Funding from Title 1 helps Lindley flourish: N&R

From a letter to the editor in today’s News & Record:

Funding from Title 1 helps Lindley flourish

I am writing in response to the April 19 article, “Four schools may lose subsidies.”

As the parent of two Lindley Elementary School students, I have seen firsthand the effectiveness of the Title 1 program. Title 1 funding has allowed Lindley students to flourish in a strong, supportive learning environment with excellent teachers and staff. Low student-teacher ratios encourage learning across a student population that is diverse both economically and culturally.

Test scores have improved significantly in recent, successive years. Lindley was named one of Guilford County’s “Most Improved Schools” in 2006. Reducing funding now would defeat the purpose of the Title 1 program, slow student progress and possibly lower test scores.
With further funding, Lindley students can continue to thrive academically.
