Mr. Pickering's Article In The Monadnock Ledger-Transcript
ConVal High School Principal Brian Pickering contributed to a feature page in the August 12 edition of the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript entitled "The Future of Education." Here's a brief portion from the article: "With all the important investments we have made, none will be more important than supporting a competitive teacher contract. Our facilities, technology and programs are all important, but what the research continues to tell us is that nothing is more effective in helping students learn than great teachers. Our district has those great teachers and when the time comes to recruit new and talented ones, we need to prioritize this upcoming contract above all else." Read the complete article here (bottom of p. 7 and p. 8).
