If you're not familiar with the battle between the Strongsville school board and their local teacher's union, as a resident of Springboro you are unfortunately familiar with their Tea Party tactics to attack teachers unions under the guise of "focusing on our children." The headline from Cleveland.com should sound familiar. "Strongsville school board publishes both contract proposals as March 4 teachers strike approaches." The article goes on to explain their tactics which are currently playing out in our community:

"After March 2 talks between negotiators for the teachers union and the Strongsville City Schools Board of Education ended with no agreement, both proposals have been made public ahead of a March 4 strike.

"The school district posted its final offer to its negotiation news website around 7 p.m., and what it said is the latest offer from the Strongsville Education Association later, which school board president David Frazee said would happen if no agreement was reached."

So how does this end? Will the residents of Springboro be able to defend public financing for our schools, or will the corporate agenda of the Tea Party to destroy public education and replace our school system with for-profit institutions become a reality in our community? If Strongsville is any indication, the deep pockets of out-of-state financiers are destined to win in the end.

According to a recent article published on Cleveland.com , the "Eight-week Strongsville teachers strike is over; school board unanimously approves new contract." Just imagine the following story playing out in Springboro:

"The five-member Strongsville school board met at 9 this morning and unanimously approved an agreement to end the eight-week strike by teachers. News of the board's decision came just three minutes after the meeting began.

"School Board President David Frazee said after the vote that students and replacement teachers will be given a chance to say goodbye, though classes are cancelled for Monday... "œIt was eight grueling weeks," Frazee also said after the meeting. "Now we want to do all we can to bring our school district and community back together."

Support for the BOE in Strongsville came from all angles. Yes, some of this support came from the Tea Party. But a tremendous amount of support also came from conservative Strongsville parents and many other concerned conservatives who live and vote in that community. You can bet the ranch that if here in Springboro push comes to shove, the cream will rise to the top as what occured in Strongsville.

It's ludacris to claim the position against the OEA in Strongsville was fueled primarily by the Tea Party. The majority of that district's parents and businesspersons were NOT in support of the OEA's list of demands. This combined force played a key part in helping to determine the ultimate outcome.

As in Strongsville, there are plenty of closet conservatives here in the Boro who normally tend not to speak out, but likely will, if these negotiations move from push to shove.

For the sake of our children's futures and the future of our republic; we can only hope that Charter Schools and other for profit institutions of learning become the norm. These horrible government schools are destroying this country and the Federal Department of Education should be the first to go. The government has NO business in the business of education. If you have a child in a government school; shame on you! Enroll them in a private school so they receive an education instead of an indoctrination.

There's no doubt man...the CAVE people (Citizens Against Virtually Everything) are never going to support a strong community school. They're only interested in the charter options that will profit them and their tea-bagger friends.

Stand strong, Springboro teachers. These radical right wing Jihad-tea-party-terrorists cannot be allowed to destroy the very fabric of our community!!

When you begin your rant with a LIE, the rest of what you say may be a LIE, too.

The Tea Party is merely a non-partisan grassroots organization of ordinary mainstream Americans who are INFORMED and fed up with out-of-control government spending. That's IT.

So, by your lies and smear directed at the Tea Party, we can only assume that you SUPPORT out-of-control government taxing and spending. You support record-breaking deficits. You support raising the debt limit over and over. And you support mortgaging the futures of our children, our grandchildren. and our great-grandchildren.

The left are the most hateful and spiteful people on the planet. The Tea Party has nothing whatsoever to do with this issue. But the hateful left want to demonize the Tea Party, so they lyingly pretend the group is at the root of all things anti-left.

To the left, lies are merely a legitimate tool to use in pushing their ideology.

The NEA is one of the most left wing unions in the country. They've turned the public schools into little more than left wing indoctrination factories.

Naturally, the leftists will squeal like stuck pigs at any proposal that chips away at their access to our children. They've worked for decades to gain complete control...and they don't want to lose any of it.

PARENTS: if you want your kids to receive the best possible education minus the left wing indoctrinating and brainwashing - what the unions call "molding young minds - then strongly support charter schools. It's for the children.

What the hell do you have to do with the issue, Arizona? That's the whole problem were dealing with, that a minority of residents were empowered by the National Tea Party to impact our local elections. And now we're having to fight them every time they propose their bibles in school, in the constitution, guns, God, seriously! Where do you get off telling me this has nothing to do with the Tea Party?

The idea that any wing nut can ride the Tea Party Train to local offices should concern all of us, but this is a local issue that residents should decide what's best for themselves, and not have to fight the influence of outside money on our local politics.

I agree with you for once. Our local voters have took control of this issue and elected the people we want to run our community schools. The more we can keep the influence of Federal Government money out the better off we will be.

Because those people have more reflective and rational thought put into a sentence than your average delusional and paranoid Occupier. Check your tin foil hat for leaks.

Ask those in our community who reap $60,000 + in labor money from unions, union lawyers, and union friendly donors that are three to four states away from here to run unopposed.

You CANNOT compare the situation in Springboro to Strongsville.

Per Pupil Spending:
Strongsville -$11,142
Springboro -$7,812

Base Salary:
Strongsville - 38,361
Springboro - 34,653

Main BOE Goals in Contract Negotiations:
Strongsville - Stop 9.3% STRS pickup for ALL employees and increase base pay 9.3% to compensate.
Springboro - Keep base pay the same levels from 2007-2008 school year for an infinite amount of time until they can set up an arbitrary pay system based on unknown factors to be decided later (we have to pass it to know what's in it, right?)

Who is being hired for $34,653? Even at that rate for a new teacher fresh from college, that amounts to $29.54/hour with your 14% taxpayer funded retirement rolled into the equation.

$29.54/hour

Cry me a river you have to work for such a pittance when you first get out of college.

You forgot the 14% mandatory contribution teachers have to contribute to their retirement as well. Guess what happens if they happen to die? Their estate gets what they contributed only. That 14% the district puts in gets absorbed by the STRS. If you invest in a company matching 401K, that money your employer puts in is immediately and permanently yours.

Now about the $29.54 an hour. You know what the great thing about working on a salary is? Overtime is free! I've never met a teacher who simply works while at school during the school day. Also, it's common place that when a teacher talks about what it takes to be a teacher you all tell them that's what they chose to be so quit complaining that it's a lot of work. It's as two-way street. You chose not to be a teacher so quit complaining on how easy you think it is to be a teacher.

I've never said teachers were underpaid, but they're by no meals overpaid. What do you think they're worth?
