Wouldn't it be great if OSBA/OSBLC was added to the public school's list of potential "controversial issues" for social studies current event discussions?<quoted text>
Well said! Kelly is doing an excellent job with OSBLC and she needs all of our full support in her important role there.
The Ohio School Board Association (OSBA) is an old, outdated bureaucracy made up of almost exclusively liberal educators. Much of this group's unwritten (but sometimes whispered) agenda is about indoctrinating Ohio's school children with as much revisionist-history cirriculum as they can possibly push through the pipe. Just call OSBA and press them for the answers. They'll tell you. The OSBA dislikes the concept of transparency in contact information for school board members for public contact, because they don't believe school board members ought to be directly accountable to the general public,(who, of course, voted them in.)
OSBA believes all school board members ought to be yes-men and yes-women to administrators, teachers and teacher's unions. Of course anyone with common sense knows this isn't the correct way to do things in a democratic society such as the United States. But then again, we are talking about LIBERAL educators, aren't we!?!
After being elected, Kelly Kohls very quickly figured out OSBA's nut and shell game. She refused to participate in it. Kohls then proceeded to help organize OSBLC which is quite serious about addressing the many pertinent issues facing today's public education.
I suggest everyone talk to neighbors, friends and family from other Ohio school district boards of education which may currently subscribe to OSBA's backward philosophy. Ask them to contact their respective boards of education in order to discuss the viability of OSBA vs. OSBLC, thus helping to ensure a future of higher accountability and greater transparancy in our Ohio public schools!!
If our school community of pro-levy lovers (including our boro alumni and our youth union activists) were educated to the financial advantages to our children's future with our successful children's first budget, then we wouldn't have all this undermining of SURE hostile Springboro parents and irresponsible educators carrying on against our community as a whole, with these silly "teachers are victims" protests and disruptions in the orderly business public school board meetings, verbally attacking Springboro taxpayers who are generously financially supporting our school employees, and have been doing so for many years, in a most excellent manner. Where's the respect from the SEA toward their EMPLOYERS, the school district taxpayers?
