• Area Students Falling Behind

    The results speak for themselves, London area students are falling behind.  This is one of the reasons I am running for election as a School Board Trustee. I believe, especially in mathematics, we need to take a “back to basics” approach and refocus on core skills.

    Our students need to know their multiplication tables, be able to add, subtract and do simple division in their heads. They need to understand concepts like fractions and percentages. These are all skills they will need to be productive and responsible adults who are able to manage their personal finances and obtain employment in the 21st century economy.

    You can read the results from the 2013-2014 school year here:
