Letter to the Editor: Natchitoches Parish School system needs some work
I wanted to write this article in reference to the Natchitoches Parish School System. I have friends and family who are teachers and I have children who attend school at a Natchitoches Parish School. (I am remaining anonymous to protect them from any problems.) I attended Natchitoches Parish Schools and I always loved it. I have many great memories of friends and teachers throughout the years. There are teachers that if I see today, I am instantly joyous and pleased to see them because of the positive impact that they had on my life. That all being said, know that I am writing this from a point of concern. I am writing this from a sense of obligation I have from conversations that I have been involved in. Put simply: the Natchitoches Parish School system needs some work.
