What a joke. More wasted money of bloated Haveys do nothing school fantasy.

Why should we give money to Bell? So we can take care of the children of illegals? No, Americans first, not scammers using our generosity and laughing behind our backs at us for our stupidity and gullibility.

I know the kids of Bell and their families. You should help them because they are wonderful AMERICAN families who send their children to a second rate school. The other schools in the district have top technology, wonderful grounds, and top notch heating/cooling systems. The students at Bell enjoy none of those things. The one thing they do have going for them is a dedicated staff of teachers and support staff who work tirelessly on their behalf.

Here are some facts for you to digest....
Bell routinely shows the most improvement on the Short Cycle tests in the district in both math and reading. The money, once it reached the state, stayed in the districts north of Socorro (as always seems to happen). Harvilee, for whatever poor traits she may have, did put forth a top effort in the application for this much-needed money.

Don't blame Harveylee Moore for this problem. She is doing a great job in my opinion. Blame the lawmakers in Santa Fe for refusing to acknowledge the Southern part of New Mexico.

And if you are pleased with the way Luna County is treated, then keep voting for the SAME DEMOCRATS and you will be assured the same quality government well into the future.

Wake up people and make a change!

I am a parent of a child in the Bell school area.
This is realy a good school. I dont know why there is't much students there at this school . My child has been in Memoral, Batan, And Not NOWHERE did these two school compaired to the GREAT education my child got in Bell school. The teachers there are great, there my child got interventions on mondays tuesdays and wedsdays the staff there are great people and care if your child in need of help and CARE if your child is lacking on a subject. They get you the help and you will be amazed on how fast your child will get it my child did and I am very proud of my child. See you all next year. Have a great summer Bell school staff.

Too bad half of the named schools are reservation schools. The Feds stick us with these education standards but provide little regular help. Teachers can only do so much. When the parents of failing students start caring as much as the teachers and principal then their kids will progress more quickly. This is so clear in lower socio-economic 'hoods, reservations and border region schools. Yet if anyone points this out they are immediately called racist. Not a realist but a racist.

The state knows better than to dump large amounts of extra money on the border for a student population that may, or may not, be around tomorrow or next week.

I wonder if the school system would sell off all of the land that they bought a few years ago
(approx 200 acres) if they would have the money to support Bell.

If you would like to see the schools grant application you can go to the PED website and see why Bell might not have received the money.
