Common Cor indoctrination

Springboro, OH

#31042 Mar 24, 2014
Quite a number of Springboro students have been, or are currently being "told" by their teachers that "they must take" the federal pilot PARCC test that's being given this week. This represents liberal indoctrination at it's pinnacle. As citizens of the U.S., each student has the right to either take this test, or refuse to take it altogether. Springboro Parents, it's up to you to let your children know that their teachers are not hired and placed in classrooms to be manipulaters or provokators.

The pilot PARCC test is meant to assess each student for ...."whether or not they're on track for postsecondary success, to help identify students who may be falling behind and need extra help".

By and large, the previous statement amounts to a heaping pile of horsepuckey. The PARCC tests are a huge invasion of personal privacy. Students receive no education credit for taking the PARCC test. You or your children will never see the results of these tests. The results of PARCC. tests go to Washington DC in order to establish each and every of our students' profiles in Federally-supported "universal" education standards - the absolute disaster better known as "Common Core". Common Core is about universalizing public school curriculum standards, and taking control of curriculum away from local and regional control. shifting that responsibility to the Federal government. Springboro students: ask your parents how effective / efficient they generally believe the Federal Government to be! Texas has made a law rejecting Common Core. Teachers unions in New York state have come out against Common Core and the PARCC test.

Why use Standards rated by the Fordham institute to be lower than 6 States? Why not use standards of Massachusetts, rated by Fordham Institute to be an A whereas, untested Common Core standards are rated as a B? Common core standards are totally untested whereas Massachusetts is tried, tested and proven to be the academic leaders in this country. Does this prove that the agenda is not rigor or raising the bar?

Are you aware that the PARCC consortium (government paid test writers) who receives the data collected from the tests and is under contract to send it directly to the federal government? This data does not go to the State first it goes directly to the federal government; PARCC is required to send it to them. The State of Ohio has no choice and cannot protect this data on our students. The data collected now is minimal but will increase. There are many examples shown in documents now available online. Children will be significantly monitored and measured during testing and privacy invaded with a battery of personal questions.

A message to Boro's students....
Just because lemmings have jumped off the cliff in front of you, doesn't mean you must also make the ill-advised and fateful decision to jump.
When it comes time for your class to take the PARCC tests, if you wish, feel free to politely tell your teacher "No, Thanks". Your teacher is responsible for finding something else for you to do (i.e. study hall).
Immediately ask to see your counselor if your teacher or an administrator attempting to force you to take the PARCC test. Also, immediately ask to see your counselor if you see a teacher or administrator attempting to force the P.A.R.C.C. test onto any of your peer students. If your counselor doesn't give you a satisfactory response, don't be afraid to go to the district website, then simultaneously email the issue to all five school board members.

If Molly Wray took the emails from her school account to her home wouldn't that be considered theft? If she did this and supported Petroni and Rigano would this be considered and handled differently?
You bet it would be handled differently!

At this moment, it's likely Molly Wray would no longer be employed by Springboro schools... if things were different... and Wray had abused Springboro schools student records in order to lure alumni onto her personal website so that she could heavily promote the joint school board campaign of Bitner / Vaughn.

In my book, that's the same as two disgruntled ex-employees bi!(+!#& to each other about... "that mean ol' boss".
Can't stand the heat? Well then, get out of the kitchen!
Now that we're getting fresh faces as super & treasurer, this will be an excellant time for the community to help bring religion to the BOE! We need administrators that will WORK WITH our elected board members, not dominate them along with the teachers union as they did in the Baker era and obviously continue to do now!
Citizens...come to the Nov 16 BOE meeting and speak your mind.
Did you know that the above post on this Topix blog is dated NOVEMBER 10, 2010?

De Ja Vu!... feeling of having lived through same moment before? You Betcha, we been there, done that!..... and here we go again!

Fresh Faces of Todd Petrey and Terrah Floyd, as Super and Treasurer, have now evolved from the same ole status of past failed practices of the good ole boys, Baker/Dettwiller!

Everything "Old" is "New" again as reflected in Todd Petrey's Renewed Vision for his proposal for Community Engagement with community organizer, Jeff Stec, "Stating the Beliefs, Mission and Vision for Springboro Community City Schools."

Citizens...come to the April 3, 2014, BOE meeting, and hear firsthand how Todd Petrey's $12,000 Contract for Jeff Stec's indoctrination for We Need A New School Levy for the Children Campaign gets rubber stamped by the MSA/SEA BOE majority. Come see for yourself "How could a union controlled Board of Education waste our hard earned school tax dollars in such an arrogant and disrespectful way toward Springboro Taxpayers who so generously support our school district employees?"

Todd Petrey's proposal for Community Engagement is nothing more than a highly expensive advertising campaign for what our schools could be like just 10 years from now; if TODAY, Springboro stakeholders would "BUY" into our school districts greedy love of more money and agree that the time has now come to increase our school taxes, so that our SEA employees can have increased wages/compensation benefits negotiated into their next teachers contract coming up early next year, 2015!

another been there done that moment! Remember when the public was told that the Students participation in the Pride Survey interrogation into the beliefs of our students and their parents was strictly voluntary?

