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.

Fire Everyone!

A Board Member offered this as a solution to the problems in Englewood School District:

We fire all teachers. They apply for their jobs again and we hire the ones that we think are effective.

After thinking about that, I have this to say.

In July, we abolished all Teaching Assistants and Secretaries. We did to the lowest paid employees what was suggested we do to teachers. Paraprofessional and Secretary positions were abolished. Some of them were forced to apply for their old jobs with less pay and no benefits. 

So how is that working out?
