Letter to the Editor for Sept. 10, 2012

School board recall is a vindictive, divisive waste

A statewide school assessment has designated Baker School District 5J as one of the top districts in Oregon. Brooklyn and Haines schools were among 27 high poverty schools to be designed as models for others to follow. Baker High School, South Baker School and Baker Middle School have been rated above standard. (School information from the Aug. 24 Baker City Herald.)

We should be very proud of our schools and of the administration that has worked so hard to make this possible.

So, why then is there a recall of the school board chairman and another member? It absolutely makes no sense. They have done their jobs well. We should be praising the administration for our quality schools. This recall is vindictive, divisive, a total waste of money and time. Vote no.

Frances Burgess
