Read the answers from all candidates.

Questions & Answers

1. What effect would the community (charter) schools have on the public schools in your district?

I fear this would create a situation for the students in which they would become the "Have's" and Have Not's" as well as possibly syphoning off funds for the public schools.

2. Evaluate the adequacy of support services, beyond state standards, presently provided for special-needs students in your district.

I personally feel the Forest Hills School District makes every endevor (sic) to meet all types of special needs for its students with equality.

3. Has the use of proficiency tests in your school improved the education of students?

The Forest Hills School District already had a fine education program in force before proficiency tests were put into use.

Responses to questions asked of each candidate are reproduced as submitted to the League, but formatted for Web display. Candidates were asked to limit their responses to 300 words for all 3 answers. Simple spelling or typographical errors were corrected after confirmation with the candidate.
