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:
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.

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.
I don't know wolfman personally but receive occassional e-mails from him, and of course see his posts on here and elsewhere. I'm used to his disjointed rantings on various topics and ignore most of them but lately he seems to be reaching a breaking point of some sort.
Vote no in issue 3. Vote No on ALL !
Or it Will cost you $$$. And our strees will have even more pot-holes !
The streets are bad enuff. If we vote for moving funds from the capital improvments fund to the general fund, the streets will be Even Worse ! VOTE NO !
And Vote no on the school levy too! Way to many taxes, and there all to darn high already!
Larry Sykes on the Board dysfunction, Larry Sykes off the Board cooperation, Larry Sykes on the Board dysfunction
Anybody notice a pattern here?
Another TAX. Where does it end? We are not asking them to do with less. Just NO MORE! We already have to many taxes. And there all to darn high. NO MORE.
VOTE NO on May 4th. The Toledo 3/4 % pay check tax !
Taxes Are Like Drugs, Just Say NO !
Hay, Toledo. Call your City Conunsel Members and Tell Them NO more Taxes or fees ! If they do, Don't re-Elect them !!! Better call all of them and the Mayor too. Or we will get taxed and fee'ed to death. Make cuts.
On Saturday, March 13, 2010 at 9:00AM there will be a "special board meeting" at the Thurgood Marshall Building. The topic to be discussed is the "Superintendent Search."
Journal talks about how the cuts will effect the central city the hardest and why they are taking their case to a different audience.
They propose shutting down the mostly black Libbey High School, ''consolidating'' two central-city elementary academies that serve a nearly all African American enrollment, and killing off a unique high school whose mostly black students earn college credits.
Repost from Toledo Talk: and an email about the importance.

TPS Board sorts through the big issues:
1) Budget and Cost Cutting – Board will be meeting on March 3rd at 5:30 to review the list of budget cuts. Then they will hold a public hearing surrounding those cuts on March 15 or 17 at Start High School. Cuts will be adopted at the March 23rd meeting.
Given this was sent to me from someone at the production house, it is missing the disclaimers, the intro and the ending. I am told the intro segment will say, "Don't let things get ugly." Then the normal exit segment, "Vote for the Toledo Public School levy in May" with the normal campaign committee disclaimers at the end. Makes the point doesn't it?
