Other Voices At May 13th School Board Meeting

Following the KEA presentation at the May 13th School Board Meeting, Kentwood teacher Joey Kraves and her husband, Tighe Kraves of Kentridge High, spoke of the impact on them of being simultaneously RIF’d, and called on the District to re-examine their budget priorities.  Mattson Middle School teacher Scott Van Gerpen questioned KSD’s spending priorities by pointing out that the top 20 KSD Administrators make a combined salary of over $2 million, and yet have not taken a pay cut, as KSD had proposed for Kent teachers.   Kentwood student Allison Willis finished the comments by talking about how Kent teachers and staff were people, and therefore deserve respect.
