Would be interested as to why Teachers in Polk School District send their Children to other school districts/etc, but feel ok with Teaching for Polk School District. As a professional with Polk School District, why do you chose to send your children elsewhere? You should be proud of your work and that of fellow teachers, enough to support the system with your own Children?
What about Polk School District Board of Education? Which ones of these members have children in the district? If you don't have a personal love for the system, as in a student in the district, what reasons do you have to care? Or to be passionate about the state of the District?
Why implement a NEW dress code into the system in January? Approximately 5 months into the school year? Polk county is a poor county, why would you ask the citizens of the county to purchase a new wardrobe this far into the calendar? It's insensitive and uncaring. How many School board members and teachers will be affected?
It's time to elect school board members who care about everyone, including the overwhelming majority of low income to poor. The others are sending their children elsewhere.
Also, when is it time to say, if this district is not good enough fir your Children; why should you be allowed to teach in this District?
