Leeschools.net published results in May of this year showing that only 48 percent of third graders in our local public system were proficient in grade 3 reading. Math scores are somewhat better, but still well below 60 percent. This is a disservice to the students and very troubling, given today’s students are future mothers, fathers and workers. An educated population is key to maintaining a healthy economy, productive workforce and informed citizens.
While several of our district School Board candidates seem serious about serving on the School Board, only one seems to have an actual background in public education. Kathy Fanny of Cape Coral has spent her entire career life as a classroom teacher and reading specialist in public schools. She has the education, training and experience to help our schools improve their dismal reading and math achievement scores.
Our public school system has many challenges and has faced some controversy, but the bottom line is that the purpose of a public school system is to EDUCATE. We need experienced leaders who know how to do that. If you live in district, vote for Kathy Fanny for School Board.
