Just wondering what people think about the up and coming school board elections. I feel that if your only running for for your own personal gains, then your running for the wrong reason. If you are sincere and really concerned about the kids in Crockett isd then I think it is a great idea to run for a position on the school board. I'm concerned that some of the people running are in it for the wrong reasons.

How the hell can you tell what the reason is ? Maybe they sincerely want to help the situation Then when they get there the politics and crap takes over and who knows......there's lots of pressure on board members ..never been one but I know someone who was and you wouldn't believe what he found out after he was elected (not here, but I'm sure it's worse in a larger district) just ead where CISD has spent $95,000 on legal fees so far this year? More than any district in the state this size ? WTF is that all about

Maybe because I know some of the people who are running and what their motives are. Maybe because they think that being on the school board can influence decisions in their favor especially if they have a kid in the school district or friends they are looking out for. You don't have to go to law school to know that some people will
do things for the sole purpose of self motivating reasons.

I have seen people run for school board over anger of a coach not playing their child. It certainly is out there and probably common.

Few people volunteer out of the goodness of their hearts. Those that do are a special breed.

I was referring to the legal fees CISD has paid out so far this year...95,000 so far ..accorging to the paper that's the most $$$ in the COUNTRY not in the state. Didnt mean that lawyers were smart or that you had to be one to know something

Man from Crockett, I agree we need someone who is going to run out the goodness of their heart. Right now the district need people who are truly concerned about the students in the district. There is so much bad things that are happening. I think people in the community need to visit the schools every now and then to see what is going on. They may be very upset about how things are going. When the elections take place and whoever wins I hope they visit the campuses regularly not every once a year. They are the ones making decisions about the future of our children.

Couldn't agree more!

It's amazing how many parents don't care or don't get involved. It's no wonder kids can be a mess.

If you get board members that place the kids first the rest will follow. I hope for the best, the kids need a good education in today's world.
