I find Mrs. Hurley's points on topic and logically presented. It is only those to whom she poses these questions that find them annoying and uncomfortable. This feeling on the part of the recipients is most likely caused by knowing she is right in her analysis and they have nothing with which to refute her point of contention.

Bravo Mrs. Hurley for your intestinal fortitude and persistent manner, if they don't answer the question the first time, you need to ask it again. If they don't answer the question fully, there is always the follow up question to clarify the issue.

The truth is neither political or propaganda, it is simply an honest statement of fact.

The perpetual whiners of the world always seem small and inconsequential.

America is s a nation organized by the Founding Fathers who recognized a need for religious freedom. "Religious freedom" means that each and every Americans, under the U.S. Constitution, has freedom to worship any way they choose. Or Americans can make a conscoius decision to not worship at all, and not be legally prosecuted. They can choose to be Christian. They can choose to be Jewish. They choose to be Muslim. They can choose to be Buddhist. They can choose to be Hindu. They can choose to be atheist, or to not affilate themselves with organized religion, whatsoever. All of this has been Constitutionally guaranteed for over 230 years.

What's your problem LH? Do you believe all other Americans should be worshiping the same as you? LOL! If they were still alive today, the Founding Fathers would be laughing their a&&es off at your myopic, selfish bigotry!

June 14 is Flag Day and a Celebration of Dual Citizenship (earthly citizenship and Heavenly Citizenship) for all those Believers in God's Gift of Salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ.
The Christian Citizen's Values in Education are deeply rooted in "Teaching for Eternity" and we are equally yoked with all Good Citizens of our Springboro Education Association's
ONE community of Union Solidarity. Christian Citizens take different paths from our ONE community of Union Solidarity where K-12 public school education is all about money and power and who gets to control both.

We all stand together as ONE COMMUNITY pledging allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, but Thanks to Our Founding Fathers Godly Wisdom and Constitutional Rights, Christian Citizens can also pray silently to Our Heavenly Father our pledge of Christian citizenship that we were taught at home and at the church of our choice.....
I pledge allegiance to the Christian Flag, and to the Savior for which it stands........!

How Sweet The Sound of Children's Voices reciting the Pledge to the Christian Flag, along with the The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the Unitied States of America!
Springboro Schools are now closed for Summer Vacation and that means that our community churches will once again be opening its doors for children to attend Vacation Bible School! Parents are encouraged to get involved in joining your churches efforts to reach out to all children in our community, investing in the lives and future of our children and the future leaders of our Great Nation, The United States of American! May God Bless America and May God Bless Us All!

What's in a name? No matter who the SEA president is at this time, the game of Big Bully Union Solidarity Against Our Children First is the same.
The battle plan strategy of the Springboro Education Association for SURE that is outlined by Scott Maney on the Ohio E&A website is still Moving Forward under the marching orders of School BoardPresident Charles Anderson and Vice PresidentRon Malone. This website article This Is What Solidarity Looks Like clearly shows that the Teachers Union set out to silence the Voices of Three Board Of Education elected officials by personally demonizing each one's character in efforts to discredit, distort and detract attention away from the AMAZINGLY AWESOME progress being made, doing what's right for our school children and community.
Scott Maney and Ron Malone led the Union Youth Group in a community wide PROTEST against these newly elected board members in March 2012; with students, parents and Teachers lining up in the SHS auditorium in public meeting demanding that these board members leave "education" to the experts. Scott Maney and Ron Malone refused to recognize the constitutional rights of three elected officials to render their rightful service to Springboro Families and community members, with priority of highest individual academic achievement for all students first and fiscal responsibility.
David Baker is no longer Superintendent in our school district, EXCEPT by another name,
Todd Petrey.
So, we all need to know Who is current SEA President, who will be leading attacks against Springboro families demanding MORE next year in teacher contract negotiating than ever before; OR emotionally blackmailing of threats to walk out on Strike against our children's classroom, IF their bully demands are not met in full?
Did you know that our Springboro School Superintendent, Todd Petrey, extends his invitation to attend Jeff Stec's School-Community Meetings in notices all over town, stating the "logo" One Boro Community- Many Voices- One Future?

Did you know that Todd Petrey's invitation states that "there are many voices in our school district. And we want to hear yours?" And that Todd Petrey is charging Springboro Taxpayers $12,000 to "hear" our voice in his levy promotion campaign; but that Todd Petrey refused to listen to the "many voices in our school district" regarding important policy issues, but only chooses ONE voice for SURE as all the help needed from parents on his Union controlled District Policy Committee?

Did you know that this highest paid ever school employee, Todd Petrey,($130,000/yr for five year employment contract) who is financially supported by All Springboro Taxpaying Families
recently in public board meeting told a Volunteer Parent asking to serve on the District Policy Committee that he had enough input from parents (other than ONE Springboro Mom for SURE who is the ONLY community member appointed to Petrey's Policy Committee).
Can you imagine a school superintendent who is hired to manage our multi-million dollar school tax budget to the best interest of all our students future education telling a Springboro Parent that he only wants to hear from Stephanie Bindemann regarding important Policy Committee issues that affect all our school children and community members?

