LET Race influences school board
When will the Eyota community learn?
As a Dover-Eyota graduate, a former student member of the school board and a former community member, I find it upsetting, disappointing and absurd that race holds so much leeway over a school board decision.
How does one's past affect the way that person does a job? If Superintendent David Groth and a staff of custodians felt Walter Bush was good enough for the job, then chances are he probably was.
Bush was being judged by Groth for the merit of his character, but Eyota judged him on his skin, and the school board rejected Bush because of community pressure might have seemed like the right thing to do -- given Bush's past -- but the act was irresponsible.
