Does this sound familiar? If you've been here for a while, it should! Because, ladies and gentlemen, Springboro School District is headed backward by the speed of light to re-kindle the infamous DR. DAVID BAKER era !!

Now she is parading around on the tea party circuit talking to everyone that will listen about all the success of the "our agenda first" board. Leave our children in the dust, demean our teachers and principals to the point they flock in record numbers. Then, push all things controversial like anti-labor rhetoric and introducing guns to our children's classrooms.

It's incredible that someone who cannot even manage their own personal affairs is allowed to thrust her political agenda upon our community. This community is a great place to live, and people like Kelly Kohls as well as her sidekicks Jim Rigano and David Petroni are trying to destroy it. Who could be surprised though, since their aim is merely political and their children don't even attend our district?!

Further, now that her children are grown and out of the district, she wants to divert more of the limited funds available to local public school districts. Instead, they would be given as "vouchers" to families that would like to use our tax dollars to send their kids to private, usually religious, schools of their choosing. Guess who runs these schools? Yes indeed...the regulars from the Tea Party gang including Kohls herself! Ethical? I sure don't think so...

And when this happens, what is to become of our children who attend the public school? Their teachers will all be gone because other districts pay a fair wage while our board cuts them left and right. The principals will all retire when they reach that point because they don't "fit" with the school board's lunatic fringe.

The news sites are just full of her absurdity:

lol...what hypocrites are those SURE parents who stand up in public meeting pretending to protect our kids from being "exposed" to the indecency of a symbolic flag (swirled around by another Springboro Parent trying to get his 5 minutes of shock and awe fame in front of the TV cameras); BUT this same parent isn't offended at all by our students being forced to read the "indecency of Howard Zinn." even more, lol and omg....
this SURE parent who pulled in one of the board members to join her in "shaming and blaming" another Springboro parent, who wasn't even present at the meeting, was the same SURE parent who was told by the board president that she would have to CEASE her military mom potty mouth language in front of our children and the TV cameras, or else our board meetings would be thrown off the air! lol... what hypocrites for SURE! Where's the Responsible Education in that united effort to embarrass and make a laughing stock of the indoctrinated influence of the non-professional educators of the Springboro Education Association.

I have to agree with Taxed Enough's comments. More focus needs to be placed on academics and not just the bogus claim that Springboro Schools has received an "excellence" rating. With the demographics of Springboro and the amount of time spent teaching to the test each year, it would be a calamity if Springboro did NOT receive the excellent rating.
The district is moaning about the increase in gas and heating costs for the schools, but this is something that everyone is experiencing. The only difference is that the individual family cannot just go to their job and tell them to fork over more cash to cover the increases, rather they must learn to live with what income they receive. Springboro Schools will need to do the same. Also, Springboro's complaint that they are paying more for healthcare costs for employees is annoying. Everyone, every business, is also experiencing this increase and the result is the individual employee is having to contribute more money to cover their own healthcare. Let the Springboro School District pass the costs on also. The voters cannot carry their own and the districts healthcare increases! Give me a break!
"Our leaders must remember that education doesn't begin with some isolated bureaucrat in Washington. It doesn't even begin with state or local officials. Education begins in the home."
-Ronald Reagan

As a matter of policy, the time has now come for Springboro taxpayers to DEMAND that Springboro parents step up and work shoulder to shoulder in sharing the burden of educating
Springboro students. We need to take a closer look at exactly what is meant by a "quality classroom education" and exactly what cost is our civic responsibility; and exactly which sports and extra curricular activities are to be paid for by volunteer community support and individual parents to their own children who benenfit most from these great programs, during the time of their participation.

Very Simple...They are compensated for the service they provide. They are compensated quite well when all things are considered. They have an excellent benefit package, excellent work condidtions, excellent community support. Long lines of teachers wanting to work here... one is even suing to work here, so the claim they will go elsewhere is garbage.
The BOE has offered more in the way of compensation, more in the way of step raises (which, IMHO, should be done away with entirely...Who else get a raise for simply showing up next year?) And they azre being asked to pay just 20% of their onw health care coverage.
So to your point of wanting more...
what is fair?
What is Unfair about the BOE's offer?
One would think these should be simple questions to answer fo you.
Who else but our Springboro Schools Board of Education representatives would unanimously vote for increased pay for Springboro teachers, and slight reduction in renewal levy for
Springboro, giving a win-win fair deal to us all! Our board members are to be commended for their great efforts, truly going the extra mile in tireless hours of work in order to meet the Springboro Education Association far more than just half way!

Who else but the Springboro Education Association would refuse to show up at public board meeting to celebrate the success of our school community and community of taxpayers!

