But you just stated that Malone was the "defacto leader" of this district. Therefore he is responsible for all that has occured in the district. That would be even more reason to put him on the board since during this "defacto leadership" all these wonderful things everyone thought the BOE was doing was actually controlled by his hand.<quoted text>
Since Mr. Malone, in his position at the top of the heirarchy of our school district, was the defacto leader of all of his farm systems that fed students into his high school, one would have thought he may have had a passing interest in the education of the children feeding into his school.
Why did Mr. Malone, with his 41 years of excellent educational experience, never seem to exert his influence and leadership for the benefit of all the children of Springboro?
As the defacto leader of the school district, was it not his responsibility to lead in a way that would produce positive results for all students?
The High Schools That Works program audits our high school every three years. There are repeated mentions of increasing the rigor of curriculum, increasing the participation rates of our A/P classes, putting more emphasis on getting children college ready. They show up with each audit as though no one was paying attention to the recommendations.
"Documents provided to the TAV Team indicate that contrary tothe HSTW philosophy, SHS
believes that offering low~level courses is in the best interest of students.≠ This belief,
however, was not substantiated by research or data."
Professional peers trying to be nice wrote that for Mr. Malone in January 2013.
With 13 years at the helm to fix the problem, Mr. Malone opted instead to take a different tact and use his large store of influence in the community to reduce the strength of the curriculum.
Seriously, Vote Bitner, Vaughn, and Anderson
Malone for BOE!
