Regarding Wednesday’s editorial
September 20, 2012
The most recent editorial opinion written by the Craig Daily Press regarding Commitment to Excellence contained some errors that I would like to explain and apologize for.
This opinion piece stated that teachers are noticeably absent from community organizations committed to excellence in education in Moffat County.
Fact is, there are indeed teachers, counselors, assistant principals, the athletic director, the assistant superintendent, the superintendent and board members involved in the three such community organizations.
This editorial in particular had many things that went awry. First and foremost a mistake was made in formulating the opinion based on information provided to us by one individual.
The normal process for our editorial board is to gather information from each source in every situation; we simply didn’t do that in this case.
In addition, all board members were not present for the entire discussion and therefore the opinion written was not a true representation of the editorial board.
I make mistakes sometimes and I believe this is one of my largest to date and I am sure I will make some in the future.
I personally feel like the majority of teachers and staff members employed by the Moffat County School District are committed to improving the results.
I know they donate far more than $20, $30 or $40 simply in the management of the education of our children.
I apologize for any problems this piece may have caused and I look forward to seeing our school system progress forward in achieving a higher standard.
