I wish you had actually provided something of substance rather than blather. Whine, whine, whine, say nothing of import, and whine some more.Why is it that the posts regarding teachers reek of negativity. Teachers are greedy union thugs you say. Teachers don't work enough but get paid too much you say. Children fail because school testing standards are inadequate you say. The Board of Education however? The next risen Savior! They can provide children with more they say. They can provide the taxpayers with more they say. They know what's best for this community and your kids they say. If anyone questions this Board? Holy crap! Instant sin. Your name and the names of your family and friends will be thrown around topic. You will be accused of being disrespectful. A union activist. A disgrace. As an outsider you have to wonder what this Board thinks they can gain by condoning and helping to spread division in a community - all for the sake of our kids. I don't expect a response. I know all I will receive is accusations of being a whining teacher (I'm not) or a union activist. That's fine. I know my truth. I only wish the "so called" school leadership would be as transparent as they claim.
Please inform us, the great unwashed, what this board has done that is so horrible for our children?
Held people accountable for doing the jobs they are paid to perform?
Investing in a technology program that addresses the future and provides tangible results for the money spent?
Spent more on text books for our children?
Discovered the ruse that was pay to participate and reduced its costs by 30% and then gave the families that chose to participate another venue by which they could reduce it by another $100?
Hired a new Superintendent that is on the ball?
Hired a new Curriculum Director who is top notch?
Hired an actual Human Resources person who knows what she is doing?
Turned the cameras back on so the community could see what is going on and make up their own minds?
Pushed through a transparency program that now exists on our school website so everyone in the community can see what they see?
Etc, etc, etc
No which of those tasks do you wish to see undone?