And how did that work for us?

It didn't work at all, since a parent brought to attention in public board meeting that the Students were forced by staff to take the survey.

Wonder if our school administrators followed up confrontation of this forced participation in the Pride Survey, with the staff member responsible; and perhaps put a token reprimand in the teacher's file "not to violate our students privacy rights" again?

Or, could it be that the parent's complaint,(standing up for kids whose privacy rights are violated by union classroom teachers) just fell on deaf ears in the Board room; blinded by our school administrators' love of our wonderful union classroom teachers, who can do no wrong in their violation of the laws in place to protect our students' privacy rights; but only if the union classroom teachers chooses to do the right thing in the students' best interest; instead of doing wrong in the best interest of the Union First best political interest?

The worst part of this is that it involves a captive audience (students) that lacks the knowledge and power to challenge what they are being brainwashed to believe in the classroom led by a union teacher, teaching unionism.

If Mrs. Wray sent e-mails out, how is that a violation of their privacy? The former students she sent the e-mails to volunteered their addresses.

How is that worse than the school sending my kid's demographic information to Google so that they could set up my kid's Google account, something they did for every student in the district?

Which is worse there? Shouldn't there be an outcry about Google now owning actual private data that was provided by the school and not former students?

Why did the Hamilton County Republican Central Committee and the Warren County Republican Central Committees unanimously vote to sign onto the RNC resolution opposing Common Core?

Why did the Republican National Committee write a scathing resolution opposing Common Core and PARCC assessments (federal tests)?

Why has the New York Teachers Union come out to strongly oppose Common Core and the federal tests?

Why do some superintendents and legislators in New York and many other States now oppose Common Core and the federal tests called PARCC?

Why is the opposition to Common Core and federal tests growing and not decreasing as more evidence exposing this federal takeover and its political agenda becomes better known?
Why have 14 States established either legislative or citizen opposition?

Why did Texas outlaw Common Core and the federal tests?

Why are there hundreds of videos and articles showing Common Core math and English curriculum that make no sense? Do you believe it is all hysteria? Many facts can be found on Ohioans Against Common Core web site.

Why use Standards rated by the Fordham institute to be lower than 6 other States? Why not use standards of Massachusetts, rated by Fordham Institute to be an A whereas, untested Common Core standards are rated as a B? Common Core standards are totally untested and Massachusetts state standards are tried, tested and proven to be the academic leader in this country.

Are you aware that the PARCC consortia (government paid test writers) are who receives the data collected from the tests, and are under federal contract to send it directly to the federal government?
PARCC data does not go to the State first, it goes directly to the federal government. The State of Ohio has no choice and cannot protect the volumes of data collected on our students. The data collected now is invasive and will continue to increase. There are many examples in documents now available online, clearly showing the enormous amount of data that will be collected on your child, sent to the feds and archived, likely to be used for services in the future. Children will be significantly monitored and measured during testing and their privacy invaded with a battery of personal questions, physical measurements and emotional measurements. Remember, there are multiple tests per year.
.
Finally, are you aware that President Obama's children are both in private schools in Washington D.C? Neither Malia nor Sasha Obama will ever be "required" to take PARCC tests, nor will they get to experience the indoctrination of Common Core curriculum - an integral part of their father's plan to dislodge the heart of our Constutional freedoms and to continue his disastrous plans to socialize both health care & education in America !!

Typical Arrogant Boro Pride in that the Union classroom teacher can do no wrong!
Just Blame it on the Kids who "volunteered" the email addresses!

What's worse about that "there, here, all around, and everywhere" way down low in the Boro is "not only does Molly Wray commit a crime;" but those who support the union classroom teacher doing our students wrong (promoting their liberal progressive political agenda in our public schools) continue boasting and rationalizing that it really isn't such a crime after all; because after all, The Students Must Have Volunteered their ID's so that the students could become Victimized "willingly" by the union classroom teacher!

How do we know this to be true? Ask for the list of members on this hoakey pokey committee. It is literally the NFSS and SURE leftist pro levy committee. Lisa Babb, Tiffy Carlisle, David Bwman, Sarah Jobe, and a whole host of other current and former members of the Malone, Stucky and Anderson pro levy extortionists club. Get the picture?

BTW Stuckey lies. See the district video for the March 13 BOE meeeting where he says what was going on with the coaches camps. The boosters did not sponsor the camps, coaches did pocket a lot of money frlom them and coaches did not have insurance. Stuckey read the State audit report geeze can you just do your job?

BTW Anonamous Panther is not a student and is a leftist doing further indoctrination of "give all to be nice and roll over and kiss each other, be tolerant" yada yada yada. You people that believe this was a students should then tell this"student" to stop being a coward. We are not stupid, when sending a positive message you do it with your name, when you have sinister motives and you are known to be a communist, you hide your name.

