100 day wonders are saving us money, not all people go to college so the 146th in the state test scores on act don't mean anything. We are at the bottom of the new standardized testing because all our students are the stupid offspring of welfare parents.

That is what I am hearing from the board, highly paid political hacks that don't have time for nothing but politics and ensuring their power base. Maintaining the generational control of the PCBOE through doling out political positions and intimidation. They are right in one regard. We are stupid for putting up with this bunch of political hacks and not putting board members in that will hire a super that really knows how to build a PCBOE for education and the students.

Look at the money they are wasting hiring those 100 to 185 day retired people that sit and do not one ounce of work. They don't even need them but they know someone so that creates a job. If you suck the right d$&k you are entitled to a good job after you retire. If you work 5 years after retiring that entitles you to 2 retirements....oh yeah. I could go on and on and write a book but you already know what's going on.......just saying my opinion.
You are a dumb POS.

I though tit rather humorous how they claimed the test scores weren't really truthful, and that a lot of the scores were the same as the rest if the State. Basically meaning when you have no defense attack the process, he!! anything that don't make you look incompetent, which is exactly what they are. The entire State was graded the same way we were, and by that process we appear to be stupid. It's in no way the fault of the children, or who parented them, all the blame rests with this bunch of F'n idiots at the board. I hope every single one loses their seat. If the people will send a message through their vote that this nonsense will not be tolerated, things will change for the better. Don't do your job at work and watch how fast they put you down the road, well the same thing needs done here.

Furthermore, if you think for one second they care about your child then you are mistaken. This same Board voted to limit the number of Students that could leave and go to the City Schools. A place where they can get a decent education. You can't even pay for them to go now. With every Student they let transfer that is that much more money they can't waste. Got to keep every one you can if you wanna keep driving hundred thousand dollar vehicles and keep hiring all those Family members that need comfy position where they get paid to do nothing. Well not exactly nothing, they have to get out and brag about how good a job you are doing. The old days of just blowing hot air are long gone. These new tests show exactly what kind of job you are doing, and judging from the latest scores, I'd say it is time to find another occupation. A person with any decency and morals would resign.

A couple of things to consider here. In the county system, if you fail a student, you are in trouble. You can't fail them, you have to pass them no matter what because that might interfere with money or the dropout rate. So with the great "Credit Recovery" system that they county has a student can have a 50%, do a couple of pages of work and get a 60%. THIS is a "ROGER WAGNER'S REGIME" policy-started under Wagner. Think about this, there are no consequences to the students. They may have scored bottom in the state, but even they know that "I don't have to do much to pass". What kind of message does that send to students and teachers? If you were a student with a 89% and your teacher wouldn't give you the A or let you do something to get the "A", but they would let Ricky from Island Creek turn in something to improve his grade by 10% how would you feel? Everything in our high schools is watered-down. Another example of why we are where we are. When you worry about money over academics you get Pike County's ranking. Also, Ralph Kilgore should be named in every bit of this, because the man would cut your throat over a dollar. He doesn't care about a school's needs, only how to slash the number of teachers in a school. I guess to hire another Instructional Supervisor. If you shake a tree at the central office, 5 Instructional Supervisors will fall out. The truth is the truth!

My question is this Wagner likes to hire under qualified teachers to teach your children. If teachers had the qualifications to teach our children's test scores would not be where they are. If the board of education gave drug test half the teachers at a certain school would not be teaching. If Wagner would fire all the family he has hired or friends of his there would be no school tomorrow. Everyone knows how crooked he is. Everyone knows how crooked all his fellow buddies is at the Board Thacker, Kilgore all of them. Start with change tomorrow when voting VOTE MAYNARD . Start there then work your way and get rid of all the crap in Board. It is a shame that our children are not being taught the way they should be taught. You have very few teachers that take pride in the work they do. You have very few teachers that would go above and beyond to help the student's. It starts at the board make it happen make change tomorrow. Call these schools and ask about the library and the head start see who is qualified it starts in head start and preschool. If a child makes it through out school. Head start and preschool gets the children ready to go into kindergarten. This is where you can tell if your child got the education they deserve. Preschool and head start just gets them prepared for kindergarten and then the kindergarten teachers take it from there. If your child was taught and taught right they should bring home a school bus colored yellow and not purple. Get out and vote Maynard. I urge you to vote Maynard make a difference.

I realize Romney voters are hoping he will drop this once great Country to being a third World Country, that he can finish off what Bush started, but some of us old die hards think there is still hope. Not all of us want third world wages so our families can starve, all while that one percent live it up. I got a feeling you won't like it much either when you can't walk the street without someone taking what little you do have. People won't starve, they will take what they have to have. Crime will skyrocket under Romney.

Nothing will change, Maynard is worse that Earl could ever be. I am afraid if Justin get in and Franky R controls him and CB from Phelps the BOE will really be screwed. I never seen this much back stabing for a 75 dollar job. JC....you have showed me colors I never though you had, Sicking

Shame on you...how long has it been since you walked around your room and helped a child? The first teacher/ political hack who needs to be fired is you! Think about it...how long has it been since you have "done your job"? Give me a break...I once heard you hadn't walked around your classroom in at least seven or eight years! TOO FUNNY!

lol last time i looked I did not have a dong. I have a purr. Your so funny . Tell you what he should do clean the house get rid of the teachers slacking on the job forget about giving any raises until they get the dead ass teachers out of there teaching that is so hateful they do not need around the kids. Get rid of these teachers that cry because they have to really work and do a job instead of handing out stupid papers to do . He should demand to put textbooks back in the childrens hands instead of the internet. Test scores do not lie every one is failing these kids. Its not just the teachers fault they have such little time to cramp all the have to knows in these kids heads before the big test is even given to them. He should demand that if the school board is only worried about testing do away with any home work or teaching anything just teach the test that is going to be given. SCHOOL SYSTEM IS A JOKE AND HAS BEEN FOR YEARS WELCH WAS NOT THIS DANG BAD.
