All of these "elected" school board members are so misguided.

Emilie Lonardi should pay for the program herself, it's less than a week pay for her I'm sure she wouldn't miss the money.

This problem was brought to their attention months ago,how do you put a price on the DRUG problem at West York.Our board President is a puppet to our leader.Mr Gettys has a relative that was "framed" give me a break,this was not his first run in with the law for drugs,his mother hid it from the rest of the family so it would not give them a black eye.This school district is a joke and the tax payers better wake up and stop bitching to each other and start bitching to the board.

I am sorry that you had problems in the sixth grade at Trimmer but there was never a teacher there by the name of Brad Gosnell so maybe you should be careful when relating this story so as not to accuse the wrong person.

You probably needed your a$$ beat then, and maybe more now. Glad there were teachers around in those days who had the b@lls to keep order in the classroom. Today these teachers have no idea how to deal with the disruptive students who are ruining it for those who want to learn. There were some misfit teachers at Trimmer back in the day, like those two dykes who lived together, and that nut case Burger who I suspect was a flamer too, and smoked like a chimney, but overall they had a good staff.
Teachers have no idea??? How about teachers get no support from parents anymore. If any teacher today were to do anything even resembling the actions of this supposed Mr. Gosnell they wouldn't have a job for very long. Parents would crucify him. I am in no way condoning his behavior, but I once had a parent come and pick his kid up and take him out to lunch because I took away his lunch recess for fighting. Nice message you're sending your kid, Pops. I have had parents tell me I am "no longer allowed to punish their kid." THAT' s what parents of disruptive kids do today.

I am a former student of West York. I went to Trimmer Elementary School. I had a teacher named Mr. Gosnell for Science. He constantly bullied me and made me feel like I was worthless. He made fun of my looks, my height and had the class participate in making fun of me. I was to ashamed and embarrassed to tell anyone. For sixth grade we went to Camp Canadian. When we were there I asked Mr. Gosnell why we could not have gum, and he went ballistic, grabbed me by the arms and started shaking me violently and screaming at me telling me not to question his authority. He did this spectacle in front of everyone there and everyone stopped in their tracks and was watching. I was traumatized. I cried the whole time..wrote my parents and told them to please come get me, but did not have the courage to tell them why. I want everyone to know what BRAD GOSNELL did to me. I am betting very few people have forgotten that incident because I wanted to die that day. It was 20 years ago and I still remember how scared I felt that day. I hope someone from the West York Area School District reads this and makes sure that this never ever happens to anyone else
Man, those names bring up some memories. I remember when Mr. G. drew a circle on the board and I had to stick my nose in the circle while holding up dictionaries outstretched in each hand. But, i got over it! Mr Waybright had an awesome "Board of Education" paddle...never messed with him. Good old, Mr. Berger.....we used to call him yellow-teeth....didn't mess with him either. All of the teachers were strict back in the day, but that is just how it was. Visit a school today and see what students get away with without being fearful of a strict teacher. If you are still harboring ill-effects from 6th grade, you may want to seek professional help.

My son is constantly bullied in school. I know 6th grade I tough but come on parents teach ur kids right n wrong to every child including disabled children. My son has been called retard everyday, piece of shit, go eat a woman's rotten ass, queer go fuck ur self. At lunch this sane kid pushed my son over as he was picking up books, stomped on his balls, punched him in rib n in the back of head...I have been to school 3 times they told me if Robert my son defends himself he will get automatically 10 day suspension. Well its getting to the point I had to go file a policed report.GOT NOTHING. That kid didn't even get suspended for all he did to my kid.
