At their last meeting, the Eastern Pulaski School Board members discussed eliminating Driver’s Education from the curriculum. During last week’s meeting, Superintendent, Dr. Robert Klitzman, shared the results of a Driver’s Education survey he conducted with 26 participating schools.
“13 of the 26 offered it only in the summer and it is strictly a fee assessed to the students that take it. No Corporation money is involved at all,” Dr. Klitzman explained. “12 other schools don’t offer it at all. There’s a private contractor involved. There is only one lone school that offers it during the school year for absolutely no cost to the student and that happens to be Eastern Pulaski Schools. I’m not going to recommend we do anything for this coming school year, but for the following school year, I just don’t see how we can offer Driver’s Training during the year any longer. The way finances are and the trend, it’s just not a practical matter.”
