During the last decade all around the state of Ohio, there have been increasing numbers of public school districts rated as "Excellent" or Excellent w/ Distinction. During the same period, remedial rates for college freshmen statewide have steadily crept upward statewide. Basic fundamental knowledge of math, science and social studies has deteriorated across the board in virtually every district to a point that a number of veteran university professors around the nation have come forth and said they no longer in general consider public education to be adequate in terms of preparing students to enter college.

State test results show after 8 years in our district's educational system, only 32% of our children were able to score 75% or better on Ohio Achievement Assessment math tests.

In the direction of being repetitive (which seems to be what happens here):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Tripol ...
The 1796 Treaty with Tripoli states that the United States was "not in any sense founded on the Christian religion" (see the image on the right). This was not an idle statement meant to satisfy muslims-- they believed it and meant it. This treaty was written under the presidency of George Washington and signed under the presidency of John Adams.
Who were the Founding Fathers? American historian Richard B. Morris, in his 1973 book Seven Who Shaped Our Destiny: The Founding Fathers as Revolutionaries, identified the following seven figures as the "key" Founding Fathers:
John Adams
Benjamin Franklin
Alexander Hamilton
John Jay
Thomas Jefferson
James Madison
George Washington
Of these, only John Jay can be considered an orthodox Christian. As Congress's Secretary for Foreign Affairs, he argued (unsuccessfully) for a prohibition forbidding Catholics from holding office. On October 12, 1816, Jay wrote, "Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest, of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers." It is John Jay that the modern Christians have in mind when they talk about the Founding Fathers. Luckily for the rest of us, and all freedom-loving Americans, he was not in the majority.

Based on the True History of a Man who has been SHS principal for the PAST thirteen year, Ron Malone, through official documents
written by third party observers....

Mr. Malone ran this high school like a union shop, making up classes with scant demand to ensure employment for those whose skills were not in demand. This tactic ROBBED RESOURCES from areas of greater need in the district. Those who suffered the most were the gifted and those in need of early intervention.

Truer words were never spoken:

Look At the PAST....

"D" grade on Gifted Intervention AND

"C" grade on the lowest 20% in achievement from State.

.... in the local newspaper dated November 14, 2013, board member-elect, Ron Malone, sound
delusional as he states one of his goals while
working on the board is "to make sure students'
educational needs are met, such as special needs and advanced students, in a way that is fiscally responsible."

Excuse Me, Mr. Malone, but you were offered opportunity to use your professional educational abilities to affect change, raising the bar for all students and TEACHERS in our school district
last March, 2012! And in protest of "doing MORE
for our all our students and TEACHERS" did YOU not throw a community wide temper tantrum, leading our students into the high school auditorium to PROTEST the authority of the Board of Education members to "OFFER YOU THIS OPPORTUNITY?"

Shame on you, Ron Malone! Now, you are boasting in the local newspaper that YOU have control of the THREE voices in the board room, come January 2014, and that YOU are grateful to the "community"
that they have trust in "himself, Anderson and Stuckey, who ran on the same platform."

Shame on you, Ron Malone! Based on your TRUE HISTORY of "performance" as the former principal
of Springboro High School, YOU threw away the TRUST, Moral Authority, and Influence that you held in OUR community... when you "ridiculed" the
Board of Education members last March 2012....
for respecting YOUR 41 years of PAST educational experience and trusting that YOU would accept the challenge of UTILIZING YOUR ABILITY to affect needed changes to raise the bar above YOUR status quo "business as usual" leadership skills...

Shame on you, Ron Malone! Based on TRUE HISTORY,
you CHOSE to throw away the TRUST that our Board of Education members (and your own Professional Peers) and YOU refused to "stand up for OUR students first" and then launched a bitter, mean-spirited VOTE FOR REVENGE campaign against our Students' first best interest and Board of Education's authority to do what's right for our schools and community.

NOW, as board member-elect, Malone said in the local newspaper that the "board" should not micro-manage Staff, but provide "guidance."

Shame on you, Ron Malone, for REFUSING to accept the GUIDANCE from your professional superiors and our elected Board of Education members, whose responsibility to the TAXPAYERS is to PROVIDE guidance to "prompt" high school principals to work together with ALL school district leaders, doing what's right for ALL our students; and stop running our Springboro High School like a union shop, making up classes with scant demand to ensure employment for union teachers whose skills were not in demand.

Education is all about money and power; and who has control of both! Stay Alert, Voters! We can't just invest in Malone's old outdated practices of status quo; We must stay the course and bring Malone, Stuckey, and Anderson "on board" with our current board's "reform minded VISION for our children's 21st century education WITH Quality Teachers in every classroom.

It's a shame that good space on this blog cannot be used to convey facts and information on issues like education in our classrooms,
quality teachers in our classrooms, and fair and balanced taxation of our community members, without the mindless filibustering of "No debate means No choice."

Let's look on the brighter side; perhaps if NDMNC will stay with us on this blog long enough, they too will catch sight of our broader reform minded vision of our children's 21st century education, with quality classroom teachers, putting our Students First while maintaining fiscal integrity, within the framework of our Children's First Budget! Wouldn't that be Great!!

Here's a great website that helps parents learn more about our
children's classroom teachers! Read it and pass it on!

This is just the teacher I was interested in, but you can put anyone in the search:

You're kidding, right? This thread would have petered out and died years ago if the topic of discussion had been limited to passage or failure of Springboro's school levys.
