Jarrett not right choice for school board

July 24, 2013

I just finished reading your July 10-16 issue. It’s too bad Rockford School Board members don’t do more research before hiring a new superintendent!

Dr. Ehren Jarrett does not sound right for this city or any city in the U.S.A. It’s very sad what happened at Hononegah. Doesn’t he know we are all related on this earth through Adam and Eve when God created this earth?

The Rock River Times, please keep up your good works.

Sincerely in Christ,

Mrs. Bertha Reis

From the July 24-30, 2013, issue

    It’s obvious the first commenter doesn’t understand that this is posted under Letters to the Editor. That is the first indicator that it is a personal view of someone, so it is not meant to be more than one side.

    Yes, it is sad that anyone is mistreated, but at Hononegah, it was indicated that many black students suffered in a racist environment which included racist comments and racist graffiti. The principal failed to correct it in a timely fashion and the district(including principal and superintendent) were sued and lost.

    The sad thing is that the board members were very aware of what happened and continues to happen, but they let him takeover anyway.
