ex teacher

no one is disputing the fact that sex in the classroom between two teachers was a terrible act.
It's the way it was handled why fire one teacher with 12 years of senority and give her NO bonus and NOT fire the other ,he takes his retirement and the school board awards him a 50K bonus???
NOTE:
teachers dont get a 50K ,or any other amount of money to retire. This is why they retire, they have their union pensions and if they contributed to their 401K they can take from that fund at 59 1/2 years old.

I dont know what was said at the hearing,but it convinced the court to award Ms D 8 years back pay and a her teaching job back at mckeesport it that what she wants....public opinion means NOTHING as far as should she teach children or have her named cleared or nail her to the cross, cause none of us were there,we dont know the whole story,but it clearly was discrimination.
what dont you understand?

Oh we finally agree...thank you. it was a terrible act. Look I don't know about the legalities of someone taking a pension but wasn't the $50k in lieu of getting his health benefits from retirement? I Thought that's what I read. If they just gave him $50k to retire I would agree in that case it stinks...I think public opinion does mean something and if you have younger children in this district you can't say that and mean it. I'm born and raised here, college graduate, raising 5 children in this district because it someplace very special. It's a unique, diverse, and wonderful community for children. Wonderful schools and teachers, great libraries, awesome tutoring and mentoring programs, soccer, wrestling, baseball, basketball and yes football programs. And before you start screaming about sports in MASD remember that when taught by a coach who's there for the kids, it instills discipline. Yes there are problems in our community but I prefer to be part of the solution. Instead of badmouthing the mayor, his wife, the former mayor, the MASD, the union, the MDC, the DA, did I forget anyone hope not, why don't you try to see what parents are seeing? Just stop already.

this has gotten off topic. this is supposed to be about how well the Tigers will do this year because of all the talent developed and left for Smith by Ward.

there should be a topic to discuss how parents of the ghetto town Mckeesport can improve the grades in your school and how so many are skipping school for no reason at all. keep burying your head in the sand

whats the school board going to do?

Congratulations to the Tigers, Coaching Staff, players, and parents for another victory.

The egg continues to accumulate on the faces of those MASD board members who fired Coach Smith.

The other coach was a jackass, several people went to talk to him but he walked away. All he did was stand around the school looking mean and ignoring parents. 25-0 Tigers with Smith. School board is corrupt.

Smith coached now professional football NFL players.

School directors and athletic director and the Daily News who all trumped up Ward's hiring and said Smith "quit" now all look like asses. I have no respect for any of them anymore. Way to go Coach Smith! Keep rubbing this season in their faces. Karma is a bitch!!!

Btw...how many think Ward would be undefeated at this point in the season? We would be lucky to have a winning record considering his history.

Tiger town is clueless. All adults have worked very well together regardless of the past. No sour grapes from anyone. Everyone is happy for the kids.
Much Hope 4 the Port

You are spot on. The most damage and negativity subtlety heaped on our beloved Tigers and City was imposed, perhaps unknowingly, by local news media bias and neglect to report important and truthful MASD and City going ons.

News censoring and cleansing by the narcissistic one self proclaimed to be more popular that our LORD has slowly destroyed this community and it is spreading like a dreaded cancer.

The only cures are State AG Kane fashioned indictments. The more indictments that follow, the more pure the Port can become.

Significant progress was made when the feds indicted or implicated the deceased late and former MASD superintendent who crafted the Cornell School sex scandal cover up. The city is still suffering from the fall out from this despicable conspiracy.

In spite of all these regrettable and nefarious matters, I believe the plunge of the Port and MASD can be stopped, mitigated, or reversed. State AG Kathy Kane and the State Police are the coach and quarterback on this one and they are winning the game hands down IMO.

We got to wait until the game enters the 4th quarter of jury trials.
