School district decisison baffling

Meredith Carroll’s column, “Aspen School District’s Olympic-size gaffe” (Feb. 21, The Aspen Times), was brilliant. Going one step further, John Maloy’s contract was conveniently reviewed before the new school board was voted in. Also, the physical education and industrial arts programs have been destroyed. These subjects are essential to a child’s well-rounded education, as are all the electives, especialy in this day and age.

Parents, you need to pay attention to what’s really going on as many of the decisions are not in the best interest of your children’s education.
