Does anyone still wonder why the city's schools are a mess?? All of these slackers should be kicked off the board and return all of the pay they got for doing nothing.

The Rochester City School District is both a pathetic joke and a disgrace.

Our city’s public schools are among the worst in the state, if not THE worst!

We have low math and verbal scores. We have a high drop-out rate. We have a low graduation rate. Even those who somehow graduate from our city schools, fifty percent of those who go onto Monroe Community College need to take remedial reading and writing courses.

In short, many of those students lucky enough to graduate aren’t prepared to take their places either in the job market or in higher education.

Then, there’s truancy.

City residents have long suspected that there was a high truancy rate among Rochester’s students. In August, 2012, Dr. Bolgen Vargas, Rochester’s Superintendent of Schools, made a shocking admission: probably up to 50% of city students are truant on any given day!

I bet the same low information voters that voted for Obama vote this same school bord in term after term.

Key words "low information voters"
