I have known and Bob for several years. He is an outstanding educator in all respects. How the school board can extend a driver Ed. teacher on the drop program and not someone like Bob is beyond my comprehension. What is more important drivers ed. or someone who teaches honor classes and AP European classes and is most influential in lives of his students. As a fellow department chairman (retired) I simply shake my head and ask what wrong with this picture.
