Please, all of you Hopkinton Town Councilors, at the pending Chariho Omnibus meeting, demand to know why our excellent, 5-star elementary students are reduced to 3-star learning when they enter Chariho Middle School! Get mean about it, demand an explanation, demand reduced taxation for such poor performance.
Throwing money at this is not the answer. Returning fifth- and sixth-graders to their neighborhood schools is the answer. That austere, cell block of a middle school is the antithesis of a comfortable, non-threatening learning environment. The uncontrolled upper-class bullies, the teachers and management are like ghouls in Vlad’s castle to little kids!
Please demand a return to the junior high/senior high model!
