Dear Governor Jared Polis,
“My ability to focus as a father on making sure that my son is safe and not being so angry with the administration, principal and the superintendent because of their lack of empathy and concern for his well-being,” Kleckler told Steamboat Pilot & Today on Tuesday, Feb. 8. “I felt like I could no longer be effective as a school board member without wanting to strangle the administration.”
How does this sit with you? Do you think there is something wrong here? Because I do. It isn’t safe for children to go to school and career educators like myself and these parents are being pushed to their limits.
How are we going to fix our schools without having to engage more lawyers and endanger more of our children’s lives? I know that’s been the way school business is done in Colorado and it’s WRONG. These are our children.
I’m still here ready to work for Colorado when you’re ready for me. I know we need the help.
