ND's break from the Syracuse Diocese doesn't look like much of a break. It seems that the meeting left parents expecting more of the same; that is, if they were looking for a change, or even an explanation of the recent upheaval.

We certainly can't call this a parent meeting when only 20 people show up and the ones who did are football related. The parents at ND will never support this kind of movement because it is motivated by Byron behind closed doors. Besides the few parents who are involved really are making matters worse.

And god knows we really dont care what happened to our stupid potato kids as long as we get entertained. Who needs marketable skills when we can all act like this is the most important thing our kids need. No wonder NH and ND schools produce life losers but WE MUST BE ENTERTAINED WITH SUPERFICIAL BULLSHIT while squandering our kids lives so they have to force THEIR kids to hope and lick coach rod for a scholarship! It is our only hope thats why we care about this stupidshit more than the rest of our retarded kids education.

The Byron Abraham advocates got shut down when they tried to hand out pro-Byron flyers after school and on busses. They were mad. They went to a meeting and they want to be on the new board because they think they can get their way if they are. Many of the children who got the flyers threw them away as soon as they got them. I'm not sure why this small group of parents thinks they have a lot of support for what they are doing. I don't think they do. Most parents are smart enough to know that football isn't a main reason why parents send their children to ND. They also realize that they are probably better off without a coach who doesn't follow orders.

The point going forward is not what happened to Byron, but how it was handled by the school administration. This was done poorly and if this is how the adminstration and "new" school board are going to do business in the future, then I am concerned. This is the real issue that needs to be rectified. The emotions of the Byron firing will calm down over time. Order will be restored. Now as concerned parents we will need to ensure that the administration and board act more professionally and with complete transparency in the future. This "new" board should have never been involved with the Byron situation. They were too infintile to handle such a matter. This "new" board needs to apologize to the student body of ND and too the parents for their role. This matter should have been handled by Sister, Mr. Kane, and the AD. It should have been between them and Byron. One last thing, parents need to stop running to the administration every time little Johnnie or Mary doesn't make a team, doesn't play in a game, or fails a test that they think was too hard.

I have been searching for the right words to explain how I feel about the way ND handled this situation. You have said exactly what I feel and I commend you for your offering here.
