Letter to the Editor: A lot of mumbo jumbo from Jeffco


In response to Dr. Glass and his invitation for a conversation. I don’t know if it was me, and I have a Masters in Poli /Sci, but I didn’t really understand what Dr. Glass was talking about. To me it all seemed to be a lot of “mumbo jumbo.” There was nothing, as is the case of the board and the superintendent, on what the real goals should be: reading, writing and arithmetic.

Are there any goals to raise these scores and to cut down on less kids graduating? What does a “learning centered vision” mean? What kind of curriculum do you intend to have? I feel that all these lofty goals are all touchy feely! For the $1.2 million that the school board paid you, you should be able to speak plainly to the taxpayers and not give us “mumbo jumbo.” Unless that was the purpose all along.
