Writer asks Tecumseh School Board what it stands for

To the Editor,

I read a great quote today.  It said, If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything!  So, Tecumseh Board of Education, what do you stand for?
Do you stand for education? Or, have you fallen for a football stadium?
Do you stand for smaller class sizes? Or, have you fallen for a football stadium?
Do you stand for up-to-date textbooks in our classrooms? Or, have you fallen for a football stadium?
Do you stand for our students getting a well-rounded education, including the Arts? Or, have you fallen for a football stadium?
Do you stand for providing special education to all students who need it, without busing them to another school, away from their social and emotional supports? Or, have you fallen for a football stadium?
Do you stand for having quality secretaries who handle a multitude of our children and their problems on a daily basis, or are you going to cut back their hours to the point poor quality is the only quality you are going to get? Or, have you fallen for a football stadium?
Do you stand for teachers being where they want to teach, rather than where they are forced to teach? Or, have you fallen for a football stadium?
Do you stand for having custodians taking pride in the cleanliness of our schools rather than cutting their time, salary, and man power? Or, have you fallen for a football stadium?
Do you stand behind the promotion that we are technologically advanced and can prepare our students for the 21st Century? Or, have you fallen for a football stadium?
Do you stand to keep that now out-dated technology equipment in working order by having expert technicians to maintain what is already lacking in this district? Or, have you fallen for a football stadium?
Do you stand for our children learning to love the printed word through our skilled and enthusiastic media specialists, or are you going to cut back their hours to the point poor quality is the only quality you are going to get? Or, have you fallen for a football stadium?          
Do you stand for building a fund equity to ensure the best quality education for our students, especially in financially hard times? Or, have you fallen for a football stadium?

TECUMSEH SCHOOL DISTRICT RESIDENTS:
Do YOU stand for a quality education for ALL students, which includes the Arts AND athletics? Or, have You fallen for a football stadium?
