Boy, I’m not an individual that doesn’t think that sports are not good for our kids. As a matter of fact I coached Little League, Cyo Basketball, and the Mohawks Football. I just wished people would put the same energy that they are in keeping sports in the middle schools, in other areas of our community.
Yes, it is great that we have an out cry of citizens voicing their opinions on the reduction of sports in our schools. I would hope these same individuals would stand up for the other issues we have in our in the schools systems such as the reduction in special education. Individuals getting paid on temporary assignment for years such as the director of special ed. I wonder how much she gets paid per day.
Truly if a parent wants to have sports in the middle school, they should help defray the $106,000 that it cost to run this program.
I hope the citizens that are try to raise funds for these kid do well enough to keep all programs going.
It is about time we hear from the citizens of East Providence and have them stand up for a city that once was an all American City. Yes, November is coming and I hope these same people remember how we got where we are.