Who else but the greedy Springboro Education Association would send their bullies to demand that the BOE give it all to the SEA; and just because they didn't get it all, who else but the greedy SEA would threaten to strike against taxpayers again in just two short years, and walk out on our children's classroom education, just like they threatened to do, before the BOE gave in to their recent demands to give the SEA all that they wanted!

But did the SEA think it was fair that ALL their employment contract demands were met by the BOE? Not at all! When the DDN reported that starting salaries of Springboro teachers were lowest of all in Warren County, taxpayers were shamed and blamed into asking ourselves if this was what we wanted in our school district. Now, after the SEA got everything they asked for in negotiations seettlements, the DDN reports that now the starting salaries of Springboro teachers are the highest in Warren County!
Who else but the greedy non-professional educators of the SEA would threaten to strike in two years IF they were not offered even higher pay to convince teachers to stay employed in Springboro Schools? Perhaps it time for community members to ask ourselves if this is the non-professional level of hostility and emotional blackmail that we want to invest in our school renewal levy in November 2013. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. If the Money is not made available to the Springboro Education Association, then what will they use to exploit our children and blackmail taxpayers with in just two short years
as they strike against us for pay increases for teachers?

Why be such a hypocrite, Doug??
No Doubt, Doug is not perfect, but among the Vipers and Hypocrites of the non-professional Springboro Education Association, no doubt, Doug stands head and shoulders above all.
I have observed our good neighbor, Doug, for the past two years in public school board meetings; and I agree that no doubt, Doug, is the most experienced person in the forum when it comes to dealing with the BOE prosecutors for S-U-R-E and NFSS.
No Doubt, Doug's personal and business expertise, plus his successful dealings with the legal prosecutors, make him a perfect "fit" in dealing with the SEA bully prosecutors of BOE elected officials, during these continuous rounds of "interrogations and false accusations" being brought against our good neighbors in Springboro, who serve our schools and community with great civic pride as elected BOE members.
No doubt, Doug is a "near-perfect" Springboro Parent to run for Springboro Schools BOE election in November 2013. Doug has already been vetted by the hostile political opposition, who have already dug up those dry old bones of false accusations, that just won't "live again" no matter how hard the SEA politics of personal destruction tries to discredit Doug's character, and distract from his business success.
Also, while others have demanded that the board increase taxes on all Springboro families, but never offering financial contributions of their own to our school children, Doug is one of two Springboro parents that I've seen come to the podium during public school board meeting, asking for nothing for his own best interest, but simply offering hundreds of dollars in donations to our schools! Now that's the Springboro parent that I would vote for school board representative, if our good neighbor, Doug, would stand up for kids in November and run for school board election.

Even the Tax and Spend Liberals of the SEA and NFSS must acknowledge the financial turnaround of Springboro Schools. Please take the time to thank our current BOE members for standing up for Students, Tax Payers and teachers. See David Petroni’s latest message of BOE Successes at link below:

The Tea Party represents America's last hope; or rather the last line of defense against a wave of rampant, destructive Obama-style social liberalism.
Not a Chance that the November School Renewal Levy will pass without THREE GOOD CONSERVATIVES stepping up to protect our INVESTMENT in our children's future! Springboro taxpayers have done our homework and we know the truth that we will trust ONLY conservative responsible spenders with our Children's First Budget success. The hour is late; the clock is ticking; in what direction will our school district go in November 2013?

Springboro parent, Kelly Kohls, has stood in the line of fire against the unionism's enemies of our children's souls. Where among our Springboro Parents is there support for Kelly? Over and over we hear conservative parents voice fear of backlash from their child's teacher, if they dare oppose the OEA indoctrination of our children's minds! Why is this? Why are Springboro parents allowing union scumbag bullies to intimidate, threaten, ridicule, and force silence among us in standing up for kids?

Our conservative BOE majority have proven themselves trustworthy, fiscally responsible, and our children's first budget prioritizes our kids best interest in every decision.
Before Kelly Kohls got on this school board, our district projected a $30 million deficit. Now, they project a $5 million surplus after replacing many things taken from the children during the levy campaigns. They have now added many curriculum and safety measures for the children of our district. All of this without new money. What changed? Our reform minded conservative BOE representatives have become much more efficient, they are holding people accountable and they are making all decisions using what is good for education and our children's classroom teachers as their priority. Children's First Budgeting Works! There needs to be a BOE majority of Three Conservatives elected in November in order for our school district to continue in the right direction!
There is too much at stake for our school children and community for voters to veer Left in the direction of tax and spend lovers!
