To the editor of the El Dorado Times:

I am troubled by the exchange of ideas concerning the upcoming school election.

In the 1980s the best way to educate students who were in their “bubble-gum years” was to remove sixth grade students from the primary buildings and place them in a middle school setting made up of sixth, seventh and eighth grades. In the new plan, sixth grade students were divided into teams of two with a teacher in charge of each team. Some of the rooms were large enough so the chairs and desks could be made into tables where a group of students could work together.

Unfortunately, most of the rooms were smaller and did not have the space for small group work.
Most the rooms lacked sufficient wiring, storage space and equipment. We “made do” with what we had for nearly 30 years. Now is the time to do it right. Vote yes.

Sincerely,
