This horrific murder was 100% preventable.
The state of the schools in the county is alarming, and it seems that the leadership has failed both students and teachers. Furthermore, there are suspicions that some of these individuals are benefiting from the decline of the schools and the county. Multiple lawsuits are expected to be filed against the county and these individuals, and justice needs to be served quickly for the sake of the students and teachers.
In the meantime, parents are advised to consider alternative education options such as homeschooling, church school, or private school, as the situation in the district is dire. The school board, with the exception of Jeff Church, must resign immediately as they have no place around children or teachers and are only making the situation worse.
The media’s lack of coverage of this issue is also concerning. Despite being included in all of Paul White’s Education Crusade press releases, the press has failed to address the issue properly, making them complicit in the matter.
It is time for action to be taken. All those involved must resign and face prosecution, and the claims made against these failed leaders in the attached document must be carefully examined.
As Nelson Mandela once said, “Safety and security don’t just happen, they are the result of collective consensus and public investment. We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear.”
Enough is enough. Justice must be served.

4) The School Board
The School Board has repeatedly violated their sworn and legally-established responsibility. They have ignored multiple written and spoken communications from parents and the community, begging them to intervene in dangerously escalating student violence and bullying threats, not only at the murder victim’s high school, but at numerous other WCSD schools. The School Board’s lack of action to address these bullying threats, and supporting a discipline policy that allows this type of criminal behavior, ENCOURAGED the charged perpetrators and allowed them to continue their activity leading to the victim’s murder.
The solution is simple, and could be implemented immediately.
1) Demand that the School Board IMMEDIATELY take a 7-0 vote to terminate Superintendent Susan Enfield’s contract. According to her own resume, she has NEVER been a principal of a single school and has NO experience with solving the dangerous issues threatening our children. Until the Superintendent is removed from her position, this out-of-control violence and lack of learning will continue to worsen. The Superintendent is a strong, public supporter of the current no-accountability discipline policy that encourages the violence that occurs daily in WCSD schools – the kind of violence that cost the victim her life.
- It’s the District’s fault. They do not check up on how principals are doing, or if the principals are holding others in authority accountable….
- We have so many students contemplating suicide….
- Fights are off the charts, like nothing I’ve ever witnessed. Our 6th graders were so innocent and unaware. Now they’re beating each other up all the time. Our principal has come up with dangerous and stupid consequences (that do not work). There is so MUCH wrong here, and it begins and ends with our principal.”
Let’s take action by speaking up and holding our leaders accountable for their failures. It’s time to stop glossing over the truth and start calling them out for what they are. Failures. Don’t be afraid to speak out and demand the change our community deserves. All these people have emails and phone numbers. Here are some emails to get you started. All these failures and blood are on their hands. May the justice system be swift and just, and if they’re guilty, lock’em up!
