Letter - Time to wish Kane the best

Posted

In response to the April 7 article “Kane steps into new role under spotlight”:

Anne Marie Lemieux’s concern with Erin Kane understanding pedagogy is simply more politics as usual. Ms. Kane has invested over 14 years as a trailblazer, a leader and administrator in Douglas County education — twice that of Ms. Lemieux’s former tenure as a schoolteacher. Ms. Lemieux’s open bias and activism against charter schools is certainly contrary to her inclusive stance conveyed in her responses to a 2015 Colorado League of Charter Schools’ candidate survey when Lemieux was running for a seat on the DougCo BoE.

Public schools, charter schools, magnet schools, online schools, private schools and home schooling all together reflect Douglas County families’ “deep understanding of the diverse educational needs of students.”

We should wish the best to Ms. Kane, a successful, experienced, Colorado-educated woman, in her role as superintendent. It’s well past time to stop prioritizing the operative and activist bickering, lawsuits, campaigning and sloganeering and focus on the students — no matter where they get their education.
