We need these electives. If they cuz language, how will we get into college? You need, I believe, three language credits to get into college. And Art, I want to be an artist. If they take that away from us, I might not acheive that goal. Many of my friends want to be musicians. If they cuz orchestra they can't do what they love. We need to save our electives.

okay you know what. this freaking betts guy is ruining my education. the only reason i actually want to go to school is so i can express me through art, music, fcs and all those other electives. if he takes it away he doesn't realize how many students are going to protest and how much the test grades are going to drop and how many kids will refuse to come to school. if we still had our old superintendent i bet none of this would even happen and if it would , at least he would be smart enough to know what to cut. none of the teachers should go at all. they deserve to be there and the stupid school board should just except the deal of a 2 year pay freeze and not get rid of any of the teachers. the students now and including the ones in lower grades and ones that didn't even start school yet deserve to have well rounded educations, not just be stuck with the 4 main subjects. i can't even sit in class for 40 minutes and consontrate, let alone an hour or an hour in a half. thats just rediculous. block scheduling will never work in boyertown. no one is used to it and no one will want to get used to it. so the school board should just grow some brains and do what the students, teachers, and parents are telling them to do.
GO BOYERTOWN SCHOOOLS ! keep going after what you want until we get it. we will over come this and keep our electives and teachers present.
You should really concern yourself with just getting your education. Art, music, etc. will do nothing to correct your obvious ignorance.

Then get your parents to pay for it. You will feel different when you grow up and are paying the freight.

Reading, Writing and Arithmatic; everything else by outside club sponsorship. If you want your kid to have it; you pay the freight.
