In Allegheny County, the lowest school district graduation rate was in Wilkinsburg at 60.19 percent. Three others also had rates below 70 percent: McKeesport Area, 62.69 percent; Sto-Rox, 66.18 percent; and Pittsburgh, 69.11 percent.

But we all know that three new elementary schools will enhance our graduation rate?

The City employee loaded MASD school board is going to spend millions on three new schools. There is no justification for the three new schools with a declining population. And, there is no justification for that bogus contract gifted to Gerry Tedesco. The more schools you build and the more changes the wealthier Gerry Tedesco becomes.

I am sure that the over paid and over pensioned teacher and administrators can improve the graduation rate if you budget more $$$$$$$ for them.

The graduation rate of MASD students will INCREASE significantly, if and when, ALL PARENTS, WITHOUT ANY CONDITIONS, ARE OFFERED VOUCHERS.

How about that teacher getting a $40,000 bump in his/her salary and increasing it to about $98,000?

Can't wait to see what Gerry Tedesco gets hired to build if AJ is elected. Can't wait to see how much money is spent "up front"! What a freakin' joke - some young kid with NO political experience wants to be elected Mayor. Does anyone see what's really going on here? West Mifflin, McKeesport MASD - did anyone learn anything from what went on with the corrupt up front payments, payments for work never done - wow! Can people really be this stupid?

Keep you eyes on the other $60 million ball.

Over $60 million of construction work pending from the MACM. And the MACM board was hand picked and is controlled by the former mayor.

Over $60 million of construction work for the unnecessary MASD building programs. And five City employees are controlled by the former mayor’s puppets on Council and his push to have a school teacher for mayor.

Wow – what is wrong with this enticing $$$$$ picture?

Two serious violations of legal devices?- Violations of the HRC and other laws that prohibit the appointment of elected officials to authorities or boards. Only in the City and MASD who are above the law.
