Real Bottom Line

Auburn, MA

#1 Oct 6, 2010
The real bottom line is that overall, NM went down in its MCAS scores and that three schools did not make yearly adequate progress needing to develop a plan to meet deficiencies. You can spin it anyway you want, but the numbers don't lie.They think people will believe whatever they tell them. doe.mass.edu/mcas/performance
Maybe that's there idea of progress.

This is a direct view of the failure of the current administration and the SC. However, when you read the story it is the books. Let's go on that one if the books are inadequate then new ones should be bought now where do they get the money Hmmmmm maybe they could have used the money that they used to look at the merger that was not going to happen or the money to give Marshall and her bunch new offices in a closed school that could be used for classes. She is taking the district down and needs to be relieved of duty and all of the SC replaced with parents who want their kids to succeed. She has not put the cuts in the budget this year and is a liar. She has put many local residents out of a job and nobody questions her. In a regular business if you have a problem with a vendor you work it out not here if you tick them off they just get rid of you. If this was a business it would be in bankruptcy or out of business. Maybe we could recall the SC and fire the superintendant. It would be no loss and you could liken it to flushing the toilet to get rid of the crap.

I can imagine that Quabbin is doing good since MM has taken some of the teachers from NM she has to look good somewhere it certainly is not here. In fact I think that she is trying get out of dodge by pushing the merger, it is her way of leaving before getting fired. In a nut shell the definition of Major Embarassment is Maureen Marshall and the NMRSD School committee.
