Am I confused? Of course, my wife and kids and probably most of my friends would tell you that’s my normal state of mind.

I didn’t have the space at that time to fully comment that efforts to raise confidence in Gilbert Public Schools are well underway.

Gilbert Public Schools recently filled four open administrative positions ahead of the 2014-15 school year.
“We lived in Gilbert for over 20 years and all five of our children attended Gilbert schools. I was always impressed by the teachers and faculty of the various schools. Gilbert had a reputation for having some of the best schools and administrators in the state of Arizona. It is so sad to see what has been happening! The current Gilbert school board members (especially the current president) need to remember that their first priority and responsibility is to provide the best schools for the children/young people of Gilbert, and NOT their personal or political views!”
