Occasionally a comment is submitted to Mercer School Facts which stands out as being too important to be buried within the other comments.  Following is one such comment which carries an important message.

Dear Sheri,

Thank you for accepting the appointment of District Administrator. You have the unique opportunity to lead Mercer School to a more productive future. We all realize that the past Administrator’s dictatorial style of leadership was not effective. The removal of the teachers' union guaranteed that schoolteachers and staff were forced to comply with Mr. T’s wishes or face possible termination. The school finances are nearly depleted, due to extravagant and illegal spending. You need to literally wipe the slate clean and start by being honest with the school board and taxpayers. All records need to be accessible to the school board and DPI so we may rebuild a broken system. A vote should be taken among teachers and staff to see if they want representation by the teachers’ union. Please do not feel pressured by Mr. T., the school board has entrusted the future of Mercer School to you! If you feel you cannot operate with the many pressures said Job would produce, please resign now so we may find someone with integrity and honesty! We are sick of the same old song and dance!

    I think this will be another case of insanity. Expecting different results while doing the same thing.
