appear Mr. Hylton seems to routinely circumvent these people.
This situation is out of control. Mr. Hylton seems to be constantly over-stepping his bounds. Something needs to drastically change here!
