Children are neglected BECAUSE OF THEIR PARENTS. You liberals want the schools to be the parents. Well, I'm not paying for that. The purpose of the public school system is to offer a basic education to anyone WHO IS WILLING TO LEARN. We can't afford to keep spending a fortune to raise the children of minorities and white trash whose parents don't care. Kick them out and educate the kids who want to learn. If Ohio goes to hell, it is because PARENTS HAVE CHOSEN NOT TO PARENT. And that is a choice. Personal responsibility - look into it.
Racist? Why even bother, but oh well. You only associate white trash with ALL minorities. So you must think that there are no minorities who want their children to do well? What about Condoleezza Rice? Colin Powell? Are they just great americans by accident? I imagine their parents had something to do with it.

I assume you meant "funding isn't a bottomless pit". They already have laid off people last year. They have not been hiring back principals (retire/rehire) like they did in the past. Also, they have stuck to their promises, so far, from the last levy.

Hilliard still does. Doug Lowery is principal at Memorial middle school. He's drawing his full pension and making over $114,000/year. Double dipping at its finest!

...maybe breaking levy promises, Superintendent Gene Harris said

Who on earth thought they would honor their promises in the first place ??? by the way, how many vacant district schools are there that the Columbus school board refuses to rent ??

Let each school compete. Successful schools will sour, the non-successful? Let them fail and let them close.....Harris is a joke. Why do we have such a high tab for security in these schools? Where are the parents?

Why are you guys so bitter??? I'm sorry about the cuts and I can't stand gene Harris. ALL da crap that woman put me through! But I don't blame all the parents. MY mom tried her hardest with me and my friends. It takes a village to raise a child. TWo parents can't do it all alone.
