Every teacher would instantly gain respect by this community if they refused to join a union, voted to reject unionism and opposed Common Core. I would encourage my community and my kids to respect them again. Hey, can this be published in the Boro News-it is a positive message and I claim to be a Springboro senior? It is sad but deserved that teachers are the least respected profession today. They can claim to be the saviors of society but in reality they are responsible for the failures in society. Teaching children useless, phony truths (history), to be ashamed of their heritage and to respect government not their own parents and churches.<quoted text>
It's spelled N-O R-E-S-P-E-C-T for the profession of Educators;

You are so right now Obama minions, liberals and communists are in full control of Springboro education. Let them have it but my kids are out. I saw this union, leftist control years ago when the word creationism made the lefties go berserk. That was it I immediately took my kids out. The liberal communists were the only ones speaking up and the only ones this apathetic community listened to. Instead of standing up for religious freedom, support our families and churches, this community got steam rolled and spun a rumor mill. Totally shameful, totally nauseating and I saw a side of Springboro that every district employee was a part of. They wanted raises, they wanted to feel good, they wanted to be held up as our heroes more than they wanted to protect their own religious rights not to mention our children. Shame, Shame, Shame on all of them. Now Malone scoffs at the word creationism, said at the candidate forum that "we will not discuss that kind of nonsense". Springboro wake up, this is the anti faith, anti religious freedom coward you elected. Springboro if you let this go you are responsible for your children losing their freedoms including their faithful rights. Realize that they scoff at faith inside the schools making you appear silly, discrediting your church and telling kids that that silly god created the world should be laughed at, not respected. Call for three resignations.

It is Communism, Sal Alinsky trains them well 101. Distract them with your waving hands. Use your emotions make them feel sorry for you, good try Molly. She claims she is a saint and pious so can't be guilty of anything bad. She claims she is being mistreated and everyone should feel sorry for her, boo hoo hoo. I know, right?
Anyone here typically run when a con-man or woman says, "I am with the lord so therefore I am good, you can trust me"? She claims to be godly so it is OK to not follow the laws and your students trust, it is OK to act unethically, it is OK to take things that do not belong to you as long as it matches your own personal goals. Ya know you can always sell it later as doing good. Not to mention her buddies Petrey and Vincent will protect her they are cut of the same cloth, they are in on the "plan". Springboro, wake up please.

No Way Molly Wray can do our students wrong using the false claim in her defense that she is just too good to wear the "bad girl bad girl" union label, under the Shame Shame Petrey/Vincent "Plan" of union classroom employment security; even to the detriment of our students' ID privacy rights. Good Golly Miss Molly! It's ok to be true to your school; but losing the trust of school district taxpayers really isn't very cool!

...."Springboro wake up, this is the anti faith, anti religious freedom coward you elected."
More than wanting raises, More than wanting to feel good, More than wanting to be held up as our heroes.....
MoreRon Status quo just wants to have fun basking in the praise and worship of himself in the creation of his very own disciples of Youth Unionism; encouraging all the Little Children to come unto the insanely popular god of unionism for their government entitlement of daily bread, served up by vote of approval from the bully pulpit in the board room.

Based on the first reading of New Board Policy 0160 regarding public participation, "they are in on the plan" to silence the voices of Springboro citizens (who may not be of the community of unionism) who pre-arrange to speak during public participation. At last board meeting April 3 the school superintendent tried to "sell" the new proposal that would "protect" the children's safety from hearing citizens comments; and that "The presiding officer shall be guided by the following rules:
c) Attendees must register their intention to participate in the public portion of the meeting upon their arrival at the meeting,
d) Participants must be recognized by the presiding officer and will be requested to preface their comments by an announcement of their name, address, and group affiliation, if and when appropriate,
f) All statements shall be directed to the presiding officer; no person may address or question Board members individually,
Further discussion of policy 0160 proposed changes will be held at the next Policy Committee meeting on April 22, 2014, 9:00 a.m. at the Board of Education Office.
The policy committee meeting is open to the public.

100% of those Springboro Stakeholders, who already know that our MSA BOE majority and our school district leaders/staff do not care about anyone's rights, beliefs, and thoughts
on the outside of their own community of unionism activists, promoting the lust and love of more money and power...... even to the extent of our union classroom teacher, Molly Wray, violating our own Students' privacy rights, using students personal ID school records to further her personal interest in promoting election of retired educators, Ron Malone and David Stuckey, to Springboro School Board of Education.

Todd Petrey has recently expressed concerns about past security issues in the board room, as well as a concern about future security. If Petrey is sincere about working to improve security in the board room, he needs to begin by addressing security problems at the specific points at which they've originated in the past. This would necessitate direct heart-to-heart conversations with notorious instigators such as S. Bindemann. I don't see this happenin' any time soon.

What is OSBA? The Ohio School Board Association has ben around for over 60 years. In it's early years up, until the 1980's, OSBA was broadly considered to be a reputable, solid organization dedicated to providing ground level support for public school boards. Those days are gone. These days, the OSBA is filled to the gills with liberals. Although the organization continues on with its orginal mission of providiing "support" for school districts, OSBA's reason for being in existence has less to do with education, and more to do with being a lobbyist organization.
This but ONE of the reasons why Boro's former BOE president Kelly Kohls not only refused to pay dues to OSBA, Kohls helped to organize the cutting-edge http://osblc.org/ a fresh new organization dedicated not to lobbying agendas, but to working with Ohio's publically elected board members to address key issues in 21 century public education.

Are School Board Associations Sabotaging Education Reform by Training local school board members NOT to ask questions--Just Shut Up and Vote Yes to Status Quo?
In theory, school board associations exist to strengthen public education. One of the ways they do that is by helping school officials stay on top of ever-changing education laws. For a fee, school board associations provide districts with sample policies that help school boards stay in full compliance with the law.
Thats pretty benign and noncontroversial.
But critics say school board associations too often veer outside of their narrow, nonpartisan mission and serve as mouthpieces for the teacher unions.

