Guest Editorial: Toledo Public Schools needs dramatic overhaul

By Carty Finkbeiner

The Toledo Public School system needs a visionary overhaul, and the sooner, the better.

Where to begin? The University of Toledo has more than 1,000 trained educators on campus.

Dr. Jacobs and his team know what can and should be done to right the TPS ship. Please get started.

Second, the TPS Board has been ineffective in solving school problems the last few years. Now, it is critical that the board step up and work with renewed vigor and vision.

Finally, the teachers and administrators must join with the UT team and TPS board in drawing-up a brilliant model of how TPS can truly be a school system of merit.

The men and women tackling this mission should have very focused agenda: improving the learning opportunities of Toledo's children.

Yes, TPS needs a dramatic overhaul – and the sooner the better.
