Fire Janel Ryan

Its time to Fire Janel Ryan for her bad job as superintendent........ under her leadership, Farmington schools dropped to 3rd in San Juan County, behind Aztec (#2), and CCSD (#1). Time for the school board to wake up and fire her incompetent behind. Farmington schools and property values will suffer because of her and the school board.

Happy Pioneer Day Kirtland, I'm sitting on 6400 getting ready to watch the parade. My goal today is to say hello to as many Children First people as possible.

I think it is pretty impressive what the current administration has done, they have ignored all the old worn out stereotypes of education on the reservation and have done their job and started educating our children. The test scores, school grades and graduation rates show that very clearly.

Those in Kirtland whom took their children to Farmington for a "better" (whiter) education, said because of their children weren't in CCSD the scores will go down. It looks like the opposite happened.

In addition to firiing Janel Ryan, it's also time to fire Bloomfield Superintendetn John Rasor for taking Bloomfield Schools to a new low. Bloomfield property values will suffer even further for his failure. Time for the Bloomfield school board to WAKE UP and fire his behind. Wake up voters!!!

CCSD needs to take back the troublemakers and children of Children First radicals. Children Firsters need to get out of Farmington Schools because they obviously hurt our school district and caused our test scores and school grades to drop. Janel Ryan and the school board need to acitvely enforce the school boundaries revoke any waivers for the carpet baggers and send them back to CCSD. Property values are going to take a hit this year because of Janel Ryan's incompetence and Farmington School District allowing Kirtland crazies to enroll their children in our district.

Whhammer...... you seem like one of the backwards and uneducated cross burning Kirtland rednecks who can't seem to believe that CCSD, Levinski, Tso, Kaspar, Pandora Mike and persons you hate actually are doing a very good job. You must find it soooooo unbelievable that reservation schools and Native American children can best the white kids. This ain't no conspiracy and the numbers and school grades don't lie.

Speaking about property taxes and property values, the incredibly good job that CCSD is doing, especially in the Kirtland area, are going to increase property values. Keep up the good job CCSD. Speaking of which, Janel Ryan, John Rasor and Carpenter all need to be fired for leading their districts to new lows.

So which direction?

San Juan County is showing that the greater proportion of whit students the possibility of a lower ranked school and district.

To take your logic and the Kirtland logic about the schools to its result leaves some funny conclusions.

Kirtland truth - Don Levinski and the current ccsd administration are a bunch of idiots and can't do anything right. The district will fall apart because the Indians are in charge.(Especially without Randy and Byron's guidance)

CCSD reality - scores and graduation rates have gone up

Why? I'll spell out two reasons and you can choose for yourself which one is right. If you can't decide go ask Randy Manning maybe he can tell you how to think.(This is for you whammer, and friends)

1) The families that pulled out their children from CCSD to send them to other districts that hey felt were better, actually helped CCSD by removing a large number of children whom were either in the lower quartile, or were we're very high needs students, that required a lot of educational resources and time.

The end result was CCSD scores going up.

By using this logic Kirtland can continue to think that the CCSD administration is incompetent. The only problem with this scenario is it is saying the Children First Kirtland kids who moved out are stupid.

The funny part people on this board said the opposite would happen.

2) the current CCSD administration is actually doing what the Navajo led board asked them to do improve the schools. And all the doom and gloom that Children First and the Mannings were saying is completely FALSE, and a bunch of lies.

Janel Ryan and the Farmington School District have NO EXCUSE for dropping to 3rd in San Juan County. Farmington has it all.... good jobs, parks, businesses, more churches per capita than any other district, good neighborhoods. All because of her and the joke of a school board, our schools are suffering and property values will take a hit. Wake UP FARMINGTON!!!
