Today, we’ll listen to from the three candidates for Carl Junction Board of Training. Incumbents Larry Cowger and Robert Hays and challenger Jason Mickey find two seats with a 3-12 months time period.
What do you imagine are some of the most significant problems dealing with students today in the district? How would you attempt to fix individuals concerns?
Cowger: Anxiety and psychological overall health continues to be a dilemma for young children. Concentrating on increasing that for children.
Hays: Trying to keep up with the ever-shifting earth. This can be finished by producing certain our curriculum addresses the needs of all our pupils. To go on to make guaranteed we have the vital techniques in place for our college students to continue to be in college all through times of pandemic. I am very pleased we (faculty board and administration) carried out methods this calendar year that allowed our pupils to stay in university during COVID-19.
Mickey: We are living in unique times these days with what has happened more than the previous couple many years. I consider one of the major challenges for children to triumph over is resistance from grown ups about them. It is much extra tough to get mother and father concerned in center university/superior university when pupils do not start out acquiring included at a younger age. This is even far more of a challenge more than the past few of many years with COVID-19. If young children want to get included with an exercise at a youthful age, their parents are much more possible to accommodate their children with this new obstacle. It is less difficult to keep this involvement in things to do fairly than starting off at a later on stage in a child’s existence.
