I find it interesting that the only people with this type of " inside" information is our good ole BOE. I think it is disgraceful that you are on this site typing inside information that is supposed to be talked about behind closed doors. Or it could be Petroni's BFF Wiedeman. We know personal stuff is talked about between those two. Can we trust this BOE? Can we trust them with decisions that have an impact on our child's education? Maybe we should start investigating you and your personal interest!!What "beloved" principal is holding the district hostage by threatening to create another incident if the district does not give him the same buyout that was offered two years ago? His contract ends this year--why would a buyout be needed? I thought he was all about what's best for the students, yet he is willing to take much needed money away from them.
Springborians - Who should go?

It is not difficult for this community as a whole to see that the union-supported former school board candidates are behind these silly schoolyard bully politics of personal destruction against the "children first budgeting" agenda of the winning 2011 board representatives.
One thing our community has learned is that long-time board member Don Miller will aggressively campaign against the reform minded board members in the self-interest of what the union wants, instead of in best interest of our students' needs.
Throughout 2012, Don Miller proved to the SEA that he could be trusted to vote AGAINST our children first best interests and for union first best interest. Another thing our community has learned about board member Don Miller, is that he remains stagnant in his status quo vision for our children's future, as the calendar pages turn year after year of his inept leadership.
Those of us who voted for Don Miller in the past two board elections had high hopes that during 2012 Don Miller would learn working together with the expertise of fellow board members Kelly Kohls, David Petroni, and Jim Rigano.
But here's Don Miller in 2013, same old protesting and whining against fellow board members, in support of politics of union grievance and resentment, just like in March 2012.
Sorry folks...it's time for that beloved has been a high school principal (who threw that 2012 community wide hissy fit, falsely accusing the new board of trying to push him out of his contract) to hold up his end of "a deal is a deal" and leave our school district active payroll without disrupting our students and community members.
Hopefully folks, Don Miller will be leaving his bully in chief on board position by our great American democratic process at the November 2013 polls.
May God Bless America! and May God Bless You!

I'm not a school board member.

I am not a pro union member by any means. In fact I am a conservative. What I have witnessed, as far as bullying, has come from the current board majority. It's okay to want change for the better, however, when you try to ram it down people's throats, it certainly engages people to ask why. As far as board members whining, were you not at the January 10th meeting? Mr. Petroni, took two specific opportunities to "whine" that evening. He started this whole conversion school business without doing his homework. He saw an opportunity and obviously did not think, because of his own background & business ties in which he chooses to publicize, that people might question his motives.
In addition, it is someone's own personal business where you decide to educate your children. Where I do take issue, is when you are an elected school district official, however you can't even enroll your own children in the district that elected you?
Combine all of these things with the whole "let's get rid of Dr. Malone" event. Gee...wonder why people are asking so many questions?

Last March 2012, the whole "let's get rid of Dr. Malone" event was whipped up by Dr. Malone's wife, calling community members falsely accusing the new board of "trying to get rid of her husband"..and encouraging everyone in the community to come out to the special executive board meeting (which was called out of order by the former board president) because the TV news had been asked to show up for taping the community wide protest (witch hunt?) against the three board members that the SEA/ Union Youth group of Springboro Babtist Church had pre-arranged. This fiasco then led to the high school auditorium production on March 27, 2012, when Don Millr and Scott Anderson led in the rallying cry of the SEA:
"Let's reinstate Ron Malone to business as usual status quo of union masters puppett; Let's throw out the Springboro 3 reform-minded elected officials."
Gee... no wonder community- wide taxpayers are asking questions about our tax dollars being used by the SEA/union activists creating a generation of students, who the political movement of teachers for their rights of greater empowerment; instead of our students' individual rights of greater achievement.
The mission of this school district is to produce good citizens and what is being shown (by example of post below) is the self-glorification of the SEA producing Youth Union community activists
for teacher union empowerment.

They are producing GREAT citizens. Sometimes others need to be reminded. Our government classes in no way instruct our children how to vote, but that they should vote. It is their constitutional right and as a citizen, they have very right to do so. My kids would even ask their teachers about certain issues, but were told they needed to research the facts and make their own decisions. My parents raised me the same way. So this bit about our District "producing youth union community activists", is completely false.
#107 Mar 12, 2013
We can all just hope that very soon our has been a high school principal for 12 years will pack up his box of donuts; allowing all those still high on the 2012 Save Ron Malone sugar buzz to just simmer down into the reality of no more status quo.
Through the eyes of TV cameras, just recently our finest Maney/Miller/Malone youth activists stepped up again to plead
save our teachers jobs for unions sakes FIRST; regardless of first best interest of students academic achievements.
Most of what these students said about the electives being deleted
was word for word straight off the blogs of bad babb for boro and the bitter bowman blogs.
Will that sermonizing military mom never stop her pitching orders to Springboro parents to defer to Springboro Teachers as the MOST influencial and important resource in our children's lives?
This is just typical of the SEA creepy cult-like projection into our homes by these SEA/Union youth activists and their parents.

No OEA Indoctrination
Should the White House control what your kids learn?

Editor's note: this piece is adapted from "Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities " (Sentinel HC August 2012).
The core of the hard-left’s education agenda – a program shared by Obama, Ayers, and Darling-Hammond alike – has three parts: 1) a politicized curriculum that promotes leftist notions of “social justice,” 2) reducing “disparate outcomes” between students in different districts by undercutting standards, and 3) a redistribution of suburban education funding to less-well-off urban schools. Achieving these goals on a broad scale requires the federal government to usurp local control of K-12 schooling.
