It's time for Mr. Malone to wake up to the fact that what is currently going on in the school district is the big multi-million dollar business of educating our Students; and the taxpayers in this community are "stock holders" INVESTING in the education business. Does Wow Wow Wow think that supporters of the MSA campaign are now going to "stop the current 21st century quality classroom education that is now successfully "going on?"You always assume it was a popularity contest. I strongly disagree. It was a vote against what is currently going on.
It is agreed that the election of Mr. Anderson, Mr. Malone, and Mr. Stuckey was a "vote against" what is currently going on with the progress made in the past two years by our Children's First Budgeting reform minded BOE members Vision for our children's 21st century classroom education.
Mr. Malone told the public in a May 2013 Springboro Life magazine interview that he felt the current board's major focus was on the physical elements of education; and that he felt the re-emphasis should be put on the Educator. Springboro families and taxpaying homeowners support the direction in which our school district is
now "going in" and will stand up for kids in the boardroom to make sure that our new board members "get on board" with what's going on in our Students First classroom education.
Now that Mr. Malone is an elected BOE official, he works for the
community of taxpayers, accountable to the needs of both the school community and the community of taxpayers, and he just might find out that the job is much more demanding than being building principal managing the Principals fund, greeting students with a smile, and keeping Mr. Maney and his staff happy.
While there may be great differences in personality, leadership style, and expertise among the Five men of our new board,
the common thread shared by all must be the priority of RAISING THE BAR FOR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS, and working together with
students, parents, staff, and community members.
It will be a challenging year; but there is great optimism and confidence that Mr. Anderson, Mr. Malone, and Mr. Stuckey can
be taught to FIT into our school district's reform-minded vision for our children's future. We can just invest in status quo!
