<quoted text>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.
Yep...can't just gang up onone of 'em. I've witnessed A LOT with this group since I was a fellow patron at a few of their old stomping grounds. I know they were all ask not to come back to a certain bar because of their conduct. All I can say is thank Jesus above that MY babies won't taught by these perverts. And hopefully they will instill better morals in their children then were obviously instilled in them. Now, I don't know if these Hippocrates are church-goers, but they just might wanna put a little extra emphasis on a couple of the commandments when teaching those babies. You know, The ones about lying, cheating, stealing, coveting neighbors' wives (and smiling in their faces.) Oh, and the one about committing adultery. That's a biggie! Lol. Ask around. More people than you would think know about their dirty past. ALL of their dirty pasts. Not just one... It'll all come out in the wash. Trust me:)

But please, enlighten us, what is the school board
doing that is beneficial to the taxpayers ?
Inquiring minds want to know.
They have an $85 million MASD stimulus program funded the local complacent fools, aka taxpayers.

A third school is not needed. The AE, PPM and out of town contractors are laughing all the way to their Swiss Bank.

I hope that the wash is done before the November Election. The one actor in this horrible scandal should NEVER hold the position of Mayor!

Its not the kids, its the teachers. Theyre to scared to shut them up, then the kids take advantage. I attend the school and id gladly record our classes for proof, but id be suspended. The students need more aggressive teachers like the bc teacher. Otherwise the students will not learn, and will cause trouble.

Here's how much you people don't know. A majority of the kids in Auberle are there under CYF provisions. Not because Shulman is overcrowded. Shulman isn't the only program for troubled teens. There's George Jr Republic Mars Group home. Mel Blount Youth home Pressley Ridge etc. Aunerle youth are kids that are taken out of their home due to neglect, abuse, deceased family etc. You people have NO idea how the system works for youths because you live in rich houses and your kids are probably spoiled. A lot of these kids didn't ask to be put in the situation they're in, it just happened. Every kid deserves a chance just like anyone else.

Don't get me started on these crimonals!!! There are actually kids who have committed MURDER in your HS!!! They are all Criminals at Auberle, some of them VERY VIOLENT. a Close friend of mine used to work there.. and he talked all the time about having to kick their behinds... literally. The last thing these Dreggs of society deserve is a 2nd chance. Give them the chair now.. save the rest of us a ton of money later.

Wondering -- are all the youth at Auberle MCKEESPORT youth ?(ie someone is paying school taxes to support them?)

And it is true that many of the kids at AUberle have been in serious trouble....not all...but many....

While I'm sure this doesn't include all the troubled youth there , How many really are the product of the welfare system & the socialist -liberal attitude of simply throwing money at the problem ? For example - welfare parents sacrificing their children to failure so they can suck up some of dat 'gub'mint mad-money' or SSI . Don't totally blame the players (parents)- blame the officials that enslave the working class to tl allow this cradle to grave entitlement .

Agree with you, to a point.

Keep in mind , though, that teachers are held to a double standard......parents want their little angels educated but they do NOT want the teachers enforcing rules. The minute a teacher tries to make an example of some little bastard causing trouble in class, the parents blame the TEACHER or the school for the kid being that way.

You cannot expect teachers to work miracles with no tools.

The Vast Majority of them are NOT local kids. They are all criminals in the system where places lie Shuman do not have any more room. Most of them are inner city gang kids. That is why Holtzman does not want his daughter going to school at the Port
