LIBERTY - A group of concerned citizens came before the Casey County Board of Education Monday night concerning the lack of a full-time algebra teacher at the high school.
The school has been without a math teacher since the beginning of the fall semester.
"I care, I'm interested, and I'm concerned with the other parents," said Lee Murphy, spokesman for the group. He said the substitute teacher was not doing the job.
He said the school had a good algebra teacher, until she took a position elsewhere. He expressed concern about the students getting behind in the class and how they will score on college entrance tests.
"If they get behind this year, they will be behind in years to come," said Murphy. He said 50 percent of the SAT test is math. He asked the school board to do something about hiring another teacher soon.
