Perspectives: 83/365

Mark Watts (Former Athlete, Eight Bars Member)

We believe:

Ath-e-letes deserve good coaches
My child and those of the unspeaking parents I represent,
Believe we have not gotten good coaches
At Taylorville High School.

As such we are pressuring the school district
To give a full accounting
Of the hiring processes for coaches,
The development of coaching competency,
The evaluation process of coaching,
The financial commitment of the district to sports-
And music-
Because we believe,
The money would be better spent there.

Our ath-e-letes deserve better,
Our tax commitment deserves better,
I played and I know what it takes,
This ain’t it.

That’s what we believe.
