TPS

I looked at the cutbacks TPS is proposing to balance the budget and all I see is cuts
to the school children. I see no salary cutbacks, pension cuts, health care reductions, administrative staff reductions etc. All the cuts are directed at the school children. Namely, cut sports, close schools, increase charges for lunches, cut out bus service for HS children.,
Its readily apparent the Union is running the show. I heard from a TPS teacher that the levy TPS wants to pass is really for financing the teaches pension fund which is woefully underfunded. Further, TPS is going to try to get another levy passed towards the end of the year. TPS is also directing the funding of the levy at the taxpayers that have a job, anyone retired, on welfare or on disability will not have to pay the increase in tax. No doubt this is to gather support from the seniors who naturally vote in great numbers. The poor Toledo worker are going to take it in rear again. The only consolation they have is to move out of Toledo for greener, less expensive pastures.

No votes yet

Did you expect the extortionists to threaten to cut off their own fingers for ransom?

No...they wont sacfrifice a dime nor a second of their day...

It's all for the children you know...

TPS would really hate to have bad things happen to your kids.....maybe you might want to consider voting for that tax...

Just sayin'....

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

fat finger double post.

...and the parents decide to move to better school systems we'll then see a reduction in the TPS teaching and administrative staff.

OSEB, you must have missed noticing that over 1000 people leave Toledo each year, for good. According to the American Community Survey -- conducted monthly by the U.S. Census Bureau and not doubted by anyone except insane mayors with a huge conflict of interest -- the city of Toledo now sports the same population as it did in 1944.

So ... where's this reduction, fella?

I say forget about TPS-let the village educate 'em!

you stopped reading before you got to the part about the 34 teachers, 6 administrators, and 5 clerks that will lose their jobs as part of the cuts?

i have sent well over 20 messasges about many issues to the tps board and this is the only response i have gotten back:

I am behind in answering my email. I will try to be more timely.

most of the peopel in my block are not supporing any levey because tps can't do something as simple as communicate with us.

we (our block) is working hard in not giving tps any supprot until they give us some answers and some communication. so far only a few older couples are holding out but every day i talk to them and show them more and more of what tps is donig wrong and about the many lies from tps so called leaders.

If

If you got those same people who are not voting for the levy to vote FOR someone else on the TPS school board you may get better results.

at least you are getting a response. I have asked for 5 months what has happened to $225,000 allocated to the Discipline Committee.

Because they are not forthcoming with answers to many other questions involving students, our organization files charges with OCR and ODE. That is the only way they listen, along with saying NO to any levy.

I doubt a no vote to a levy will stop TPS trying again as they think, I believe, like the 0bama adin does on health care, a rejection by the people, really means yes.
