Parent and taxpayer response

JUST SAY WHEN ...TO ANYONE SAYING YOU HAVE NO SAY IN YOUR CHILDREN'S EDUCATION. We are Citizens for Public School Education. We are Board Watchers. We want a Board of Education that follows the Law, because following the Law works for everyone. The purpose of this site is to help close the controversial Achievement Gap that is the subject in many educational arenas. Teachers are invaluable when dedicated individuals and are entrusted to encourage, nurture, and teach each child to achieve to the best of his/her individual abilities. Principals, Superintendents, Business Administrators, Support Staff, School Board Members, Attorneys and everyone else in the district must be dedicated to making certain that teachers have whatever they need in order to perform at their best. Teachers must be willing to go the extra mile like millions have done before them. This blog promotes an active, accurate & objective telling of history that includes ALL cultures and their literary, cultural and historical contributions to building America. We are Board Watchers.

One Parent's Statement to the Board of Education

All of our children are important including the latch key kids and the neglected. None should be forgotten. The talented tenth setup in the Englewood School System is not conducive to the student body in the Englewood School District as a whole. The talented tenth will always be talented. It is the mainstream, the majority of the population that needs to be brought up to the talented tenth. We must all open our eyes and ears. Many of our children are behind. Some are drowning. No child should be left behind. Segregation in the Englewood Public School system has to end. The Board researched and chose our current superintendent, Dr. Carlisle. If he fails, we must look to the board members and should hold them responsible. We cannot not accept another upheaval for our children. This needs to be our last superintendent for a long while. Teachers must be expected to work with their superintendent, the parents and our children. The public should expect our ELECTED board to work with the superintendent they chose for us. His failure is their failure.
Speak up parents.
Make them all Academy Prep.
Make them all AVID.
There is free tutoring available every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at the Liberty School, 3rd Floor. The teachers there are excellent. Take advantage of it. Don't accept anything less than the best for EVERY child in Englewood, not just a select few.
