Hey There You Anti-School Politicians with your mouth below your belt! Watch the language on this blog!

Don't you know that you are supposed to follow the role model of Big K and take it to the boardroom in front of the TV cameras! Then, our Springboro School Superintendent will "appoint" you collective minded ones for S-U-R-E to the Superintendent's District Policy Committee! That's the way Board Policy is handled way down low in the Boro in our union controlled Board room, under the Majority Leadership of Charles Anderson, Ron Malone, and David Stuckey.

If the writer of "Anti-school politicians" is a Boro Alumni, don't forget to stop running your mouth long enough to say thank you to a SEA union classroom teacher for instilling in your mind and heart such a great appreciation of "your fellow Americans!"

Mr. Anderson was not "donating", he was buying greater internet presence for his business to enhance his personal wealth.

When BEI donated the use of a much needed trailer to the track teams to properly store the team's equipment, BEI did so by giving up a revenue stream that reduced their personal wealth. They did this because it was the right thing to do and they had the means to accomplish the necessary goal for the track team. No one at BEI is in anyway affiliated with the track team, so BEI had no underlying ulterior motive other than just helping out where they could for the betterment of the program and the community.

The family that runs BEI is not alone, there are many instances of others aiding our children, programs, and schools in many unsung ways that do not garner a shout out from the district for purchasing advertising for the Board of Education's business.

Sorry Charlie, but you took an opportunity to selflessly help others and turned it into an opportunity enhance your personal wealth by bribing children to enhance your web presence.

The last refuge of those with no points left to debate, name calling.

"Let us take a patriot, where we can meet him; and, that we may not flatter ourselves by false appearances, distinguish those marks which are certain, from those which may deceive; for a man may have the external appearance of a patriot, without the constituent qualities; as false coins have often lustre, though they want weight."

Still true these many years after Samuel Johnson penned them.

Can you say Ron Malone?

A man who would tell another person to sell anyone else down the river to enhance his own personal reputation.

For instance our children's future for the sake of a hollow approbation that he knows means nothing.

Lest we forget it was Ron Malone who according to his peers at the Warren County Education Service Center during their audits of Ron's program of studies at the high school noted:

Why the School Should Continue to Address This Key Practice. According to Table 8, only 43 percent of SHS students have completed the HSTW-recommended curriculum (Ohio Core), a 34 percent decrease from 2008. Although interviews indicate that this sharp decrease is the result of changes in the process for coding transcripts, versus changes in curriculum, the decrease is still noteworthy. Only 60 percent of SHS students completed four credits of CP English, a decrease of 33 percent from 2008. There was a five percent drop between 2008 and 2010 with 77 percent of students completing four credits of CP mathematics. Eighty percent completed three credits of CP science, a decrease of 12 percent from 2008. Only 55 percent of SHS students completed at least one concentration, 30 percent below the HSTW goal.

SHS still offers general level classes (Algebra 1A and 1B, physical science, US History, and World History). Thus, not all students experience a college-preparatory curriculum. Documents provided to the TAV Team indicate that contrary to the HSTW philosophy, SHS BELIEVES THAT OFFERING LOW LEVEL CLASSES IS IN THE BEST INTEREST of students. This belief, however, was NOT SUBSTANTIATED BY RESEARCH OR DATA.

Who drove that horse, the compliant, unquestioning school boards of the past who acted on Ron Malone's recommendation during that 2008-2010 period?

Or the author of those recommendations whose personal pursuit of phony awards and approbations cheated untold children, parents, and taxpayers of the education they were promised?

Lest we forget.....

According to the DDN, who was it who interrupted his student during OGT classroom time, requesting that student to email a protest against Board authority; which is clearly a violation of student code?

Could it be none other than our insanely popular with the SEA Union Activists, former SHS Principal Ron; who now sits as Vice President of the Board of Education, using MSA popular majority rule to re-instate status quo past failed practices?

What would Springboro Board of Education Vice President, Ron Malone, do IF the tables were turned on him and the current Board President, and a community wide protest was launched against their Union First Leadership Representing Only Recommendations from the SEA Staff; protesting that they step down in the Board Room and let the Children First Leadership BOE elected officials take the positions of President and Vice President of the Springboro Board of Education, doing what's right for our school children and community, making tough decisions in the best interest of our students, even when it isn't the insanely popular thing to do?

If your busy work schedule and priority family responsibilities prevent you from attending the Springboro School Board of Education public meetings, seeing firsthand how a union controlled Board is wasting our school tax dollars, then you can go to www.mvcc.net and check on TV/video service, then click on TV playback schedules, and choose "eatv21; then you can choose the week and view the playback times. Also, you can check out the school district website for postings of board videos.

That's so funny! do you mean like union classroom teacher Molly Wray helping herself to our students' ID's to help promote the school board election of two retired educators, Ron Malone and David Stuckey and one old has been a former school board member, Charles Anderson?
Do you really think our union controlled Board of Education's vote to reward Molly Wray with a supplemental contract as mentor to our students will "squelch" future violations of our students' privacy from being repeated by our union classroom teachers, who feel they are above the rule of the authority of laws that are meant to protect all citizens?
The Boro BOE certainly has shown a lot of appreciation for this district's teachers.

The BOE shows their appreciation by negotiating 6% raises. What percentage of the rest of the community receives 6% annual raises?

Teachers receive FREE exercise classes.at Springboro Intermediate.
Many of the rest of us pay annual dues for our families for Coffman YMCA or some other fitness club.

Teachers receive "continuing contracts" which means they're tenured; they cannot be discharged from their employment except for the most serious of offenses, such as theft.
Almost every other mode of work is regarded as employment-at-will, jobs which may be terminated at any time, by either the employer or the employee, for virtually no reason.

Tenure in public education has been proven to be harmful to student success.

