Supporting Schools In Marshall County

No doubt the new Marshall County Schools administrative team will have to cope with headaches involving the new Cameron High School for some time to come.

The school, delayed for many months and costing far more than had been projected, is the subject of lawsuits involving contractors and the school system.

But new Superintendent Michael Hince, who officially began work last Monday, has said he wants to focus on improving classroom instruction. One task will be closing gaps in achievement among some categories of students.

Hince, Assistant Superintendent Corey Murphy and Curriculum and Instruction Director Woody Yoder no doubt will have to make some unpopular decisions. If those choices are backed by solid research, they should be supported to ensure all Marshall County children get good educations.
