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.

Someone Falls Short

In the discussion of tying teacher tenure and salary to student's test scores and overall achievement something has been constantly overlooked. No matter how unpopular the concept is, teachers are NOT the only ones directly responsible for student achievement.

Boards of Education, Superintendents, Principals, Coordinators, Supervisors, Financial Planners, Parent/Teacher Organizations, Accountants and everybody else fails everytime a child does.

So get it straight America.
Everytime a parent is unresponsive when a child needs homework help
someone falls short.
Everytime a teacher is unresponsive to the needs of individual children or their parents
someone falls short.
Everytime a principal is unresponsive to the needs of a teacher
someone falls short.
Everytime a Superintendent is unresponsive to a capable & dedicated principal
someone falls short.
Everytime a Board of Education is unresponsive to the needs of a
diligent and conscientious Superintendent
someone falls short.
Everytime a State Board of Education is unresponsive to the fact that school districts ignore their reports,
someone falls short.