It's important for this community that the district openly celebrate Springboro's group of extremely talented, caring teachers. At the same time, it's equally important that administrators and the BOE delve this praise toward teachers who've EARNED this praise, recognition and reward.

Around this district, there are a number of teachers who should not be teaching.

Some teachers have been around for decades, know fully well that they're tenured, and know it's next to impossible that they could be dismissed. The guarantees of tenured employment is reflected in the lackluster way many of them go about the daily rituals of instructing children. Certain other teachers should not be teaching children any longer because they're "burnt-out" and need to find another occupation . Still others lack vital communication tools, which are of course completely indispensible for all sorts of classroom interaction. Then, there's out there who use Boro alumni for personal gain, or as political pawns.

In recent weeks the Springboro BOE has made a gesture toward older students by inviting increased student involvement in the board room. I think this is a fabulous idea. However, increased student involvement in the board room should have ramifications other than just students learning about debate, how the BOE works, etc.

If SHS AND Jr High students are being invited into the board room, they ought to have the priveledge of being polled, anonymously,(by a neutral outside party) regarding the overall effectiveness of EACH AND EVERY ONE of their teachers.

Older students (16,17 and 18 year olds, particularly) should have a general understanding of the type of community input and debate that's neccessary in order for boards of education to consciously make / amend policy. In other words, Springboro school board meetings are, natural real-life extentions of what many Boro students are attempting to learn; board meetings should be a complement to government classes.

In regard to the distinct possibility of intentional political indoctrination occuring with students of this still somewhat immature age, ensuring a neutral, unbias atmosphere at each meeting is the responsiblity of the BOE president, as well as with the superintendent.

However, currently, unbiasness is not being accomplished. Currently, many Boro's students are being successfully indoctrinated into Ron Malone's cult of insane popularity. Other Boro students currently are being blind-sided by Bindeman's unapologetic pro-socialist ideals.

Education oppurtunity is there for students in the board room if they are patient and have initiative. Danger for our children lies wherever there are uneven, compromised playing fields.

In recent weeks the Springboro BOE President, Charles Anderson and VP Ron Malone
have wasted their opportunities in the board room to make good on their oath of office to uphold and protect the Constitutional rights of all citizens under their leadership.....

And that is a thing that needs to be addressed in this school district by We The People demanding that Charles Anderson and Ron Malone step down from leadership of the board,
and elect Jim Rigano and David Petroni as President and Vice President of the Springboro Board of Education.

Just as the true history of a man through official documents, written by third party observers, concludes that our former SHS principal, Ron Malone, ran the high school like a union shop, making up classes with scant demand to ensure employment for those whose skills were not in demand....... did you know that:

Puppet Master Malone is now using the BOE President, Charles Anderson, to continue his past failed practices, running the Springboro School Board of Education political agenda like an SEA Negotiating session, demanding security of lifetime teacher employment contracts and no restrictions on Parents Gift Giving to Teachers; all the while endangering the strength of our free speech Constitutional rights by proposing policy changes forbidding Springboro citizens from asking question to our school government BOE elected officials, during public participation in our Board of Education business meetings and work sessions?

Yet, in recent public board meetings, SchoolBoardPresident Charles Anderson voiced Ron Malone's politics of personal destruction against a fellow board member, who dared to expect the courtesy of student identification in an email sent by Anonymous Panther to a Board of Education elected official.

Stay Alert Voters!

It was only four months ago that our newly elected Board of Education members were sworn into office (January 2014) joining our two senior board members in their swearing in to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States of American.

How can it be that under the majority vote leadership of Charles Anderson, Ron Malone, and David Stuckey that we now have an anti-constitutional philosophy political agenda being promoted in our school board business meetings, such as witnessed with the Second reading of board policy changes to public participation of Citizens in our school board business meetings, as our school superintendent argues that a move to more structure is necessary for kids safety sake?

How can it be that under the leadership of Mr. Charles Anderson, that our local school government elected officials and school employees are under the Rule of Oligarchy,
government dominated by an SEA/ Union Activists' controlled board room?

How is the argument of MSA that the popular Majority vote of the 2013 school board election should over-rule our Founding Fathers wisdom of super Majority vote on Board Policy changes upholding and protecting our Constitutional rights?

The more I see of Charles Anderson as leader of the Board of Education, the less I see of a fit role model of an elected official of our local school government protecting the Constitutional Rights of all our Citizens.

Can we expect student involvement n the board room any time soon asking Charles Anderson, Ron Malone, David Stuckey: "Which One of You is Lying" as was witnessed in the March 2012 board meeting of PrinciPAL Ron Malone's community wide politics of personal destruction against only three of the five board members?

Just in case you haven't been watching what's happening now in the boardroom, actions being played out by Anderson/Malone/Stuckey speak louder than the lies they spoke during their campaign for election.

In the DDN October 17, 2013 acticle "Two tickets vying for Springboro school board"
Anderson, Stuckey and Malone said that, if elected they would join the board without private agendas. "We're not going in to replace anybody or make wholesale changes," Stuckey said. "We have no agendas."

Politically Speaking: Liar Liar Pants of Fire to Anderson, Malone and Stuckey in the Board room, where the first action taken was to dis-respect precedence of the board to elect as president for the new year, the vice president of the former year. No Way that the "greedy
for control" insanely popular with the SEA, MSA team would forfeit their private agendas of Union First rule over Children First.

Check out the board meeting videos TV broadcasts of Springboro Board of Education Meetings and "Look Who's Lying Now."

Truth be told, no one's being fooled regarding the source of inspiration for "some" students to attend board meetings. That source is based in union-friendly liberalist ideals, and often can be seen seated in the board room audience attached to the hip of a SHS student, who (ahem) "requested involvement".

Folks, there's only one way to spell it...
