Letter to the editor: 5A, 5B will benefit schools

Posted

As a Douglas County legislator, my conservative record on educational activism is strong. My last year as state representative I was awarded the Legislator of the Year award by the League of Charter Schools, and in a previous year I was the sponsor of a teacher accountability bill that greatly reduced the power of tenure. I know the educational landscape, and I urge a yes vote on the school district’s measures 5A and 5B.

I believe in market forces, so I support 5A to attract the best teachers. Isn’t it logical that a good teacher would look for the best-paying job? Douglas County needs to get in the market by offering more competitive salaries.

As for 5B, I was impressed by the district’s school-by-school listing of how the money would be used. Roofs, heating and air conditioning and security enhancements are the preponderance of the repairs. Subcommittees serving under several recent boards have been urging these basic repairs.

It’s important to realize that both neighborhood and charter schools will benefit. Vote YES on 5A and 5B.

Carole Murray,

Castle Rock

State Representative, retired
