It says a lot when Eastpointe no longer has "School of Choice". They got rid of this program, closed schools that they did not have enough kids (from Eastpinte) for and are going forward. My close friend who has children in the Eastpointe School System could not be happier!

Thank that rubber stamp Frederick for voting for school of choice when he was on the school board with Putney and all the rest of the midgets.

RAINFOREST: "I DON'T HAVE NO AGENDA" & "INTER CITY OF DETROIT"
Apparently you are in a position to judge educational quality...
(In case you're too stupid to realize it, "don't...no" is a double negative and incorrect and "inter city" is incorrect, it's "inner city.")
On another note, you don't HAVE TO CAPITALIZE EVERYTHING. We can understand your misspelled nonsense without it.

I understand that African Americans do live in Macomb County and believe they have every right to go to any school in their county. The problem I have with South Lake is they do not do residency checks. If they say they do, they are lying to you. It is up to the principal of the school to do the check. Now tell me...when do they have the time. Unbelievable!
South Lake has forgotten about the kids and has made the board office to big with big salaries. Let's cut the fat people and remember the kids. Hopefully Mrs. Balint can do a better job than Thompson did! I am sick and tired of my tax dollars not being spent properly and that is why I voted no on the millege.

I would like to say Thank You to all my fellow South Lake residents. I got a chance review the 14 year tax increase proposal results. EVERY voting precinct voted NO. This was a stronger message. Now South Lake School Board do not waste our time with a third attempt, live within your means.

If this school board wishes to ask again for a millage increase ask one of four people for the money. Ron Frederick, Putney, Marino, or Crouchman these are the greedy ones who need their heads examined. Just remember folks out of these four there are only two remaining one has resigned so he says and the other well her husband didn't do to well at the polls this time either, so don't forget her name at the polls next time around Paula Mack Crouchman. Thank You!

Remember when you vote in November that Frederick supports school of choice. I have not a problem with anyone going to a SCS school but you need to be a resident. I am done with supporting schools for kids that do not even reside here. It is ridiculous. THANK YOU LAKEVIEW for over charging us and then not giving it back to next year. If residents did not question it I am sure that you would just have kept that money!

The times they are a changin'.
Schools of Choice is a law but is there a limit to certain number of kids
that can enroll from outside the district.I am ignorant to this.Does the
number of "schools of choice kids " depend on when the school reaches capacity?Getting the facts what district do you live in?
Vote responsible school boards South Lakers. Our city depends on you
The Insider doesn't know this
I find it interesting that some of the pro S.O.C folks who are commenting live in Grand Rapids, New Baltimore. They are not the ones to see proberty value go down, MEAP score go down. People are scared, the only thing they know is Detroit school suck and they are scared that the BAD will follow. Tell me where there is a good black school system that works. People are leaving Detroit because they ruined it, so do you want them in your school district.

It appears that what we are really dealing with here is keeping St. Clair Shores white. Schools of Choice is being used as code for "black."
Apparently those who write on this forum do not realize that the percentage increase in African Americans living in Macomb County has risen by 144% in recent years.
The comments on this forum are reminiscent of the deep south in the 1950s and embarrassing to read. There seems to be a reluctance to believe that African American families live in St. Clair Shores, Eastpointe, the Grosse Pointes, and everywhere else.
Instead of looking at this as an opportunity to teach our children how to live and work in a diverse world, we would like to hold on to an all white majority St. Clair Shores. How sad.
Grosse Pointe North High School is now 20% African American--that is after all the reenrolling! What this clearly means is that the African American families live in the community.
As to residency requirements, all South Lake families must produce 4 pieces of identification tying them to the property which they claim for residence. Further, new families receive residency checks at their homes.
Schools of Choice is an initiative of the Engler administration. All Macomb County schools except one in the far north of the county are Schools of Choice districts.
Is this the reason the High Scool has failed? Last testing scores have the High School failing, and thus why there is a new principal. I would have rather had it shut down.

Also noticed this quote from when Ron was being considered for an appointment to the City Council in January 2005:
"McFadyen voices her support for Frederick, citing his years on the Ypsilanti City Council and current position as a trustee on the South Lake School Board."
Anyone know anything about this?
What is all this about Ron in Ypsilanti?

Give the teachers and administrators more money, at least twenty grand more each. After all its about the children. They are our future. What about the children ? Lets make the teachers and administrators millionaires that way they can teach the children better after all isn't it about the children ? The more money you pay the teachers the better they teach. It's simple arithmetic and A "True Fact". Just ask the teachers union president

People that are complaining about school choice are looking for a scapegoat for all the things they perceive as being wrong about South Lake. Color is definately a part of people's opinion. Let's not forget that it was white cheerleaders in St. Clair Shores that threatened freshman girls with urine and chlorine bleach filled balloons..yes, those nice, little white girls cheering on the team....
