When there’s a stupid rainbow + flag posted on literally every surface of the public school’s English classroom, where the teacher’s “book corner” includes a sign with Kendi, DiAngelo, and more similar authors and a mug that says “No Justice No Peace”, and every bulletin board in every hall has more stupid rainbow – flags as well, you know you must never allow your beloved children to darken the door. Ever.
Vote conservative for your local School Board too.

Schools beg for more money, government says “you teach this” you’ll get more money. More money comes in, first to get it are the ones nearest the top. Bottom is last to get it – if there’s anything left. Was working here, there and the other place during the Bill ‘n Hill admin. Heard schools from Maryland to Texas, Florida to Washington telling kids “Bring in toilet paper. OUR school doesn’t have enough money to supply TP for students.” To me, THAT sounds like a planned, collusion, scam among all the schools.

I highly recommend Robert Pondiscio’s book How the Other Half Learns which investigates the Success Academy system, a NYC charter school system headed by Eva Moscowitz. She is relentless in holding the students, the teachers, and the parents to very high standards, and she gets excellent results.

It is not hard to figure out. It’s the Uniparty that actually controls the purse strings via legislation. We know that there are a whole lot of RINO’s, but I must wonder why there are no DINO’s? I think the answer is that the Uniparty only pulls one way, and there are few who can resist and stay in office!

Nothing will change until the resident/voters in these cities vote for candidates who will get the job done. That’s not me; if they don’t care why should I? My children were well educated in public schools; my grand daughter will be too (I hope). They will succeed.

Scott Ott is Spott Onn. Reading is the key.

If you can read and comprehend the written word, you can read and comprehend all of the examples in the math textbook. Or the science textbook, or the history textbook. But if you can’t read well, or at a grade level, you’re SOL PDQ TBMF

Now, if we could assign pronouns to use when adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing, ….. I wrote an article about this years ago where similar demographics of students in Washington DC and North Carolina had widely disparate per-student financial commitment, the former 4 times the latter (?$28,400 vs. $7,500?), and widely disparate test scores, near last compared to around seventh as I recall. The reason for the problem is accountability, especially from the parents, expectations of their children and their school system. My high school ended up majority black by my junior year and our valedictorian was black. We were… Read more »

$28,400 per student? Why oh Why does this not surprise me? Where I come from much of the cost of a school comes from property taxes on homes, and some extra funds come in from “developer fees”. Where does DC get it’s money to pay $28K per student? Keith, does it get some of it’s money from nearby Arlington?

No. I’m in arlington, so if DC gets any of our money it’s from any federal $ that gets equally siphoned from you

For reference, the Governor of Baltimore makes $180,000.

Governor of Maryland? Or mayor of Baltimore?

I looked up the Governor.
But here is an article from Jan of 2022 that shows the abject corruption in Baltimore and MD as whole relative to salaries of elected officials.
The Mayor of Baltimore was set to make 200k in 2022 and their is legislation calling for raises for elected officials if any Public Sector Union gets a raise.

That was an interesting article. Thanks for the link. I was just trying to be clear about who you’re talking about for the sake of accuracy. Some of the people I talk to repeat what I tell them as they assume I’ve done my due diligence and the information I present is reliable and accurate. Some of those salaries seem reasonable, some are way, way out of line. To me it seems a mistake to link city official’s salary to Public Sector Union pay increases. It smacks of gross corruption even if that’s not what’s going on … And I… Read more »

I saw that article on the superintendent and her contract. Thought I had posted that one as well but I guess it didn’t go through. So the Gov of MD makes around 180k A congressman from MD makes around 175k pending leadership bonuses. The mayor of Baltimore makes 200k. The head of the BPS makes in excess of 400k. How many assistant superintendents are there? Something is way out of whack. Oh and I found this pretty easily. Stop with the teachers are underpaid. When my wife was starting out, yep. Here in SW VA, finished pretty low. But… Read more »

… and looking at those salary tables it occurs to me that now we know where all those people with worthless gender studies degrees are finding jobs. As long as they can also get a teaching certificate to go with a Bachelor’s degree in any heteronormative attack field they can secure decent paying work as a teacher in Maryland. Very likely elsewhere too. Which explains the rash of young teachers who display gay pride flags and tear down the American Flag in their classrooms. Just for sh!ts and giggles I looked up the State Superintendent of Schools, Mohammed Choudhury’s bio.… Read more »

Holy Moly. My oldest daughter is 37. When she was in elementary school, and I was on “site council’ to be a parental voice on how to distribute $37K for the school year coming from the Feds (that’s 37K for the entire school!). I knew back then, that the per student spending at the elementary school my kid was at was $5400. $15K is crazy. And of the $5400 per kid, parents knew and complained that the lions share of that 54k was not making it’s way to the kids, the teacher or the supplies. Teachers were paying for supplies… Read more »
