Supe’s Corner: Schools must build background knowledge

In my "Letter from the Superintendent" (CN, Aug. 15, 2010), I suggested that when all is said and done, instruction itself has the largest influence on achievement.

So many memories of great times come to mind to share with everyone. I was born in Porterdale Oct. 28, 1942. I share this birthday with my twin sister Jane Bowen Scoggins.
