Chamber gives thumbs-down on Amendment 3

Southeast Missourian

Along with many local school districts and organizations, the Jackson Area Chamber of Commerce has come out against Amendment 3, the proposed revision to the state Constitution that would tie teacher evaluations to student performance.  The Cape Girardeau Area Chamber of Commerce is not taking a stance. Vice president Tim Arbeiter says the amendment wasn’t something they were asked to take a position on, and it normally takes several months to consider one. It has taken stands on issues that directly affect businesses such as minimum wage and a smoking ban. The proposed amendment also would limit future teaching contracts to three years. Teach Great, the organization initially supporting the amendment, stopped campaigning for it. Jackson chamber executive director Brian Gerau said the chamber is approached to handle different amendment issues. If something affects the community or businesses, the chamber takes a stand for it, against it or no position. The chamber board discussed the importance of maintaining a strong school system in Jackson as a tool for city growth and economic development.

In the profile, the Princeton Review editors describe Southeast’s program as providing a “top-notch education at an affordable price” and providing “an excellent bang for your buck” while not skimping on the quality of education.
