What A Good Superintendent Does

LISTENS TO THE PUBLIC, TO THE PARENTS, TO REASON, AND ACTS ACCORDINGLY

Good for Superintendent Larry Parsons for doing the right thing upon public protest in Preston County. He changed course, as he very well should have. Everyone wins.

But not in Monongalia County with the Eastwood Elementary siting disaster. With the Eastwood Elementary siting on the polluted, dangerous, congested Mileground, everyone loses.

Everyone loses because Monongalia County Superintendent Frank Devono (and the Board) failed and refused to listen to the public, to the parents, to the voices of reason. In Monongalia County the Superintendent failed and refused to act accordingly. Unlike in Preston County, we all lose, the child students not least.

As Superintendent Parsons said recently, “A wise man changes his ways; a fool never does.”
