There are lots of ways for districts to save money without eliminating them. CHS could dump PLATO and use GED classes instead for alternative ed, that would save tens of thousands a year in licensing fees and equipment. Maybe that money could be redirected to Loving to help them out.

Facts are facts. A 11 to 1 teacher student ratio is very nice...if it can be afforded by a district, which Loving can't. I say this because the State picks up much of the tab for education of this small district. If a small district could fund everything without outside help, that would be great, but this isn't the way it is in New Mexico. Too bad, as they have nice facilities and a long history.

I blame Bill Richardson, when he took office the state was in recession, oil prices were low. But the budget was balanced, pot holes were filled thanks to Gary Johnson & his veto pen. After Richardson was elected the economy started picking up & oil & gas prices started shooting up in '04, providing even more revenue, Richardson & Dems couldn't spend it fast enough. Now their is no money for the basic services. But hey we got a $500mill space port & a $500million rail runner.

I attendent Loving school district for a year about 6 years ago, they reason Loving school graduate rate has gone up is because teachers always lower their standards when it comes to homework. Many of times I saw students not turn in homework or projects the day it was due and yet teachers would give extra days for students to turn it in. Other times 75% of students are copying homework off the top 25% students. Lots of the valedictorian students (My best friend kin) for Loving take their placement test for college and they find out they have to take remeidal classes. How can you be a top student and take remedial classes, so what about the rest of the student body I bet their even scoring lower. I used to wonder about the teachers and how they ever became teachers some of them are not there to teach but to eat, are they the ones from Misfit Island. Even the coaching staff is a joke you have instructional assistant coaching varsity HS teams, a McDonalds worker a coach, thinking she can coach HS varsity (her record speaks for itself). Their a lot of better qualified staff then those two, open you eyes Loving people. I say close and bring them up to Carlsbad and you'll see how many students will drop out because Carlsbad won't give them those extra days.

To the one that calls himself the ex-loving student you must be an idiot if you only went to Loving for a year. Look at the way you spell and write. I sure love the run on sentences. There is a thing called spell check. Why would I want my children going to Carlsbad where they would be shot at and bullied by wanna be gangsters. Carlsbad schools are infested with nothing but scum. I love my small school and I will home school my children if it comes down to them closing the school.
