My name isn't Doug. But I am Happy! And smart enough to know that the the STATE taking over Springboro schools could never be as harmful to our children's future as this hostile Springboro Education Association take-over that we now see happening.<quoted text>
Doug, I hope you are happy. Now that you have completely smeared the education that is received at Springboro those on this site believe that the renewal levy is not needed and the students will be better served without the money.
Maybe if when you are smearing the Springboro education system you could at least include the rest of the state and identify the state's failed students. By comparison we are not that bad, furthermore, for what we are getting, we are paying far less for it. But then you would only want people to believe that Springboro is the only community with this problem - shame on you.
Maybe a reminder that a failed renewal levy would hurt every single child in the district (going against everything the BOE stands for) and would cause the school to be taken over by the state. Do you think that the state can do better? Does anyone on this site truly believe that the district can be sustained without the renewal levy? Ask any member of the BOE - they all believe a renewal is necessary!
Whether or not the renewal levy passes, it is just "kicking the can" down the road for two more years; and then we are right back with the threat of teachers strike, again, if we don't pass a new levy to increase teachers pay. No matter who wins, our children lose with this failed State plan of blackmailing for dollars, holding our parents hostage for increased pay for teachers.
