"Other surprises in the 2013 Poll, was how well some countries outperformed others that spend more per student. The United States had the highest per cost per student ($15,172) but ranked 18th; countries like Estonia 17th ($6,126), Finland 6th ($10,157) and even first place Japan spends less ($10,596) per student."
In Springboro we spend $7,926.
Oakwood spends $11,240.
Mason spends $10,125.
Looks like money does help.

Isn't common core really all about leveraging all school tax dollars that are collected on a local level (including wealthy and affluent zip code area 45066) and then allowing the federal government to suck up local tax dollars and then "spread the wealth" because the federal government "feels" like the system works better to collectively dumbdown the masses?
Probe deeper into the more you know about common core and you might agree with those who believe that common core standards are more focused on perceived needs of income equality, other than raising the bar for excellence in education putting priority on each individual's highest academic achievement potential.

Detroit, Michigan $14,880 per pupil in the public schools
Their kids must be twice as smart as ours.
Washington, DC $29,409 per pupil in the public schools
Their kids must be four times smarter than ours
Dayton, OH (2010-11)$14,047
Again are these kids twice as smart as ours.

Not really, only in historical record for those attempts at central planning and those five year plans were beauts. Central planning has invariably failed in those worker's paradises and will fail again in the United States. Who will suffer the consequences of the elitist arrogance? The children, just like always.

Of course "Money Does Help" and that's why Springboro citizens are focusing on current ongoing investigations of our former SHS principal's misallocation of our school district funds and resources; and the outrage of this Booster Board officer's million dollar theft of our money, right under the noses of our School Superintendent, School Principal, School Athletic Director, and elected Board of Education representatives. All these "powers that be" simple IGNORED one parent's question in a public board meeting when the question was asked: Where does the pay to play fees go? Springboro citizens are still asking that question and we are not going to be diverted in our seach for truth (and holding those accountable who have lied to us all these years, in protection of themselves) by these silly ridicules of "the more you know." Where is the outrage? And what has the outrage of theft/misallocation of money in our Springboro schools got to do with how much money Oakwood and Mason spend?
Springboro Citizens Want to Know: WHERE IS THE MONEY?
The More You Know about the true history of our school district financial oversights in the years before 2010 (when Springboro parent Kelly Kohls came on the BOE and started asking Tough Questions) then the more Springboro Taxpayers know that our school district does not need MORE money; we need MORE accountability to taxpayers from those in responsible leadership positions.
Other School districts should be watching these ongoing audits currently continuing in our Springboro Schools.

And your answer to China and Russia being above us?

Anyone else notice not a soul came to the rescue of our ethically challenged coaching staff or their erstwhile management? No one gave a good accounting of why it was better to divert money from the Mom's Club and put it in the coaches private accounts.
Where are the Boosters who know where the money went and now seemingly have no problem with Mr. Holtrey pocketing the money that was supposed to go to support our children's programs?
I wonder if there will be a rally?

AGAIN where does the common core standards "dumb down" the masses? Where is the CEILING for learning under the standards? Please provide the PROOF. 8th grade math can still be taught in 7th grade students under the standard.

This quarters report highlight where the top 20 countries education systems strengthen lies and where there needs to be improvement to maintain, move-up, or drop out of the top 20.
2. South Korea
3. United Kingdom
12. New Zealand
18. United States of America
Russia 5, China 11, USA 18. If this is an example of central planning in education why wouldn't we want in on it??????

Here we go again with the generalizations. I suppose you have asked ALL springboro citizens? What gives you the right to speak for all of them?
#30678 Feb 20, 2014
Their kids work harder and more is expected of them.
#30679 Feb 20, 2014
You can look at the great thing the state minimum standards and no child left behind (authored by the great humanitarian Ted Kennedy) standards as examples of how this continues to artificially inflate euphemistic achievement.
If the 80% of 8th graders cannot pass the basic Ohio Achievement Assessment test now, do you really believe they are going to be smarter in 7th grade?

The above post is Not Really Worth Repeating again," but hey there, have you noticed the OBSESSION that some on this Topix blog have with trying to distract readers from the Truth that Doug Weideman is posting?
Are you not one of those on this blog that are OBSESSED with politics of personal destruction, trying to discredit the good service of private citizen, Doug Weideman, who has the wherewithal and business expertise to understand the importance of
this continuing "Probe of Coach Camps to Continue" as stated in the DDN February 11, 2014, article?
Yost's office and the school district would not comment on the '"additional issues."
"That audit is ongoing," Blaine Kelly, spokesman for the Ohio Auditor's Office, said.

Why not ask Tiffany Carlisle?
Tiffany led the North Park Rally in July 2012.
Wasn't Tiffany (along with Sarah Jobe) Principal Malone's chosen One for SHS representation to Todd Petrey's District Parents Council?
Wasn't Tiffany one of the NFSS ladies who protested in public board meeting the reduced fees for pay to play? Wasn't Tiffany the NFSS lady that object to the Board's vote to offer the student work program; so that those students having financial difficulty could earn the money to participate in a sport that they enjoyed?
Was it not within this close knit insiders group of District Parents Council (including Tiffany) that the Superintendent aired his complaints against our Springboro parents who had not paid their past due fees to the school district, discussing the negative impacts of this loss of revenue (more than $200,000?)
Was it not the NFSS Levy Queen who "sympathetically" protested that the 25% reduction in fees had been granted by "this Board"..... adding that she would be willing to pick up the extra cost, without the reduction in fees, if there were parents that really could not afford to pay....
But, the NFSS Levy Queen "Confided" to our highly paid school superintendent
..... that she didn't approve of a certain Board Member (who was elected in November 2009) wasting money on a family vacation?
#30682 Feb 20, 2014
I don't deal in speculation, just facts. The facts are that the boosters "got took" for over 400k .
#30683 Feb 20, 2014
they don't put up with whining school unions.
#30684 Feb 20, 2014
Is the word "stipend" their word or the auditors? I don't see any of the statements in quotes.
#30685 Feb 20, 2014
Here you go, Dumbo....
My "right" to speak for "all of them" is given by those of them, whom I am currently enjoying lunch with, discussing Current Events in the News, relevant to ALL Springboro citizens in our school district and throughout our community. Springboro Citizens with whom I am speaking, ALL agree that our former under-performing SHS principal, Ron Malone, must
have closer scrutiny from the taxpaying citizens, now that he is an elected Board representative; Who must be held accountable for his past practices of failed leadership; and cannot be allowed to continue those status quo failures, now that we all know that Ron Malone's true history is not as golden as we have been led to believe.
Stay with me now, as I count for you, these Springboro citizens who are here with me, that ALL agree that we should stay focused on these current events surrounding the probe of coaches past behavior, who are employed as Teachers in our taxpayer-funded schools, and
beloved role models for our children. And this continuing PROBE does include scrutiny of our past and present school district employees, including Ron Malone. Can you count One, Two, Three, Four, Five, plus ME, makes Six (or half a dozen -- have it your way -- OK?)

Ongoing audit, could that be an investigation into the advertising signage on the score boards. Ask for some information on those programs from the business manager. That one smells like fish left out in the sun too long.
