Letter To The Editor


To the Editor,

Sadly, another principal is leaving. This one was making some progress. She received absolutely no support from the Northwood School Board and was attacked repeatedly. Mentoring? Awful at best. Where to from here? It will be the same basic people doing the same basic search. More grist for the mill.


So what is it going to take to provide a better than sub-par education? Some say a curriculum director, an athletic director, a math specialist, a social worker, another academic para-professional for each first grade class, and of course all day kindergarten needing another teacher with para. Whats that, another $700,000?


What drives all these needs? Keep in mind that the new SAU hasn’t made a difference. How could it? The superintendent has publicly stated that he has no time to drive curriculum, nor has he the time to be in our schools.


We were told that an electronic smart board in every class and an impressive array of computers would help. They haven’t. We have the smallest class sizes around, hasn’t helped. We are spending almost $20,000 per child. Not enough. Every single person in our sub-par school got a raise. Again, not enough. Every single SAU person got a raise despite a horrible budget season. Not enough.


And yet, we’ll continue to do the same old thing and Northwood students will receive the same old results, a crappy education.

Worcester Polytechnic Institute Announces Spring 2016 Dean’s List


The following local residents were among 1,292 students from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) named to the university’s Dean’s List for academic excellence for the spring 2016 semester.


Emilee Gancarz of Northwood, is a member of the class of 2018 majoring in environmental engineering.


Logan Visser of Gilmanton IW, is a member of the class of 2018 majoring in mechanical engineering.


The criteria for the WPI Dean’s List differs from most other universities as WPI does not compute a grade point average (GPA). Instead, WPI defines the Dean’s List by the amount of work completed at the A level in courses and projects.
