Dr. Ralph Higenbothem (Taylorville School Superintendent)
Most days are easy enough,
I have a list of grievances,
Late buses, complaints about teachers, money issues,
But this one threw me for a loop.
A group of parents is organizing
To rid the school of sports,
Citing medical, financial, and property value concerns.
They have a lawyer, a marketing plan, and some might say,
I can’t take a side, yet,
But the default answer is,
“We will study the issue
And make a decision that is
In the best interest of the students.”
