GOSHEN — Emily Moore spoke during the public comment on non-agenda items Monday before the Goshen Board of School Trustee’s.
She represented a group of approximately 50 parents who are concerned about how their children are being educated within Goshen Community Schools.
The main concerns of the group are excessive testing, “one-size-fits-all” curriculum, lack of freedom for teachers to use their professional judgment and inadequate communication with parents, especially in the elementary schools.
“We want it to be known that the parents in our community care and want to be informed,” Moore said. “We want to be involved in conversations, as well as decisions, about how our children our being educated and to be taken seriously when we raise concerns.”
Board members listened and said they were appreciative of the parents voicing their concerns.
