Nicely done, Deborah! Although we are part of a local homeschool network, congratulations.

Trust Jordan will act mature and not have actions that disrespect R8

To 6:06- that is an asinine comment. He is very articulate and professional and will be outstanding. You on the other hand just gave away who you are and what your motives are as no one else would make that type of comment. Good luck in your misery.

Did you see his rant at a school board meeting?

I think a better question would be - why is one church controlling the school board?
Currently the church has 43% of the voting block -
Didn't the district just get in trouble for violating church and state?

Seriously, how could anyone's actions make joplin r-8 look any more low-rent than it already does. Jordan's a step up from what they have now for sure.
