To understand the problem, you must first accept that the MASD and City and McKeesport political machine are one in the same. Their mission is to continue to control votes and dictate to their constituents and ensure election of endorsed candidates.
I think the cover up and the bungling of the firing or Ms. D. reversed by the Pa Appeals Court is just one case in point.
The cover up of several others involved in the Cornell School scandal is the second point.
The firing of Coach Smith is a third. The firing of Mr. South is another.
A MASD employee was publicly chastised by the State Ethics Commission for having adult oriented material on his computer but nothing was done by the MASD School Board. Like Collins he was rewarded with generous merit monetary increases since then. But, Ms. D. was illegally fired.
To get to the my POINT, the machine and it puppets would never let any parent be lectured, warned, fined, and otherwise legally punished. This could jeopardize machine votes. THE IS BECASUE THE MACHINE DOES EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING TO ENSURE VOTES TO KEEP THEM IN POWER at the expense of our students who by the force of law should be required to attend school.
If a parent is legally punished the machine would lose votes. This is what it is all about. Similar to fixing a traffic citation to entice a vote.
The common thread is the teacher's union and teamsters' local death grip on elected City and MASD school officials. They vote with the union position, and in return the union supports their candidacy.
This is cycle that most likely will never be interrupted by the ballot box. So live with the shame and negativity this brings to the MASD and City and hope your child is a serious student who attends classes.
Remember the teachers and principles can not do their job if the students are NOT IN SCHOOL. It all starts in the with the parent or parents getting their child or children off to school or pay the legal consequences.
But in my opinion, the MASD will not enforce the school code for political reasons as suggested by the machine. Votes first - students second!
Great post . Truthful & to the point . Especially since this Boro has become Section 8 & Welfare oriented. I'm still surprised by the 'educated' teachers blind loyality to a union that is purely political in nature. These educated teachers with degrees are constantly being used as political fodder .(ex: layoffs, cutbacks, etc.) Meanwhile, all the deadwood, assistants to assistants with no formal education who just happened to gain employment thru ' RELATIVE ABILITY' just keep on working . C'mon teachers - wise up . You're being used. Blame the union that is deep in bed with the skool bored & MDC . Stop being owned !

I think you are the idiot, misinformed, and indebted to the teachers' union or MDC.

WL is an astute and keen thinker. WL did not get caught being a lookout for two teachers fornicating on MASD property. If you cannot be a successful lookout how can you succeed at teaching?

Keep up the good and very informative work WL.

Good bye -- you may now leave the kitchen. The thermal elevation exceeds your intellectual and heat resistance attributes.

But, WL is total heat resistant -- like the space vehicle heat shield.
