Marilyn Young
Hello All, Great Question!
Carrie Bartlett
New teacher focus is great. Necessary, but as an 18 years in educator, the LACK of focus on retention of EXPERIENCED teachers is disappointing and hurtful for our state. Period. Help with furthering our education, experience bonuses, SOMEthing. Honestly, you’re going to lose a lot of us this year.
David Rubenstein
Due to COVID and some students not returning to school, will you introduce and support a bill to hold districts hold harmless for this year to determine MAEP for next year?
Ellen Reddy
Thank you Chairmen Bennett and DeBar for your time. Have to leave for another meeting,.
Ronnie McGehee
With October and November being our ADA months that determine funding for 2021-22 and a large number of districts have a loss of students from last year to this year can we ever adjust from ADA to ADM so districts can properly plan from one year to the next?
Charles Araujo
Rep. Bennett and Sen DeBar - I appreciate your willingness to meet with us. What is your thought as education chairs toward increasing health and mental health services in the school system?
Darein Spann
History test does hold students back
Darein Spann
What they can do is urge the governor to send a letter to US Sec of Ed asking for a reprieve again. other state governors have done it. You just gotta ask. You just said virtual is not idea. so why would we expect students to pass a state test?
Lisa Karmacharya
As a former special educator - thank you!
Darein Spann
