So glad that my son will not be attending Craig middle school. While I do believe the teachers and staff do the best they can with what the resources available, it is abundantly clear that the school could do better/be better. The county needs to do something to ensure that its students are educated to compete in a global economy or really just compete at any level. The standards are low and the students suffer. I am not sure what the county receives in terms of state funding but it is evident that the county and the state need to step up their game in Moffat county and inparticular with Craig middle school.
