    The KCCC is being reactive instead of proactive – however, the ‘blame’ can only be placed on the voters and residents who are so apathetic they vote for the most recognizable name vs. doing their research and voting for the candidate best suited to help our schools – our community is only as strong as those who choose to vote – either because they “recognize” a name on the ballot, or because they’ve researched the candidate’s histories and voting records – unfortunately, only 1/3 of our community gets their butts out of bed to vote – and even less vote intelligently – we’re getting what we “deserve” as a community as a whole

    Thanks for publishing this information.  Both of my children were in Mr.”J’s” class at the Career Center of 2 years each.  My son went on to Kent State for a degree in Construction Management.  His Career Center experience has been extremely beneficial to him both at Kent and now in the work place.  He has also joined the Navy Reserve SeaBee’s. Mr. “J” was also a great encouiragement to both my childer.  The Knox County Career Center should “sell” the benefits of the program to increase enrollement, not discontinue it.
