My fear is that, many times, when a charter school arrives on the scene, some of the biggest advocates for public education throw all their energies into the charter school, depleting the community of some of the most involved parents and community members.
School begins tomorrow, and I am concerned about some issues I have observed and experienced at Cross Keys High School. First, I want to say that I have experienced nothing but a warm welcome from the administrators and teachers at CKHS. The administrators have worked with me on receiving my desired schedule; they have ensured I had any material I needed to access my computer, gradebook, and email; and they have dropped by my classroom several times to make sure things were going well. My complaint is not against them at all. I believe they are doing all they can to equip their teachers with what they need so that we can provide the best education possible to our students.