Todd Petrey has recently proposed board policy changes to Public Participation, by requiring citizens to "sign in" at the beginning of the meeting. Todd Petrey has recently expressed concerns about his responsibility of protecting our students' Safety; and it appears that Todd Petrey believes requiring citizens to sign in with their name, address, group affiliation if any, and topic of their comments to the board, will better protect our kids from Springboro citizens attending the public school board business meeting and the work session meeting.
This "sign in" policy is not really new -- our previous school superintendent and school treasurer tried this "requirement" (and some of those attending board meetings during that time still have copies of the form that the treasurer handed to citizens to fill out; so that the superintendent could then review whether or not the citizens concerns were worth being heard by the BOE elected officials. It's not known the reason "Why" previous school leaders believed they needed to "approve" citizens "safety clearance" before citizens could address board members, who are elected to represent all community members, and sworn into office to uphold the Constitution of the United States.
Our school district employees certainly have the upper hand by their Wordmanship of Legalities; but people in this community should remind Todd Petrey, IF he feels that our children's safety is compromised by Springboro citizens attending a Board of Education Business meeting with our own elected representatives, exercising our Constitutional rights of free speech, then why isn't it the responsibility of Superintendent Todd Petrey and BOE President, Charles Anderson, to STOP using our Children in the Board Business Meetings for Inspiration/Indoctrination? As responsible adults, if it is a known danger to our children's safety, the FIRST step in protecting our Children First is to REMOVE our children from that danger. Trying to micro-manage citizens "speech" in a Community Business meeting is not the best approach. It does conjure up a whole lot of "emotionalism" attached to these requirements proposed on citizens attending a public board meeting, when the Why for
proposing this change is to protect the children.

Perhaps Petrey could implement a separate sign-in sheet to help reel in union-bullies and the levy-ladies.
#31214 Apr 23, 2014
Could it be that Petrey has already been reeled in by union-bullies and the levy-ladies by his super sweet surrender for S-U-R-E activist Mom; and could it be that Petrey is now taking his marching orders from levy lady MSA campaign manager?
Could it be that Petrey has lost credibility with Springboro Stakeholders as he has publicly embraced S-U-R-E activist Mom as having the experience he needs to re-instate MoreRon status quo past failed practices into Board policy; while telling another Springboro Mom in public board meeting that he had all the parents he needed on the Policy Committee and her volunteer offer to serve on Policy Committee was denied by Petrey?
It appears that Petrey's "Values in Beliefs" of forced unionism merits wasting $12,000 plus of Springboro families' school tax dollars in hiring Jeff Stec's year-long program of Community Engagement to rationalize "What Are the Values in the Beliefs of Springboro Taxpayers" but, in public meeting, Petrey denied One Springboro Parent opportunity to Volunteer giving input of "Values in Beliefs" as a member of Petrey's hand-picked Moms to serve with him on the Policy committee.
What a Waste of school tax dollars and even more important, what a waste of expertise of this Springboro Mom, that Petrey so arrogantly and rudely tossed aside; in favor of his arrogant and rude Springboro Mom activist for S-U-R-E.
#31217 Apr 25, 2014
Perhaps Petrey arrogantly and rudely tossed aside a common sense Springboro Mom in favor of an arrogant and rude S-U-R-E activist Springboro Mom. However there's much more here that should be kept in perspective.
When MSA collectively won last November, Petrey surely had to understand his options.
Option One involved working to show he would adhere to MSA's obvious Union First, Children Second agenda.
Option Two involved staying true to the inner conscience as well as to the students of Springboro by remaining steadfast to hard-fought pre-election Children First initiatives.
The fact of the matter is this entire thread is a complete loop of irony. Boro schools is back to where they were in 2008 when Dr. David Baker served as the BOE's unofficial mouthpiece of deception.
Boro's supintendent isn't the problem.
Boro's problems lie within the hearts of those who are currently manipulating our superintendent.
#31218 Apr 25, 2014
Springboro's community of unionism can never get enough of what they really don't need.....
......and that's draining our teachers' salaries with unnecessary union dues.
First they wanted raises; then they wanted to feel good about their raises; but even that wasn't enough to satisfy their greed for more union dues to be collected; Now they want more big increases in school staff, so that more increased union dues can be drained out of our children's classrooms; and into the SEA treasure chest.

Who Is Todd Petrey?
Even before the SEA activists took control of the MSA BOE majority, school superintendent Todd Petrey remained loyal to his pro-union roots, singing praise and honor of our former SHS principal, who is insanely popular with SEA pro-levy activists; and for S-U-R-E our Youth Union activists, all of whom joined in the March 2012 Ron Malone protest against Board authority, in their community-wide (failed) efforts to throw out of office the newly elected board representatives.
Remember the student survey that Todd Petrey conducted among students to find out what characteristics the high school students wanted in their new principal? Remember the results revealed in public meeting -- surprise! surprise! what the students want is Principal Ron! Remember the comments made by the superintendent that it would take Three inexperienced administrators to replace the expertise of this ONE Principal Ron, who is insanely popular with the SEA activists and parents for S-U-R-E and the SEA student union group?
Now that retired educator Ron Malone is BOE vice president, school superintendent Todd Petrey has re-grouped his Superintendent/Board of Education Student Communication Council; (wonder if Anonymous Panther is the Student Communication Council Chairperson?).....
Remember Ron Malone's nod of appreciation to the school superintendent in public board meeting recently; with MoreRon's comments that these youth union activists meetings would be making a greater impact on the future decisions being made in the Board's business meetings?
