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.

In the Absence of Equity...


Is there conflict of interest?


Recently, the President of our Parent Advisory Council questioned the lack of equity on Dwight Morrow High School Campus.

She asked the Board of Education again why
there is little or no equity on the campus.

She pointed out the fact that some Board Members
have been there long enough to understand how
the question should be answered.

There was silence.

Two Board members have been forbidden from voting
on any and all personnel issues. Our Board President
took credit for eliciting this Advisory Decision from
the School Ethics Commission. He said  that a parent 
had asked a question about "conflict of interest" during 
the Candidates forum.

5 Members of our Board of Education have children
who attend our Vocational & Technical Program
at the high school. 

Why is it not a conflict of interest for these same 5 Board Members
to vote on issues concerning the Vocational & Technical Program?

On Thursday, November 21, the Board voted unanimously to approve
5 field trips spending nearly $6,000.00 for students in the Vocational 
and Technical Program. No trips were presented or approved from 
students in our Comprehensive High School.

The little ones from Quarles were charged 11 bucks a head 
and they will be traveling to Paramus, NJ on a bus we own. 
So the district could not pay the $11 admission for the 55 pre-schoolers?

Oh, the price of gas, so exorbitant.

Equity is a Half Eaten Pie...!

And there are no more plates or chairs at the table...

Where do we begin...?

I have not posted in a long while. I have been accused of only publishing negative stories and "gotcha" articles and information.

I stopped publishing. Writer's block set in and I started to question myself. That is over

                                                      How are the children?
