I don't see anything wrong with him sending his children to Cathoic school. If I could afford it I would send mine as well. Think about how hard it would be on his children to attend public school in the city their father is mayor of. It opens them up to bullying from other kids and possible special treatment from teachers.

It has nothing to do with their father being mayor. It's because he thinks his kids are too good for public school, even in a city where the schools are supposed to be sooooooo amazing. PLEASE!

So he has enough common sense not to send his kids to the public screwels. I give him credit for that. When there is an elected school committee, the mayor has nothing to do with the schools. If I were him, I'd try to send the kids to Mystic Valley.

How do people arrive at that conclusion, that he doesn't believe in our school system?

So when they get old enough they should go to community college and not Ivy League so people won't conclude he doesn't believe in the state?

How about when the school commitee members send their children to private school. What does that tell you?

It has everything to do with their father being mayor. My kids should not be subjected to the politics in the city when they are just trying to get an education. Do Obama's children go to D.C. public? I think not.

Here are the problems with the Everett public schools number 1 problem MCAS!!!! MCAS IS NOW THE BASIS of education here in Everett! The ENTIRE curriculum is based around MCAS & it's testing! They have omitted any & every "free time" to dedicate to MCAS no more handwriting, 15 minute lunches (which includes recess) forget about fieldtrips (Even educational ones) Number 2) OVERCROWDED! When the classroom has an average of 27+ kids in each how does 1 teacher handle the entire class if several of the kids get rowdy? 3) language barrier!!! How do they expect children who do not speak, read, or write English to perform in school, let alone MCAS testing? Because these children score poorly, it brings the entire schools score down, which resulted in every school except The Madeline English to fail the no child left behind act!

Mystic Valley? You people are so clueless. Mystic Valley dosent even require their teachers to be certified in the subject they teach or to have a master's degree. But that's not what this is about. Everett's slogan is about the PUBLIC SCHOOLS! What a crock! What don't you understand here?

Ok, so there isn't access to extra help in the Everett Public Schools? If a student is struggling with grades or is being subjected to bullying, there are no resources in these schools Everett has so much "pride" in? I hope the school committee and FF see this. Again..Everett's schools are Everett's pride? Clearly not.

Mystic Valley is a very highly rated charter public school. Charter schools are public schools. The superintendent of the Everett public schools has twice been fined for violations by the state ethics committee and has admitted to sufficient facts for a guilty finding on a charge of receiving stolen property.
Those master degree programs for teachers are as phony and worthless as Quinn Bill degrees are for cops.

Charter schools are public schools but the teachers are not certified. Do you want your children going there? I don't. I'm not sure if any college would even consider a charter school up to par when it comes to acceptance.

Check out the MCAS scores. What about the extensive waiting lists to get in? Talk to some of the parents. Check out the colleges that are accepting their graduates.

Really have you checked into this ? About 95 percent of MVRCS seniors are & were excepted into great schools most with full boats ! Tuffs , Boston college , northeastern , mass school of pharmacy & even Harvard check your statics ! Further more some of these colleges have even offered monthly allowances just for coming ? I think our acceptance rates are right where they should be & colleges have sought out these kids for academics not football !

Absolutely the charter schools are fantastic !!! Compare their MCAS scores with any city - not just Everett !!! I like the idea of their uniforms too -- no T shirts with slang on them, no thigh-high (or above) tight skirts for the girls....No torn jeans either. These parents are parents that are invested in their childrens' education....So check out their MCAS test scores. Of course colleges are accepting students from the charter schools - excellent colleges I might add.

Us subjects send our kids to the state provided, federally regulated "free" schools (that we pay dearly for with our taxes),
while the leadership overwhelmingly chooses private, not state provided schools for their own children.

Nothing to see here folks,
