Transcript CRAIG ROBERTS - SCHOOL BOARD "My issue is: HISD can be a good urban school system," states Craig Roberts, Candidate for District 5, School Board. "It needs people on the Board who know about education. Ifve had experience in a good quality school system and I know HISD can keep its standards high for students and teachers alike." Problems in the system? "Serving the individual without the largeness of a large school system. So many specialists standing between a person and what he needs." "And regulations - Teachers are required to stay at school eight hours a day. Teachers can't vary that eight hours to accomodate working parents for parent-teacher conferences at night. This costs the child and the family." Improvements in the system? "Continue seeking out and hiring the best people for the ]ob. Many women, blacks and Chicanos are not hired because of discrimination. One qualification for vice-principal seems to be aggressive discipline with the boys: discipline being defined as the strong-arm and the big board. The people who qualify are usually coaches. What does winning a few football games have to do with the day-in, day-out discipline of a classroom teacher?" Craig offers an alternative: "In talking with the student, I try to get him to look at the results of his conduct. I tell him, fIfm not going to fight with you as a person, but let's talk about: other ways for you to "Houston Community College presents an opportunity for improvement by providing wide varieties and diverse selections for the over-50 group, high school dropouts, and displaced homemaker. Recent testing has shown that scores drop with income. Does this reflect the quality of the schools in low-income and minority districts? "Partly. Aside from outright discrimination, those schools also suffer a high faculty turnover; hence, a less-experienced faculty. Also, there is more to teach someone about banking (for example) if the student doesn't know any bankers. Kids spend so much time with their peer group--nights, summers--how much enrichment can teachers provide?" Craig Roberts has taught in regular and vanguard classes for 3 years, as well as 3-years experience in private industry. He holds a BA and an MEE from Rice University. Among his memberships are the Rape Crisis Coalition and the HCWPC.
