Sorry "Charlie" but the best of the class on school district Policy matters was "rejected" in public school board meeting by Springboro schools superintendent, telling the community
that the school district needed input from only ONE parent on important school policy
matters.(and that ONE potty mouth mom chosen by the school superintendent is the worse of the class for SURE).

Thank you very much for reminding us about the unjustifiably pretentious in this community, like yourself, who, in utter ignorance, embrace the status quo, and stuff its pockets.

Obviously, Yuck and Yuck's wine-drinking classy collective ONES speak for the Many Voices of - ONE Future for Community Union Solidarity Against Our Children First.

When "these people" state that it takes a village they mean that the village must keep paying more and more taxes to satisfy the "contract" that has been negotiated with "The Union."

And this is the reason that every district keeps saying that they cannot pay their bills. They WHINE that they need MORE money to operate the district. Rarely are they specific
(nor honest) about the actual cost to taxpayers for a child's quality classroom education.
NEVER do they answer real questions, nor explain how the debt was incurred. They just professionally WHINE and are never accountable. They don't appreciate, nor welcome "We The People" who ask questions. They whitewash or sweep under the carpet each and every evil deed that is committed in "the business" and that's what union solidarity looks like in actions taken against our children first best interests.

Yeah, we may not be edu-mac-ated nearly as good as former BOE member Miller, but we do know a few thayngs! We know enough not to spend an extra $1 for each thang at DLM, just for the priv-ledge to be "seen". Unlike a certain naive con-stit-ewe-ency that was collectively fooled, badgered and hustled into voting for MSA, we know that school board member are NOT elected in order to serve teacher's unions. School board members are elected in order to serve CHILREN, FIRST! Once the childrens' needs are met, then, they serve the remainder of the community.

Was it not former board member, Don Miller, who violated board policy bylaws in public meeting by showing great disrespect to board member David Petroni, verbally attacking
a board member regarding a front page newspaper article regarding Anonymous Panther?

And was it not our union controlled BOEpresident, Charles Anderson, who refused to do his official duty and STOP this public bullying of his fellow board member? What a hypocrite is Charles Anderson, saying one thing as board president, but refusing to put those words into action by fulfilling his official duty?

From what we are learning about the OEA indoctrination of every child in our public schools with a union classroom teacher, many think all our children are learning too much propaganda promoting Youth Union Activists groups; fighting for Teachers Rights to advocate teachers' collective salaries/benefits to highest levels;, while wasting our school tax dollars dumbing down curriculum and lowering our standards for individual students' highest academic achievement potential by settling for "proficient?"
Doesn't proficient equal failure?
Isn't failure of the Union's Next Big Thing--unnecessary school levy number six--exactly the
direction in which our union controlled school board president and vice president, Charles Anderson and Ron Malone, are leading against our children first?....
Three votes at each board meeting ..... indebting taxpayers $5 million for unnecessary energy contract to Tremco; depleting our surplus funds through mismanagement and large raises; throwing the cost of the athletic department funding gap on the taxpayers backs even though the athletic department knowingly spent over budget; wasting taxpayers money on big costs of OSBA membership and OSBA financial consultants contracts; wasting taxpayers money on hiring Jeff Stec as outside facilitator to promote FEAR (false evidence appearing real) through community wide meetings.
Isn't the Many Voices Project vision and mission team really just out there in the community laying the foundation for the Union's Next Big Thing; presenting false budget crisis emotionally blackmailing taxpayers to vote yes to save the Union forces for the "sake of the Kids?"
You Betcha!.... the Union's Next Big Thing is presenting false budget crisis, emotionally blackmailing taxpayers to vote yes to save the Union forces for the "sake of the Kids!"

Just Wondering who is the old "wise owl" screening this Topix discussion blog who doesn't give a "Hoot" about the Truth or our great American Constitutional Rights of free speech and freedom of expression of differing Beliefs in our Values in Education?

