We are losing too many of our students to IDEA or neighboring schools because of the academic scores being so low, Herrera said before calling district facilities into question, more notably 6A Weslaco East outgrowing its 3A confines. Their band hall was built with a maximum capacity of 90 students, and we have 165 students in there, Herrera urged. These matters need to be addressed with more than a bond issue, which the people voted down for a reason. Of particular concern to Rojelio Roy Ramirez, the Place 1 hopeful better known as Kello, is spending. They spend the money on other things instead of our teachers, said Ramirez, a 71-year-old retired Weslaco High teacher of 30 years. I know more or less what they need, and teachers need books for students to take home for homework. Right now, they tell them (teachers) to make copies but have to buy their own paper. The school doesnt supply any supplies anymore, and the teacher dress code is one of my pet peeves.” A veteran of the U.S. Army whos served in Vietnam, Operation Desert Storm and in 10-year stints with the Texas National Guard and Army Reserves, Ramirez said hes no stranger to the discipline of duty and seeks to use his experiences to better the district. For instance, he points to what he believes are biased hiring procedures. Basically, I dont like the way they treat our teachers, and the way they hire and fire is compadrismo, Ramirez said. My priorities, as far as the school district itself, it has to be the students first, the teachers and staff second, parents come third, fourth is the community and fifth the last is administration.
