I came to this blog looking for help, advise or suggestions on what to do with the issues of the children losing out and all I see are racist comments by a bigot. I grew up in Whitehall, graduated from Dieruff, I have one child who graduated from Wm Allen with a 3.5 grade point average (taking all honors and AP classes and now in college) and my last child at Trexler. To blame the failure of a school district on a particular race is just sad and pointless. Seems like you like to see your prejudice rants in print. I feel sorry for you. You would think that with all your superiority upbringing and better living conditions you have in Emmaus, you would have more constructive words for people in need.

It isn't in fashion to claim any of your relatives were in politics for many years . Start the sequester , no guts for the POTUS or any to start . Highest paid Governor in the US and the most corrupt state government and poitical hack jobs . The schools are a product of union , teachers ,politicians, education leaders grabbing the money first and leaving learning behind . Race , thugs , drugs . It's everywhere ,like Santa Claus.

RULES have changed since his Time...WHY is it..THAT the teachers are the FIRST to be LAYED OFF??...WHY aren't the Congressman... removed from their seats every four years, as the President Of America??... EVERYONE, is cutting back, laying off folks to employ newbies at a lower wage.. WHY does EDUCATION.. have to be the FIRST on the Chopping Block??
Start with the biggest tax you pay and come down through your state, county, city, borough, municipality or wherever you live . More than generous pensions were given out to the point that salaries and pensions leave little room for anything else . Government grants help a little but they usually go to pay the same as above . Teachers are the only ones that come close to making a product rather than milking one .

Times have changed and cuts have to be made somewhere . So far no one can agree on where the cuts will be made . Cuts hurt politicians . Free stuff helps them.

Pennsylvania comes in 2nd to highest paid State workers . Automatic pay increases tied to the rate of inflation ? Nice , we never had deflation .

It doesn't matter if Corbett doesn't get a second term . We still get to pay his and all the legislators that go to jail or get voted out of office . Which reminds me , there is a list of offences that would take away your pension . If Sandusky can still collect his in jail I don't know of any that would.

It's hard to learn from your mistakes when you can't admit to them. I will post the links again since you forgot what you did.

Raise their taxes like they do in the burbs. How much could it hurt? Most homes in the Allentown slums are worth a hundred bucks.

So they'll pay five bucks a year instead of three, no biggie

LMAO! I wouldn't live nor own a piece of getto land. If I would actually want to own a piece of crap from "in town" all I'd need is a couple hundred bucks.

Tax those blighted crap hole houses to accomodate those who use the Allentown school district. Which, btw, is a major joke in its self.

So before you go off ASSUMING Silly Rabbit. Remember trix are for the working girls of 7th street.
