This is McKeesport! Screw the laws. Break them, try to get away with it, and pay later.

You know what? GOOD FOR THEM!!! The administrators and school board officers don't care about laws. They try to enforce whatever they want, whenever they want-whether it is the right thing or not. I am soooooo tired of MASD thinking that they can and should get away with everything. This is just the start of MANY lawsuits to come down the line. It's about time their *ss*s be put to the fire!

It goes back a long ways. We never had so many problem children when we had a two parent household
& parents would simply beat their kid's asses if they got out of line. We can thank the liberal agenda that created 40 years of welfare that caters to dysfunctional families, kids = dollars,,
bad kids = SSI & the 'we will tell you how to raise your children' crap. This was all done for political gain & it was & is controlled by the Democrats & was the beginning of the Democratic party becoming the Socialist party that favors the masses for votes.

Don't fault me for telling the truth until you research it. Look at any city in this valley &
the monies rolling in to support the useless welfare breeders. The politicians are deep in bed with this, they make no attempt to aid the working class because it doesn't pay. They can sit on their dead asses, do nothing & claim credit when the free money rolls in.

Hey ass clown, dont make it sound like bad parenting is the property of liberals. My dad was a liberal and he was a disciplinarian. And a very hard worker. Bad parents come in all shapes and sizes. I could embarrass some people by listing the names of children of republicans who are on welfare, or living on HUD.

Most of the children who are in Auberlie are there because they were already in some kind of trouble. The school district is placing them in an alternative education program for that reason.

The kids should all enter MASD with the same opportunity. Nobody is born good or bad. To pigeon hole kids with the Auberle label is crap. Good suit!

A lot of Auberle kids are good kids with PARENTS that failed or lost them or passed on.

Know what you are talking about before you shoot your mouth of in public.

How true that is. It used to be that the kids in Auberle were dependent children who had crimes committed against them, and they were the victims. Auberle couldn't make any money to stay afloat that way, so they started taking the overflow of criminal kids from the inner city. Shuman Center is over-crowded so they send the overflow to Auberle and get reimbursed by the state because Shuman Center is overcrowded. They County don't want no problems like they have had is the past with the state, so they send them there. They should be seperate from the mainstream students. They are a negative influence. The school district is doing the right thing. That is another incident where the city lead by his lordship Brewster slipped them in under the cover of darkness and created a juvenile detention center without the public's or school district's knowledge. Actually, you have a another Shuman Center Detention Center right here in McKeesport!! Hats off to the school district for seperating them.

Shadow Hey ass clown,
==========
Who you talkin to, is your mother on here ?
Another moron that has to call names when someone dis-agrees with him. You need to read slower, I said it was the liberal agenda that has pushed & empowered this by telling parents how to raise their kids. Obviously you seem to have missed out on a few of those disciplinarians lessons in manners. What is an ass-clown anyway ? A left-wing
lib-socialist Dem. or what. Hug & Kisses !

My point is, a liberal agenda in government does not mold a person into a good parent, or a bad parent. No government could or should tell me how to raise my kids. Anyone who does not have a mind of their own, in my world, is an ass clown.

Children emulate their parents. Not politics.

What is a liberal agenda anyway? Please describe it to me in layman's terms.

Facts are facts. Like it or not the following facts are true:

(1)The McKeesport School District strives to do what is in the best interest for all of its students; this includes the students from the Auberle.
(2) The alternative ed classes at East End Academy are staffed by dedicated teachers who work tirelessly to help these kids reach their individual potential.
(3) The students are constantly evaluated, and only return to tradition class setting when they are ready.
(4) Both Auberle and MASD work as a team putting the best interests of each student first.
(5) Many of these students are unable to learn and progress in a traditional school setting; this leaves the alternative education program as the only hope for these students to someday becoming productive members of society.

This lawsuit is without merit.

hey, here's an idea - put them in a class taught by Battista - I'm sure her sex antics will get their attention and then they will become interested in going to school. she can teach them that is they get caught doing anything wrong or committing crimes they should just blame others for all their troubles and then sue the school board. and yinz are wondering where these kids are getting their bad influence from - THE CLASSROOM ITSELF!

You're entitled to that opinion, without doubt.
But please, enlighten us, what is the school board
doing that is beneficial to the taxpayers ?
Inquiring minds want to know.

We didn't vote them in to simply be controlled, mindless puppets to do the bidding of the local
political agenda. Doing that is a conflict of interest & breaks the little trust we may have had in them. They have in essence become nothing more than a board of political prostitutes. Not meant as a simple, lowly attack. Explain their behavior.

Um, Battista has been fired... HOWEVER, your cheating, family-destroying, bar hopping, golden couple have miraculously gotten away with their sexual escapades and are still teaching. Your idea would work with those two lying pieces of garbage just as well though, I suppose. poor kids don't have a chance in hell:(

I agree. They ALL should have been fired. None of them should have been rewarded with a buyout. Hell, the State Board of Education should have stepped in and stripped their credentials. The School Board, the Administration and the Teacher's Union sent our kids a clear message. Do what you want if you have friends in high places.