What happened to the earlier Post # For the Record?
Who is the MoreRon who is stupid enough to think that the posting of public record of Board of Education meeting agenda showing our school employee Todd Petrey recommending Pay Raises to Athletic Coaches can be kept hidden from Inquiring Minds of our educated Springboro stakeholders?

So what's going to be the newest trend this fall for our Boro students?

No, not skinny jeans.
No, not tramp-stamps.
No, not belly button piercings.

The next big "Thing" is who (and what clique) has the nicest, fastest and most expensive LAPTOPS! Those district families that can't afford to shell out $400-$500 a piece for each child's laptop? Their kids will sadly wallow among the after-school "untouchables".

Welcome Back.... to MoreRon status quo failed practices, holding all students captive in the public school classrooms with a union teacher, gagging on greed for More taxpayers dollars, while refusing to work in the same vigorous manner as those taxpayers in the private sector!

Quite a lot of students from less from affluent families don't even utilize the free lunch program. What they're into is packing lots of really cheap junk food. This represents a local microcosm of America in that our "poor" are, by far, the Earth's fattest!.

Totally Agree! That's why some school districts are dropping the federal lunch program.
The Campbell County, Ky. district is opting out http://www.fortthomas.kyschools.us/districtNe...
The reason: Kids didn't like their healthful lunches.

The 2800 student district ( http://www.fortthomas.kyschools.us ) joins a small BUT GROWING number of school districts across the country ---mostly wealthy districts than can afford to forfeit the money--that have dropped out of the federal program in the wake of stricter nutritional standards.

Schools said students don't like the unsalted potatoes, low-fat cheese or the mandatory fruits and vegetables. They throw food away or decide not to eat at all.

Speaking of the Bluegrass State...

KY is ground zero for America's obesity problem.

If public school children in KY (and other states) have a propensity to throw good, heathful food in the cafeteria garbage can, it's very likely because they've not had exposure to healthful diets in their homes.

there you go again..... the ole "blame it on the parents and the home" and hey, let's pass a levy for the kids cause the government has to do it all ..... their way or the highway!

Just thinking that parents just might have time after getting home from work to shop and prepare healthier meals for their kids if the parents didn't then have to spend time helping the kids with the homework that could have been supervised by the teacher at school.

Isn't it true that the students from more affluent families can fatten the principal's fund
by feeding the vending machines dispensing really expensive sugary drinks; and what about those principal's fund raising antics of wooing a donation of food from the students' homes with bribes of selling second slices of pizza pie for just half the price?

Truth is, trying to justify those outlandishly high school lunch prices by promoting the myth that the government can legislate, regulate, and educate students to eat, live, and learn the union boot camp way (because the parents at home are too slothful in their duties) is nothing but symbolism giving government leaders false empowerment that they really can do it all for the kids.....if only those pesky parents would get out of the way and trust the Educators and "say yes the first time to school levies!" It's All About the Money!

Isn't it more likely that today's parents have had over-exposure to the liberal indoctrination of socialism government manipulation agendas projecting FEAR (false evidence appearing real) into our homes that we are not capable of raising our children properly without the micro-managing of the government agencies; and that a family cannot survive unless BOTH parents are in the workplace, paying taxes that are necessary to support the many local government agencies that are in turn, micro-managing our lives and our future?

Our families are now enslaved to the public school teachers, public safety workers in the firefighters/police officers unions, county welfare/social services union employees; and
our families well being and private property values are threatened by emotional blackmailing of "give us the money or somebody's gonna get hurt real bad!"

Could be that the Bluegrass State sees more clearly beyond the tunnel vision of "nobody cares for your child like the government do" thanks to their State requirement that all
kids get an eye exam from an outside eye doctor (not just the school nurse)??

Unfortunately, of the 60%(after talking to some other teachers, I believe it might be closer to 70%), most of us feel the School Board will take retribution-like action. Already, we sense spending controls will be memories and Boro residents will be asked to approve a levy to pay for the new Board's agenda.
