Do you believe the JISD board asked for too large of a bond in the last bond election? Why or why not?

Yes. When making decisions on issues such as the last school bond election, everyone in the community should be taken into consideration, not a select few.

What are your feelings about implementing a form of standardized dress within the district?

I think we should try the standardized dress to see if there will be any positive changes in our schools. The dress codes that we have now are not being enforced very well.

Do you believe proper and enough measures are being taken from a discipline standpoint? Why or why not?

I strongly believe that discipline begins at home, and it should continue on into our schools. It has gotten to the point that there is no discipline in so many of our homes, and this non-discipline is carried into our schools. The children have no respect for themselves or the teachers. If there is no discipline, there is no respect. If there is no respect, there won’t be any learning.

Do you feel the recent findings of inappropriate materials being shown in the classroom were handled appropriately? Why or why not?

Yes. The teachers should have been dismissed from their jobs immediately, no questions asked. Films or any other types of material with sexual content should never, ever be allowed in our classrooms.

What is your opinion of the 2000 land purchase of 33 acres, of which the Texas Education Agency recently completed an investigation? Did the district pay too much, or was the land worth the price?

I think the district did pay too much for the land.
