TPS Pulls A Carty..Oh Look We Found 824,000 Dollars...

Toledo Public Schools says we found 824,000 dollars that wasn't recorded. Hell no it wasn't recorded until they heard about an audit. But wait lets here what McCaskey, Purhrt, Pinkslip, and Wolfie have to say before they vote for the 7.8 million dollar levy that the TPS wants so they can continue to have accounting irregularities..

How much should teachers be paid?

Tagged:  

I am curious what others think about this. With TPS in a budgetary crisis, a lot of talk recently about public pensions, and the beginning of a new school year fast approaching, I wonder what the general public thinks the average teacher salary should be. Consider a Toledo Public Teacher $40, $60, $80? More? Less?
What is the right wage?

Does It Really Matter Who is the TPS Superintendent?

It really does not matter who is the superintendent of the Toledo Public School System as long as none is willing to stand up against the TFT and the Lawrences. None of the entities that could make a difference in the school system is willing to engage the TFT in a battle to make any changes benefiting students or even their own rank and file.

They would rather lay off fellow union brother's and sister's than take a larger paycut that would not impact them any more than people working in the private sector have been impacted.

Next TPS Superintendent

from WTOL

The board interviewed Deborah Hunter-Harvill, the former superintendent of a school district in Flint, Michigan. She says she wants to help lead the charge for school reform in Toledo.

REALLY? Has any board member checked the status of Flint Schools lately? Would she bring more of Obama style Hope and Change reform to TPS. One only has to look at Flint to see what Harvill's school reform has brought them:

Shut Down Lincoln Academy for Boys

WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING

Toledo Public Schools is going down a path of destruction that will destroy and continue the “Conspiracy to Destroy Black Boys.” This is being accomplished by turning a neighborhood school (Martin Luther King Elementary) into an all boys academy and incorporating it into Lincoln Academy for Boys.

TPS Board Members lack of public communication

Just got off the phone with TPS board member Bob Vasquez. We (family, friends, block) have been trying to have communication with the TPS board since November 2009 having sent some 153 e-mail messages and well over 30 phone calls. After some 6 months and after the levy failed then they want to finally meet with us. Can you belive that? We begged for communication and a meeting long before the levy vote and they wait until after the levy fails to see that we did have power and now they want to meet with us.
