Ralph Higgonbothem (Taylorville School Superintendent)
This is the first year
I’m not dealing with complaints
Like a teacher putting a zero in the grade book
Before the assignment is even due.
I usually defer,
Telling them that’s not how we do it in Taylorville
Then passing it on to a principal
To do whatever they do with that kind of thing.
This year it’s all about me,
I made this glorious mess
In what could best be described
As a presidential move.
Everyone is fighting, parents, kids, community,
All of them.
They all blame each other
Leaving me out of the crosshairs.
