    I find it funny that the parent who complained about teachers doesn't know how to spell salary. We have a new principal and are working hard to fix problems at the school. We were approved to hire new specialized teachers to help improve scores. Parents who support education will be satisfied with the changes. Parents who view school as a babysitting service will not.

    There are principals that need to get into real jobs. Remember... There are people that can DO and those that can't Teach. Get active in the school board and have the bum voted out. Put pressure on the school board. After all they were voted in vote them out ! After all you the tax payer is paying his big saery. Not many people get active in school board elections. You would be surprised how many friends you can get on your side.

    My child attended Tuba City Junior High School for one year. I was not satisfied with his educational learning experiences. The Tuba City Junior High Principal needs to move on and keep moving. I am sorry but after a year of my child attending Tuba City Junior High I removed my child from the district and enrolled him at another school to get a better education. I feel like my child and I wasted a whole precious year of valuable education.
