Letter to the Editor


At the School Board meeting between Gilmanton and Gilford, topics discussed ranged from new programs to school vacations.  The participants were informative, inquisitive, and polite.


Midway through the session Senator Jim Forsythe came to help explain new laws that have passed or are close to passing which would directly impact school districts and their upcoming budgets.  His participation was also calm, respectful, and open to all.


Suddenly, two teachers from our town began to verbally attack the Senator. What began as a civil exchange of ideas among two school districts and the audience quickly degenerated into a disgraceful display of personal attacks on the Senator and his party affiliation.  The worst was that not much of the attack had anything to do with the issues at hand.  This was the sort of input one would expect in a street fight; not at a School Board meeting!


Where has our civil tone gone?  Should we be afraid to speak and ask questions at an open forum for fear of being attacked by a dissenter?  Have we lost our ability to share thoughts and ideas without rhetoric or rancor becoming the issue?


I, for one, was appalled at the behavior of those teachers who chose that venue to air their contempt for someone who doesn’t fit their idea of what is right for them.  To those people I say, “ANGER MANAGEMENT” Please!!
