Harwinton and Burlington residents sent a strong message to Superintendant Paula Schwartz yesterday, No Blank Checks here! Several resident have had direct personal attacks from Superintendant Schwartz's draconian management style. Her rampit spending and trips such as the one she took to China will not be tolarated in this rural community. Did you know that on several occasions Schwartz actually threatened parents with arrests if they set foot on school grounds because they disagreed with her actions? Some of these actions were decisions that could of resulted in students getting hurt in after school activities!! Voters of Harwinton and Burlington need to wake-up and use their eyes and ears to see what is going on in our Board of Ed! We need a Superintendant who embraces the community, who feels parents are important and does not have a Power Complex!! Schwartz must go!!!

This is a very globalized statement by JTP - more information should be provided to back up the allegations in JTP's post. If you want the community to have full knowledge - then don't hold back the facts!

Globalized statements do nothing but to build a quick burning fire - but one that has not fuel to sustain it.
