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.

Our Schools Are In Crisis: Where Do Broken Promises Go?

Promises, Promises, Promises
The Referendum of 2004. Has it been closed out yet? Did we get everything we paid for? Are they ready to shove another one down our throats? Take a look at  the referendum of 2004 and refresh your memories. Keep in mind that some of the same people that are glad ragging each other about their accomplishments in facilities construction and maintenance are the ones that sold us on the referendum and the promises.
They knew what the Community wanted, so they promised it to them and then proceeded to do exactly what they wanted.

"The Englewood Public School district can only issue objective factual information. We trust the following facts will help Englewood Residents make informed decisions when voting on Tuesday, March 9th."

I was one of those voters on Tuesday, March 9, 2004. I voted for the referendum, because I believed the things promised in the referendum. I was raising my sister's 2 children and knew first hand that the promised improvements would make life better for my niece and nephew. This document was saved as many others have been saved. We have not forgotten. The people of Englewood must begin to remember the many promises. It is our only salvation. Read the FACTS as presented by the Board of Education and see for yourselves how much each homeowner paid per month for the promises in the Referendum of 2004. We don't need Dr. Carlisle or the people who were responsible for these promises shoving anymore garbage down our throats about facilities. We want the promises that were broken to be repaired. When we vote on April 17, 2012, we must remember the promises that have been made over the years. There comes a time when broken promises become plain old fashioned lies.

Grieco is a large, beautiful school, but how many of you have actually enjoyed all of those added recreational features that were promised?
