"Concerned Horde of Citizens"
then as now
June 10, 2006
"When board members don't observe process that is when they
deserve to be recalled."
Mr. Harpold is correct. His dissertation regarding the current
situation is correct as well.
There is important key information regarding the last "Recall"
of school board members the public should be reminded of. The
charge of not following policy was "Alleged" not proven.
The recourse available to the
five of us members to this "Alleged" charge was in
Superior court. Collectively we did not warrant the desire to
spend the estimated $25,000.00 to hire legal talent for what
we knew was trumped up charges. Safe to say we know we did nothing
wrong and we, as well as this reformed band of popenjays under
the guise of "Concerned Horde of Citizens" then as
now, know what they did was skullduggery. That is the past, but
one learns from history. Hopefully.
Tragic, still today, with exception of the brave few primary
grade teachers continuing to teach Spalding reading instruction,
the remaining primary grades are continuing flawed instruction
resulting in dismal results. The five recalled board members
were about change to address the failure of the educational system
regarding primary grade students succeeding with reading too
or above grade level. the system would not tolerate change. We
had to be eliminated pronto.
In my opinion parents with primary age student(s) would do their
children best by seeking those primary teachers using Spalding.
At the very least, parents should ask to view their child's potential
teachers track record on reading and math scores.
Interesting to note that the same players that succeeded in derailing
our efforts to eliminate Academic Child Abuse, the true reason
behind the recall, are forming up once again.
Should be again fairly easy for this bunch to obtain in-house
free legal assistance to establish another "alleged"
