At last week's school board meeting, LWSD Director Mark Stuart suggested taking students to the school construction sites to study construction engineering AND the trades. Hiring and pay is strong in the trades. What a novel, innovative teaching idea! Board member Cassandra Sage agreed with Mark. President Bliesner tabled the idea to move the meeting on.
In my opinion, the construction sites shouldn't have to be restricted to schools like Juanita. This site can be easily and safely studied from a sidewalk, rain or shine with no mud. Teachers could plan field trips around convenient times for the workers to learn from them,,,, maybe lunch time.
