sorry for typos.
It should have read
In other words you agree with my post that if you agree with someones views, politics etc. you do not want personal attacks. If you disagree with a persons views, politics etc. attack attack attack. Usually it takes several posts before someone proves my hypocrisy claim..amazing how fast this happened.

Check with Don Miller. Maybe you can hire a reading comprehension tutor at the same place he goes to for speech.

"The students in this community deserve a safe, inviting and challenging learning environment. I intend to make sure that is provided regardless of the outcome of our current negotiations."
Springboro school officials plan to ensure that the district remains open, regardless of whether the Springboro Education Association files a 10-day strike notice, according to superintendent Todd Petrey in the May 30 Springboro Sun.
"Unless I am instructed otherwise...I will proceed with an agressive and proactive contingency plan to ensure that Springboro Schools remain open."
Now that the classifed union school employees have reached an agreement, we can feel confident that our children's best interest will be served with bus transportation, food services, and many other support services that make our children's classroom education safe and comfortable. Our classified union and our board are to be commended for all their hard work and extra time invested in the negotiations process doing what's good for our school children and community.

reminded folks "don't try this at home?"
#25466 Jun 29, 2013
So, why the deceit? Just say No to additional fire levy taxes and No to tax and spend lovers in local government leadership.
#25467 Jun 29, 2013
I guess I did forget to answer your fine question about the chicken or the egg. I was more concerned with "Why did the chicken cross the road? "
#25468 Jun 29, 2013

2000 plus kids are not getting the education the taxpayers are currently funding.
Too many teachers are spending time abrogating their teaching responsibilities for more trendy modes of education. If the children can learn watching videos presented by a teacher why do we need a high paid teacher in the classroom?
If group worksheets can help our children teach themselves why do we need a high paid teacher in the classroom?
If Hollywood movies that require 3 class periods can replace actual teacher instruction, why do we need high paid teachers in the classroom?
If we can go five years in the junior high with 80% of the kids failing the OAA basic math tests, how much worse would a certified temporary teacher be?
If we are really concerned about the children first, why did a junior high principal with 80% of her students failing basic math on the OAA tests for five years think reducing actual teacher instruction by 18 days per school year would help?( it didn't 80% still got a D or F on the OAA test)
2000 plus children are not getting the education the taxpayers are currently funding, why would anyone think paying more to the same people increase our children's learning
#25472 Jun 29, 2013
What people need and what they want may be very different. Teachers are those who educate the people to appreciate the things they need.
Since about 1983 when the State's collective bargaining laws gave teachers the right to walk out on our children's classroom education needs, only the Ohio Education Association "thinks paying more to the same people increases our children's learning." That's not true; Ohio has increased per student spending while test scores have remained flat. Neither is it true that smaller class sizes have proven to be effective in student performance. Some people get so entrenched in the old philosophy of status quo business as usual that it’s tough to get them to think whether or not something is going to help the kids.
That’s why a children’s first budget makes sense for teachers because investment is made in the tools and equipment necessary to help teachers do what they do best – teach our children. Children’s first budgeting provides all of the resources to educate children first, while investing in highly qualified staff at every level, striving for the highest standards of achievement and professionalism.
Children first budgeting works!

There is a lot being said of personal opinions "in the news" and "in the board meetings" about our reform minded board members leadership and our
school board's unanimous vote for our children's first budget. As "one voice-one vote" in our school district, I believe in our rights to voice oppossing views, but strongly believe we should keep a fair and balanced view in respect of one another, and celebrate together our successes that are due. Why not rally for our school children and community? Springboro is a great place to live, work, learn, and play sports!
RALLY FOR OUR CHILDREN!
Finding ways to methodically advance student achievement should always be everyone’s goal. Implementing academic reforms will, for example, reduce the present need for so many of our students needing to take college remediation courses. This, of course, will immediately translate into money saved for parents whose students attend Ohio’s colleges. And, in order to meet this challenge of higher academic quality, the current school Board of Education and District are, or already have plans to, invest heavily in technology, professional development for teachers, new textbooks, as well as new computers for every teacher, plus much more.
All this being said, there is a lot of work yet to be done to assure you (parents) that we will strive to do more than meet the minimum state requirements. The current Board of Education is dedicated to being advocates for every student striving to push the bar higher than other districts.
Some say there’s no need to change because our district achieved an “excellent with Distinction” rating for our most recent school year. But we live in a world that is dynamic, a world of ever-evolving expectations and realities that require our constant attention. What once was an acceptable level of achievement is now a relic of the past that will ill serve our children and our taxpayers in the future.
As parents, we all desire that our children be provided the best we can afford. We constantly challenge our children with the hope that doing so will help prepare them for the world and better lives than we ourselves enjoy. We are also highly cognizant of the importance of true learning and greatly value education and the promise of what it may bring.
Everyone in the school community has more in common than they have differences. Let us meld that commonality to push forth a better school system than we enjoy today. We owe it to our children. Let us come together to push for real achievement and higher standards that we currently demand.

If teachers at the junior high teach 7 minutes less per period to our children over the course of 175 teaching days that would amount to 1225 minutes per year.
O)r at regular 49 minute class periods, that would be 25 days of less teaching per year for out children.
25 days LESS instruction in core courses
5 weeks of LESS instruction in core courses
We still have 80% garnering no better than a D or F on the OAA tests each year, just like the previous four.
Apparently, 5 weeks less instruction time from our teachers did not harm our children.
Maybe we are as low as we can go.
Do the teachers and the junior high principal ( who for whatever reason was promoted ) appear to really care?
If they did care, would they have done anything different in the past five years other than reduce instruction time for the children?
