I agreed with him! I think all BOE members should be highly qualified accordin gto the definitions and standards set by the state.
And he's still arguing with himself. What's worse is that he cannot seem to stop contradicting himself either.
Hey Flyer staff
Let me give you a little clue. That new tag line you are hearing from the SCS super, "district wide rezoning" is a BIG DEAL.
And pay attention to the fact that SCS will no longer share space with the ASDs or charters. That's going to hurt dear Willie. You want to bet there is some activity in Nashville since the charters plan on suing the state over paying for space in buildings already designated for public schools.
I'm OK with hiring highly qualified board members. The state defines highly qualified in very specific terms. I think that only two members of the current board meet that definition to be highly qualified.
For myself - I'm highly qualified in several areas.
But its ok to hold me and 60% of the teachers who do not have tests responsible for the outcomes of children that never step foot in our classrooms.
They are at the top. They too should be held responsible. They set policy. Not me. They determine funding. Not me. They make the critical decision that determine how my job is performed. They should be just as responsible as I am.
merit pay just like the rest of us
When they can demonstrate their contribution to the overall improvement of the academic achievement of all children in the district, I will be happy to support a pay raise for all their hard work. Unitl then, as long as the district scores are Ds and Fs, then their pay should at the very least be frozen.
Show me where I mentioned race.
THAT'S YOUR LINE.
That is called projection and you are guilty as charged of calling me names to fit your agenda again.
And since you are such an astronomical mind reader, please demonstrate where I said that was my opinion. I presented the argument to Grove's belief. I never said it was mine.
Your attributed the belief to me. That makes you judgmental. And hypocritical.
You are an admitted liar. IB makes no distinction in district size. You are obviously grasping at straws when you have NO CLUE to how IB works.
Why do you think SCS already said they would make Gtown an optional school. They have no AP and they won't start any time soon. So what is the optional going to be based off of.
The only hope of saving Ridgeway's IB program is if Gtown retains GHS. Keep living in denial. That got you a long way on the MSD issue.
SCS has a very slim chance of keep ing any Gtown kids. If SCS gives up Gtown IB, SCS will have no Gtown kids in the program, Gtown schools will be over crowded upon the start of the MSD. SCS would loose some of the unincorporated kids to private schools also. GHS will be HIGHLY under utilized. That will be a problem in court. Keep playing checkers.
Keep talking with Kevin Woods. He's bought and paid for. He is very likely to loose that seat. He's not winning any friends when he states he will take the ridiculous pay raise that Ritz is proposing, he wants to make purchases without any idea of the real problems. He's just as much out of his element as Hobson. So you really think he's going to make a decision that is financially unsound in keeping Ridgeway IB over Gtown. Now you just being funny.
Besides, I've viewed the standards for both schools for admittance to the IB program. Gtown would really have to lower their standards.
