What important question did this questionnaire fail to ask, and how would you answer it?

The most important question involves the most important people involved in our children’s education.  I would ask any potential Board member, what will you do to help the teachers?  My answer is continuing to work towards providing an environment where teachers are happy, rewarded and challenged.  We need to do a better job recruiting new talent and holding on to them when they are here.  We have lost several supervisors over the last few years and it concerns me greatly.  I do not want Metuchen being seen as the training ground for districts with deeper pockets to steal our talent from.  I want us to be a place teachers want to come work and spend their entire career.  We can do better.
