To the Editor:
My name is David Copperman, resident of Highland Park since 1988 and former member of the Highland Park School Board from 2004 to 2010.
I am writing to endorse the Highland Park Support Our Schools slate – Rob Magaziner, Sharice Richardson, and Ruth Beyer. They are great supporters of public education, and they recognize the remarkable diversity of our small community (and represent it to a degree themselves) and are motivated to build on it in our schools. Most importantly, I feel that they understand the nature of “school boarding” and will fill the role properly and positively. The board is responsible for open communications between the district and the community, under policies and procedures that are in place for clear guidance. And they are there to question the administration fully and appropriately in all areas of education and operations, on the community’s behalf. I believe that Rob, Sharice, and Ruth will provide strong leadership in those areas.
