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.

This is the 2nd meet and greet your organization event sponsored by the Elks Lodge. I like Mr. Samuel Lee, Jr.'s description of the effort. He intimated that we all have so much in common that it is a good idea to learn to play nice in the sandbox. It is a great analogy, because we are divided by so many organizations and agendas that we neglect the work we need to do together.  This is an attempt to pool our efforts so we may all make changes towards success. Everyone is invited to bring business cards. The sandbox is large enough for everyone. We must all pull together to give time and attention to what is really important. Higher Expectations from everyone. The children. Education. The Message. The real estate. Our homes and lives. Where do we go from here?

The links below have been provided for those of you who do not know of Principal kafele's work. I invite you to take a thoroughly informative tour through this educator's life, career and creations all directed towards improving the lives of our children.  You may catch up on his many lectures and publications.
