It was interesting to read the article about the Columbia Falls trustees interviewing an “in-house” candidate for the superintendent’s position. Was I the only who thought the statement, “We’re underfunded. It’s still not at the level it needs to be,” a point to ponder?

Perhaps while traveling the country he hasn’t realized the taxpayers passed a technology levy a year ago for $500,000 a year for 10 years and just passed the $37 million bond for School District No. 6. I think the taxpayers have done a great job of supporting schools to the tune of $42 million in two years.

With terrible test scores in our local schools and statements such as this, it’s time for new eyes, new leadership and accountability with transparency.

Ronald Reagan once said: The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.

Our students are great and deserve fresh blood with strong ideas to take us into the future. A renewed commitment to the students and taxpayers would be a welcome change. How about casting a wider net? Our kids deserve it.
