Three members of the Department of Defense visited South Heights Elementary in Henderson on Wednesday. They were in town to get new ideas from South Heights for schools across the country.
"The building doesn't make education. It's what you do inside that building. You can teach anywhere. I mean, we can do it wherever we need to do it. We don't have to have new schools, but some of our schools are in very poor condition, so we're building new schools. So, we want to make it right because they'll be around for a long time," Curtis told 14 News.
Curtis says the Department of Defense schools closest to Henderson are at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. She tells 14 News the department has been talking with South Heights about forming a partnership with Fort Campbell to share teaching methods on a regular basis.