Did you know that Todd Petrey's consideration of the Big Picture about Education's role in our community is what ONE Future of Union Solidarity looks like? Read the proof on the ohea.org website that our Springboro Education Association is planning ONE future for our school children and community that FREES the union classroom teacher from accountability of performance based on merit pay system; that brings health insurance in line with the private sector; and that requires that teachers work in the same rigorous manner as others in the community?

@who="a coward" - Never mind the whiners on this topix blog who are trained professionals in the expertise of "Whining" attacks of Ridicule, hoping to destroy the Truths of important issues with their FEAR (false evidence appearing real) of losing power and control over others.

This professional whining shown in the above post is consistent with Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. One of the most effective tactics of the professional whiners is described in the book as follows:

Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.
In conflict tactics there are certain rules that should be regarded as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and frozen....

..any target can always say, "Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?" When you freeze the target, you disregard these rational but distracting arguments... Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the others come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target.....
(Remember - a good tactic is one your people enjoy! And oh how our Springboro professional educators do enjoy huddling together in ridicule against Springboro Familes! Talk about biting the hand hand that feeds you!.... And at Taxpayers Expense!)
"One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on ONE side and all the devils on the OTHER." - pages 127-134

The Springboro Education Association members/union activists for SURE are Masters of Professional Whiners, well versed on many of these harmful Rules for Radicals tactics practiced in efforts to wear down the will of their opposition.
People in this community should read the book and Believe in themselves to stand strong doing what's right, in spite of these silly politics of personal destruction coming from our professional whiners on the left.

Education is all about power and money and who has control of both.
Remember Voters - Only YOU have the Power to say NO to the SEA's professional whiners begging for New Taxes "for the kids"........ coming soon to the Boro!

Did you know that former SEA president, Scott Maney, who has been a Springboro Schools Social Studies union classroom teacher is rumored around the Boro as having said in the DDN that his Topix blog is like a cancer in Springboro?
Monday Morning post is proof that at least for once during Scott Maney's employment in Springboro schools that he actually told the truth. What a Rotten comment for Monday Morning to make on this Topix blog! Bet that professional opinion attacking Springboro families was based on the insanely rude diagnosis o retired educators/board members Ron Malone and David Stuckey.

For some reason the above post keeps getting deleted by someone. I wonder what some would find so offensive that the information contained within must be kept from public view.

Are the number of children at the 7th grade level who are comprehending less than 75% of the math material disturbing to this community?

Less than 1 child in 4 scores 75% or better on the Ohio Achievement Assessment math test in Springboro.

Those numbers my friends do not make an excellent with distinction school district.

Can we do better?

Yes.

Will spending $2,000,000 on a new curriculum suddenly turn kids smart?

Nope.

Maybe we can try teaching the material that is in the books we already have. There is no question on the test that cannot be found in the existing text books.

Will aligning ourselves with the Common Core make our children more intelligent?

Nope.

The only way the necessary learning will occur is through teaching all of the children the material that is in the text books we already have in place.

After all, how much has math changed in the past decade?

Our school superintendent is also fond of saying that superintendents who can't pass levies in their school district don't get hired by other school districts and there's a lot of people out there looking to be hired.
Our school superintendent is deeply embedded in the the OSBA philosophy of indoctrination that a school superintendent is really just the Big Chief of Fund Raising and promoting increased taxes as a way of identifying the superintendent as successful. That's the Beliefs and Values in Education embraced by the current SEA union controlled MSA board majority.
That's why Mr. Petrey has hired Mr. Stec to run a wasteful promotion campaign for projected New Taxes needed for employment security and increased wages/compensation benefits packages for Teachers Union members. Keep in mind that the priority agenda of the SEA president is to increase Staff members, Staff Salaries and compensation benefits packages; and keep in mind that the priority of increasing number of Union Teachers is so that the SEA has more union teachers paying Union dues..... the more salary that Maney can manipulate out of our childrens first classroom school tax dollars; equals more dollars paid into local, state, and national dues, then straight into the pockets of politicians of Both political parties. Politicians in Ohio financially benefit greatly from the status quo politics of forced unionism. No matter who gets elected, Taxpayers never get a break!
Stay Alert Voters! Don't let our highly paid fund raising levy promoting school superintendent Todd Petrey break the resolve of Springboro Stakeholders to Vote No on Unnecessary school levy tax increases. Our school district has plenty of money and is now receiving more money from the State than ever before.
Don't let this $5 million DEBT of Todd Petrey's to his district budget committee member for Sure, Todd Smith, enslave our children first and Springboro families with more DEBT to this local school government! Just Say NO to New Taxes!
