Letter: Puzzled by decision not to renew O'Connor
I am writing to join all of those who fully support Jerry O'Connor. The school board needs to reflect the voices of those who elected them to office. If they do not then perhaps we need to elect new school board leaders so that the district can "improve by heading in a new direction administratively!"
As the principal of the middle school when we added grade 6, hiring Jerry was one of the easiest decisions I ever made. He is dedicated to his job, admired by teachers, parents and students and devoted to improving education in Bennington...and the board wants to head in a different direction.... Anyone else puzzled by this?
