As a follow-up, Ms. Watt has endorsed the incumbents running for council, along with candidates that believe in expansion of facilities, which in itself is a continuation of more of the same........
Bear in mind, Ms. Watt also lead the charge for creation of a high school with an emphasis on a building a campus policy as a priority on this island. A vision which lead to an intervention last year to deal with disciplinary issues resulting in the replacement of a principal and exodus of teachers due to financial considerations. In essence, focusing resources on a physical facility vs resources to formulate and support a core curriculum/lesson plan and professional staffing.
Why? I believe it is the direct result of a MIA board with poor fiscal planning coupled with a misappropriation of resources, again a priority on building plans and the abandonment or dilution of a core curriculum with the introduction of electives.
And the folks, who continue to support a high school to be built with all the anticipation of a grand ribbon cutting ceremony to allow electives to be the stuff now reported in this article as a grand achievement. I am in awe the MIA board caters to non-core educational electives, especially in a community comprised of residents who sought and achieved excellence in their respective fields through sound fiscal planning and execution.
I do understand why Ms. Watt would endorse incumbents, because excellence is not a goal just a slogan.
