The Morning Sun: Officials mixed about changes to education policy 01/14/05, 14 Jan 2005 [cached]
The biggest concern for Gary Snawder, superintendent of Girard USD 248, is that the test-taking will take away from creative teaching, therefore causing faculty and students to suffer.
"In theory, I support it (Bush's plan) wholeheartedly," Snawder said."My inner feelings are that we are going to have to be real careful because you can only push so far with the staff we have and with the number of students we have until people start saying, 'hey, I can't reach this and I want to do something different, I wanna drop out of school, or I don't want to be working as a teacher anymore'."
Snawder, who has been an educator for more than 30 years, said he has seen a lot of good teachers come and go.But now, more and more teachers towards the end of their careers are saying, 'I don't need this, I can retire and I'm burned out because of all the requirements'.
Additionally Snawder is worried that No Child Left Behind is putting a lot of pressure on preparing kids for college, but not for the workforce.
"I don't know what the percentage is, but I would probably say 25 percent of our students actually complete a college degree within 10 years," Snawder said."Well what are we doing for the rest of those students?If we put in all those extra requirements, extra math and extra language arts and fine arts, we are missing a lot of students and there are a lot of technical careers out there that we need a lot of people to fill those jobs.
"Sometimes I am afraid all this testing is going to force kids to maybe not finish high school, and that concerns me greatly," Snawder added.

Gary Snawder, superintendent of Girard USD 248, said, "I've been kind of cautious and reserved.
Snawder said the Supreme Court ruling will probably get schools through the beginning of the school year and at least into the next legislative session, which will start in January.
He has started working on the 2004-05 budget, and is a bit worried about raising costs and static income.
Gas prices, for example, continue to rise dramatically, and Snawder points out that affects everything coming into the building, from milk to paper to teachers, who have to pay more at the pump to get to work.
"We've still got to take care of our children and our staff," he said.
