Dear Editor: 

I agree, wholeheartedly, with School Board member Christy Chong that the School Board needs to look into an alternative school for the emotionally disturbed children prone to violence. 

Having just retired after 23 years in the Flagler County school district, I have heard and seen paraprofessionals getting injured quite a few times. I don’t think it’s fair to anyone to have to deal with this. What happened to this paraprofessional at Matanzas is beyond belief!

In the past, Devereaux, Everest and Pathway, to me, were more behavioral schools, but we need one, as Christy says, for the emotionally disturbed children prone to violence.

Also, she is 100% correct that we do not need certain signs hanging in classrooms. Once one group starts hanging signs, who's to stop other groups from hanging their signs. 

How about we get reading, writing and arithmetic instead of what’s happening now with all these groups!
