Evenings and weekends at the teachers house?? You must be a fireman!! What a hose job !! You don't have many of those kind of teachers in STJ!!
Why do you think they want "family " and other teachers on the board !!!

Hey, look, ladies and gentlemen: another teacher basher!! I know that in your factory or warehouse job you probably have to punch the time clock, and when you punch out, your job is over for the day. Teachers, however, work at home, too. At all hours. And on weekends. It's just part of the responsibility of planning and prepping. I've been doing it for 19 years & I continue to do it. Try not to speak of what you don't know.

Hey, Dumbo...look around you.. Not all are as you say you are. Many get there just before the bell goes off and are fighting to get out as soon as the bus leaves . If some were doing all the school work they say they are doing... They certainly wouldn't be on here!! Arrogance is not a becoming quality.. If it weren't for the factory and warehouse workers who helped build this country, people like you wouldn't have a job! Many of your kind only teach for 2 reasons.. And neither is their love of children so get over your pompous arrogant self!

Oh, I get it... Anyone can bash a teacher, but nobody can say anything about other "professions".... Jealousy, jealousy, jealousy.... That'scwhat it all boils down to. Besides, when did say anything derogatory about the warehouse & factory workers? All I said is that they punch a time clock.

Jealousy??!! Get over yourself.! I think the quote says.." Those who can't do, teach...those who can't teach, teach gym...,and those who can't teach were sent to our school" thank you Annie Hall and Woody Allen!
I am not a teacher basher, but that is the easiest out for "teachers" like you!
Now back to the original topic...the school board. Good luck to the candidates. May you remember it is all about the kids and may you consider finding administrators from outside the area who would also put the children first. Fresh outlooks and experience outside this tiny arena may be just what the communities need.

Money can't buy you love or caring for children, but it sure can land a cushy job with tenure............

This post should be called the jealousy thread
You don't like the teachers the potential board members or the administration. Get a degree and teach or some guts and run for the board or shutup.

It may be difficult to find someone who isnt friend or family or parent of someone " in the school " Those are the people who usually are involved and want the best for the kids instead of someone who wines and complains about whats going on this forum. By the way its "their kids" not there.

Good bye, I disagree. If the board members were just looking out for their kids they wouldn't have pushed this merger. Obviously, they were looking out for the district. They are well educated individuals and they have my vote. Candidates with a good educated and a level head are who we should be electing to this new board.

I agree.Dumbo,your name really fits you.You sound like a spoiled brat and probably are.Do something about it if you dont like it and run for the board yourself.There is no pay though,so you probably won't!

I do agree with you "fed up" but one more thing.I hope that the board members that are elected,will remember,to think for themselves, and do the right thing.Don't listen to the guy next to you and agree with him,if you don't.This is a big part of the problem.You get one or two that voice their opinions,and the rest follow.This has to stop.They each have a voice,I hope they all use them.Good luck to all.

What kinds of decisions do you think they really make in favor of their kids (or any kids, for that matter)? They prepare budgets, and rubber stamp appointments, and not much else. Ask former board members who ran because they felt they could "make a difference"- they found out quickly that they can't really make ANY difference. They have very little power and/or influence over anything. Like I said earlier, they basically prepare budgets.

How can any of sitting board members ask for your vote? We have a secret scandal paying people thousands of dollars a week for people to sit home! How the hell long is this going to go on. Then they will sue the district and we will pay more, either over Att. Fees or settlement. Did any of them think whatever happened in this scandal should have been addressed when their contracts were given.

Another idiotic comment. It doesn't matter who is on the school board in this situation. They can't do anything more than they've already done because of the legal rights of the employees involved and until State Ed does their part. You O-E types who are still hung up over losing the merger vote will try to make up anything, holy crap.
