Concern over school board's facilities plan process

To the Editor:

We would like to add our voices to the opinions expressed by Eric Silverman regarding the process of the School Board and its likely dysfunctional outcomes.

We are parents of two Heights High graduates, both of whom have achieved excellence in part based on the fine foundations they obtained from Roxboro schools and the high school. In 1976, we deliberately chose to live in the Roxboro section to avoid the obvious, at least to us, deficits of the so-called open plan schools that had arrived on the CH scene. We now have one grandson who just completed Kindergarten at Roxboro and thus have a strong continuing interest in excellent schools. 

We also have a longstanding commitment to the true spirit of a democratic society wherein the process of obtaining input by the governing from the governed must be honoroably and adequately conducted if there is to be a fair and equitable, to say nothing of a productive, outcome.
