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.

Are Our Schools In Crisis?: What is Title I?

Title I -  is a federally funded program designed to improve the academic achievement of poor and disadvantaged children in elementary and secondary schools. It originated with the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.   Englewood New Jersey gets it's share of Title I funds. We must begin to monitor how the money is being spent. They would not qualify for these funds if low income families did not live here. Why do the low income families NOT benefit from federal monies meant to help their children?

Values Education - Transmission of values, such as respect for others, civility, empathy, and fairness. Also known as character education or ethics education.    You will not find any values education in Englewood. Englewood elite have shown themselves to be of poor character and have generally demonstrated an ignorance of ethics.

Englewood is a Title I school district. This means that it receives a large sum of money that is meant to help the children of low income families get the same educational advantages as everyone else. In other towns, it is well documented that this money is used to maintain remedial Reading and Math programs for economically disadvantaged children.

Where is Englewood School District's Title I Reading Program? Attend the June 16, 2011 School board meeting at 8pm Liberty School. Find out why this program no longer exists in Englewood.

Where is Englewood School District's Title I Math Program?

Where will you find graduates of Dwight Morrow High School concentrated if they attend college?
Check one close to home and you will see that they are concentrated in the Remedial Reading and Math classes. Englewood's education system has failed them. It sent them off without the tools they needed to survive in college or in the world of work. What type of VALUES EDUCATION ARE WE IMPARTING TO OUR CHILDREN? WHY IS ENGLEWOOD SYSTEMATICALLY NOT EDUCATING ALL CHILDREN?

Did you read today's Record? The surrounding towns have Academies and they are integrated into the general population. They had one set of King & Queen of the Prom in each school. They had one set of Valedictorins in each school. Check the papers for yourselves. Englewood looks very bad right about now.

New Jersey State Department of Education, are you listening? Are you reading the newspapers? Englewood Parents & Students need your help.

UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FAIL!