Love the dumba-- statement sent in by Malone essentially telling Petroni to resign. You have got to be kidding me Malone. You are the one that should resign for screwing the students at Springboro High school for so many years. I agree with Petroni you are the inneffective dilusional one that needs to resign.

Trained well, I did notice that Petrey will not allow any other citizens onto these committees. See March BOE meeting video beginning of work session. Rigano asks if some parents can be on the committee. Petrey says "no" we are fine and can't have too many.
News Flash Petrey, Mrs, DeRosa is a district employee. We see what you are doing in circumventing elected officials by getting your groupies to over-rule elected officials.
This is tyranny, oops narcisism 101. Fill your court with your supporters and shut the door to any others. Not exactly welcoming citizen input.

After parents were told that students did not have to take the stupid, invasive, waste of time survey PRIDE survey once students were peeled away from parents and in the building where they were sitting ducks.

"Unforeseen issues" splayed out at board meetings yet this one was well seen. The whole HS was told to make these surveys optional yet, our children were forced to fill it out. This is abuse, telling children the PARCC is mandatory when it is not is yet again child abuse, using their protected private information for personal benefit is yet again abuse.

BTW the hysteria of "what if something happens", law suits and accidents and water-mane breaks- all to save money for adults. Come on Todd and Lee, News flash the district has insurance for everything you mentioned. Why are you telling fibs, do you really think we are all stupid?

The OEA/SEA BELIEVES: Classrooms in Our Public Schools should be used to CREATE a generation of students who support teachers and the movements of teachers for their rights.

The OEA/SEA does not even attempt to be Responsible about its desire to CREATE a Union Youth, as was proven right here in Springboro during the March 2012 Union Youth Protest against Board authority; and led by former SHS principal Ron Malone, during which time Malone's Union Youth group mocked at our newly elected conservative board members; and boasting that they would vote them out of office, after becoming old enough to vote.

How interesting it would be to know how many students among Ron Malone's March 2012 protest against Board authority were among those Boro Alumni email address used by Molly Wray in her over-zealous promotion of the BOE political campaign of two retired professional educators, Ron Malone and Dave Stuckey, who are now elected board of education members, and the bosses of Todd Petrey and Lee Vincent, who have given school teacher
Molly Wray a bag girl slap on the wrist (which expires in six months from her employment records) for committing this crime against our students. And that is just not Responsible behavior of our Professional Administrators; who are employed by Springboro families and taxpaying homeowners to "raise the bar" to highest standards of ethical behavior and professional behavior.

Did you know?

The first action taken by newly elected BOE president, Charles Anderson, was wasting taxpayers money by re-establishing OSBA membership; next the board voted to approve an OSBA contract for Treasurer's software, to assist the new full-time treasurer.

Did you know?

OSBA advocates AGAINST School choice, Vouchers, and Opportunities for Students and parents.

OSBA supports Common Core.

OSBA teaches school boards how to pass levies, promotes public education, even if they are failing, and limited transparency.

OSBA lobbies State Legislators to increase funding, but not accountability.

OSBA has joined with OEA in the formation of Strong Schools Strong Communities, an advocacy group to stop education reform by school choice.(Acts as an arm of the OEA)

OSBA has been in business since 1955. Since then, we now have approximately 72 unfunded State mandates, bringing into question just how effective can their lobbying be?

During this time, Ohio has improved to a C+ State by the quality count index. Most school districts will be in financial crisis in the next 5 years and 110,000 students have left Ohio public schools in the last 10 years.

OSBA price to Taxpayers is based on student count, and on how much the district spends per pupil. The more the district spends, the more the district pays, and the more OSBA profits.

Just Saying, most likely Malone Stuckey and Anderson have objection to the winning agenda of OSBLC, which has proven successful in our school district for the past two years, without the OSBA membership services of status quo past failed practices.

OSBLC advocates for school choice, Vouchers for all students and opportunities for students and parents.

OSBLC opposes Common Core and advocates for Ohio to fix an Ohio problem.

OSBLC teaches school boards how to avoid the need for levies and promotes transparency and the posting of all information the district can publish.

OSBLC lobbies State Legislators to either reduce the unnecessary mandates or increase funding to pay for them.

Why did Malone, Stuckey and Anderson vote to hire OSBA's services?
For what reason could Malone Stuckey and Anderson have any objection to Rigano and Petroni working with OSBLC?
Malone, Stuckey and Anderson voted to hire OSBA services, because OSBA teaches school boards how to pass levies (even though it has been proven that Children First Budgeting works with no new taxes needed);because OSBA promotes public education (which means Forced Unionism/No Choice); because OSBA supports common core standards (even though it doesn't raise the bard for student achievement and teacher accountability); because OSBA supports limited transparency (which means that the MSA majority renewed vision is just the same ole status quo tunnel vision, projecting their arrogant attacks on Springboro taxpayers "Just Shut Up; Trust the Educators; and Vote Yes the First Time that New School Taxes are on the ballot.
