Toledo in spotlight again, albeit a small spotlight

Toledo made the news again in a story broadcast on 10/12 by Rush Limbaugh - although nothing like the current flap over a uniform worn by a congressional candidate.

The Rev. John C. Jones, Pres. of the Greater Toledo Urban League, will be my guest on Monday to talk about Toledo Public Schools.

TPS's Rhetoric and Reality: Coffee with the Fords, presents Lisa Sobecki TPS board member.

"Coffee with the Fords" presented an interesting guest today, none other than Toledo Public School Board Vice President Lisa Sobecki (soccer mom, democratic something or other and Boy Scout leader) discussing the upcoming levy that will put more money into the coffers of TPS.

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


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.

You're the new TPS Superintendent. Which high school do you close?

I drove by Scott High School today and it felt like the lights went out.
