As I casually read the tidbit of the "free" Current, I could not believe my eyes. I had to call for my wife, Elizabeth, because I thought I was going to have the big cardiac on that day! Mary, Mary, quite contrary (the black lady) where are your petition gathering skils when they truly needed?
The Board had the audacity of approving a multi-thousand dollar renovation to Mack Laxson field again?? Synthetic grass??? And no caring citizen objected or even commeted on this site a bou it??
Ask yourselves, how is this renovation going to pull PISD out of the Academic Warning status? How is this going to improve the quality of edcating our kids??
Couldn't those thousands of dollars have been spent on curriculum materials, tutoring hours, extra teachers, improved technology in the class to help the poor students into jumping the hurdles they need to get a good education?
How dare the citizens of PISD take the abusive power the board is exercsing. Of course, the "football program will instill good self confidence in students" b s will be used if anyone dares to ask or challenge the board. Where are the baptist church union members on the world that question and challenge all big spending ticket items and challenge anything that might improve the quality of life for the poor mexicans? Maybe they are too busy fighting Immigration Reform!
What a slap on the face to taxpayers! Mary, I expect to see WOAI out there showing your "new" petition in hand. Oh, I forgot, you work for some board members. Then assign your co-captian Ms. hide the application to do your dirty work.

Warning is intended to those "grammar hogs" that correct everyone's posts; the above is not intended to be grammatically correct. Its sole purpose is to convey my thoughts in a message to the taxpayers of PISD. So don't response with, " you should have written..." I think the grammar queen, Linda, died several years ago.

I, personally, would rather have a better looking field than corrupt politicians out there. It isn't that big of a deal.

Sure you would rather hhsve a under rated school district and poor learning Students. You probably want those students to clean your f****king house. Crooked politicians? Are you referring to those at the county,city or school? Because for many years the "leaders" would make their on rules,arrest whomever they wanted, change voting results,, etc. Maybe you have not lived inPearssall long.

I totally agree with you. There has only been one or two postings about this issue. No one seems to care!!!! By the way, Linda is still alive and probably will come on here to correct our grammar.

I have gone by each Pearsall ISD campus and have not seen a work being done at any of them.
Why? They don't care what our campuses look like!!! Maybe the new superintendent will do something about it.

Did anyone besides me notice the number of uniforms the Maverick baseball team had this year? I went to several of the games, and they were wearing a different uniform several times. Yet, the teachers are having to buy their own printing paper. They buy their own paint to beautify their classrooms just to be moved to another classroom where they have to buy more paint.

2014 scores have been posted on the Texas Education Agency, and they look really bad, but hey, let fix up the football field. Heard Dr. Garza gave Mr. Lindemann a green light. If the money is there, use it. It takes weeks or months for a teacher's PO to get approved, but it only takes a few minutes for a coach's PO to be in his/her hand. Hell, sometimes, they get the credit card.

It's not that we don't care. We have voiced our concerns to school board members and the supers. They pretend to care and then nothing! It's a big joke! Improving sports and such when we have such a low preforming football team. I'm fed up with it.Things won't change. Let's put the blame where it belongs.Think about the "supers" have come and gone as well as some school board members.So who is/are the ones left. Garza and Louisa. It has to be them.
And as far as the "grammar hog/s" I don't care if it's not perfect. It's not that I don't know better. it's that I don't want to slow down,I will loose my train of thought.Good Luck to PISD we sure as hell are going to need it.

I agree with you, academics come first but the boys uniforms were paid through the sponsors that pay for their banners to be put up on the field and athletic boosters. None of the money comes from academic budget.

That might be true, but I know teachers are told there is no money, yet, money was found for improving the baseball field. I know of teaching position being cut to save money, but they are spending thousands of dollars on the football field. The money used on the football field should have been used to reduce class size specially in the lower grades so that teachers can reach more of the kids. This way the students can be better prepared for the next grade. The district needs more teachers to help with the students with special needs. I guess the classroom teachers need to get sponsors. This would really be a great shame, because I know the district is not hurting for money. Just go visit the district's main office and see for yourself the number of employees there. When cuts are made, it's in the teaching positions. Then with the money saved, they hire someone at the main office with a higher pay that the teachers they let go. We need a recall of the school board members. We need to clean house in the main office. Well, I could go on and on with this.

Well All I have to say to this is what is keeping "YOU" From starting a petition to recall school board members??? Why wait on someone else..You be the leader not a follower stand up and do something about it!!!! It seems like you have a SERIOUS ISSUE with the school board...instead of criticizing someone else for standing up to the corruption in city hall, why not start your own????

I have issues wih the way the kids are being shortchanged in their learning. Unlike you, I am not going our calling the out of town media to slander and disparage a human being, regardless of background, because only the Lord has the job to judge someone. YOU, in turn chose to make a three ring circus out of something that should have been taken care of in council chambers. And YOU professed to be so concerned abou the "well being" of the community that decided to divide the community for your or your bosses' own agenda. Are you advocating then that much needed money inthe district should be spent on "artificial turf" whileteachers go without technology, supplies and curriculum materials and are frownd upon for asking for one,$4 ream of paper?
The only issu I have is that the priority in the districtcontinues to be athlletcs INSTEAD of getting out of the accrediation condition, and since YOU did such a good jobin collecting signatures for the petition (according to the stupid people that followed you) then I ask why YOU are not looking at that disgrace as a REAL issue that should concern the parents and employers in PISD.
If educating children in public schools is not of graveconcern to you, I feel sorry for the communityas a whole. They will probably be so impressed that the losing Mavericks are playing on "artifical turf" and a better stadium than a junior college.

Mary had her own agenda to win but in everyones eyes she is a big loser she is a disgrace. she stirred up the bs in this town. and now she's eating crow. I agree the schools do you need to get a better rating from the state. You have to remember the schools are 99% is state funded, so if you don't make the grades you don't get the grants. Let the people run the City the way it's always been run by concerned citizens and leave the BS behind ,this is what cost in the city money. The so-called big change is nothing but BS there never was a change. It was just people's own opinions on what should be done. they couldn't even do the petitions the right way, then we really should listen to them. and now their head is between their legs, because they are embarrassed for what they have done. Mary Moore looked like she had Parkinson's her head was shaking back and forth she looks like a bobble head. well I guess it's back to the drawing board Mary see what else you can come up with. Maybe you should be talking to intelligent people. Your evil ways bit you in the butt. You lied to half of the people that signed your petition. Wow you're such a Christian.

Why couldn't the 9.5% you state above go to maintenance of the instructional buildings? Have you seen the 2014 STAAR test results?
