"Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds<quoted text>
So, just because the penalty for their actions might result in a "slap on the wrist", means that is license for the BOE to conduct themselves that is counter to state law? That's logical.
And yes, to answer your question, seems to me that teachers and administrators are leaving the district in droves. Better get ready to buy a ribbon....
to be." - Abraham Lincoln
The Springboro community of voters saw the TRUTH in Kelly Kohls'
winning agenda for our school children and their classroom teachers years ago, when voters overwhelmingly elected her as school board representative. Kelly's leadership has opened up the doors of our taxpayer-funded community schools, and invited participation of all community members, allowing the voice of all citizens to be engaged in our children's education! Exciting things are happening in our school district and everyone should join the celebration! Difficult challenges and curriculum review are in the spotlight currently, and everyone should join in the discussions and speak up for our kids! Still, we see some who choose to promote Ron Malone’s philosophy that “
our school tax dollars should be used to emphasis the value of the educator.“
(Hopefully, the hostility of the political opposition taking advantage of this open discussion to “try to run some parents off their board” will continue cooling.
Then will come the calm after the storm and the Victory for our school community and community as a whole to engage in more civil discourse than we are now subjected to in the public board meetings). Life is Good! And good leaders, including Kelly Kohls,
Who challenge and inspire parents and community members, year after year, to get out of their comfort zone and get engaged in their civic responsibility attending these long public meetings are certainly to be commended. Thanks, Kelly!
Kelly Kohls is the first elected official in Springboro, when she came on board in 2010, to encourage the other four board members to "listen to the taxpayers!" This was unheard of in the board room, when previous business as usual elected officials, ruled 4-1 as majority good old boys, fighting against taxpayers for status quo while leaving our children's classroom needs unmet; while keeping the "emphasis on the educator" and budgeting First for increased salaries and benefits/compensation packages.
Throughout the years, in spite of false accusations and mean-spirited verbal attacks
Launched by those who rally vote for revenge against her, Kelly has stayed to the task of doing what's right, always in a respectful and professional manner. Her challenge to our parents and school district taxpayers to stay engaged in our children’s education, goes far beyond her expertise in protecting our school tax dollars for our children's future. Kelly Kohls stands up for our kids and challenges our state and local leaders to stand up for our kids, lifting up their minds to truly be all that they can be! Springboro is not a cookie-cutter type of school; neither our students; and one size fits all is not a good “fit” for
Our Children First!
So why shouldn’t school employees, who are overwhelmed by the challenge of Springboro taxpayers challenge to “give more to our kids and get less for you” not seek less demanding jobs, as a matter of personal choice? Why should school board members be blamed for school employees, who are unhappy with their jobs, exercising their “right to work” outside the doors of our safe and comfortable working conditions in our Springboro Schools?. Why should we not celebrate opportunities for new employees to find happiness in a new job working in Springboro?
