This is what happens when politicians interfere in the workings of the Public Schools. You know who you are. Politicians and those who keep you in office, who have been meddling with no experience in education or know how since the sixties, should stand down. The downturn in the District came with you. So stop it.
It is time to let the professionals do the jobs they were hired to do. Those of us who have been watching since the late 1960s know that you have high expectations for some and NO EXPECTATIONS for others. The un-certified staff and all the rest fall on your shoulders. You Politicians created the GAP that has made a focus school of our high school. Your "Outsource" tactics have added to the crippling of the District.
Have a retreat. Give the Superintendent some viable goals and objectives for the School District, making student achievement of all students priority. Stop stacking the deck like the Trumpish Mayor has done with the Democratic Municipal Committee. Leave the Superintendent alone and let him succeed or fail. Stop being Trumpish Huttles, both of you. If he does not achieve the goals, then let him go. Your con man minion should stand down in his attempts to run the District. In the last 15 years, he and his buds have run it into the ground. You know it. We know it.
This is also what happens when School Board Members operate as an employment agency for friends and relatives. When School Board Members have been in control for nearly 15 years and run the schools, the blame rests on them and the ones who put them in place and keep them there. They and you are the ones responsible. It is all part of the dumbing down of the District. Our children can learn, but it seems that you can't.
When few have faith that ALL children can learn, strange and sometimes illegal shit goes on to make the District look good. Englewood is suffering from a serious identity crisis. (Teach the children in front of you and stop favoring the ones you import into our failing school system.) This is embarrassing in so many ways. It is also infuriating, because the real culprits are sitting pretty without a single blemish. The Board of Education is not innocent in this. They and the Politicians who pretend they take no part and are autonomous are the Custodians of failure. How many of their children are sitting in Saturday classes? Supporters of the Board leaders are not innocent in this. You know who you are and it is time to back the F off of our Public School district. Any child who has not done what is required should be retained. Any child... Any adult responsible should be dismissed. It is as simple as that ...
And how are the children?.....The headline says it........Stop throwing our children under the bus!
