If Malone in fact made these mistakes knowingly, I believe it's very important for each and every district parent, voter and 18-year-old voting seniors to each have fair opportunity to separately discern Malone's current "insane" level of popularity...The HSTW reports and the WCESC reports prove to parents that Mr. Malone wasted school tax dollars by refusing to take advantage of opportunities for growth and change, once these were brought to his attention. Mr. Malone's mistakes were applauded by local, state, and national recognition, building up his reputation of being too insanely popular to be questioned of his failures in meeting the needs of his students best interest.
Moving forward, parents are now asking: What good for our student's future education can come from what is learned about these past years of harmful illusions of excellent with distinction? What improvements do our current state standards offer and how can we hold local school leaders accountable? If kids aren't getting the quality education that taxpayers are so generously funding, why is the former high school principal campaigning for school board election to gain control of the children's first budget, so that the re-emphasis on the increased dollar value of the union teacher in every classroom, can be re-instated?
vs. that of Malone's overall level of accountability during his 13 year tenure as principal of Springboro High School.
