Lorain City Schools- what will it take Lorain?- the emails

It is apparent to me just how uncomfortable people are to “speak” – it is a fact – and considering on this December 7th – I am reminded how dear the cost paid for the right to speak freely and yet …………………

However, I have put down some of the questions / observations that have come directly to my personal inbox.

1.

– ‘sharing’ rather than ‘reporting’ to the public honestly about all general fund monies and how they are spent. Sharing with the public regarding all grants, and why they ‘match’ goals for our school district…if not apply for one that does. (in order to that the district should have ‘clear’ goals- first, then apply for grants and have programs that support those things).

2.

This ‘could’ be a time to start over and ‘rebuild’- honest dialogue , painful though it may be .

3.

I have been informed there are “empty classrooms in some locations ( Masson?) while some teachers have no teaching space- if true, someone from Charleston needs to walk through these building and take inventory.

4.

When the ‘cuts’ occur how will this happen. Will some programs be ‘gutted’ to save others in their ‘entirety’?

5.

Will special community interest groups continue to have favoritism?

6.

Shouldn’t we try to instill a “love of reading” rather than reading to a test?

7.

The schools keep asking for more money . I just don’t have the money! Stop trying to blackmail me using the students!

8.

Too many problems to be fixed any time soon and under Dr. Atkinson too much micromanaging. The morale at Charleston was very low. Ask a question and you would be seen as an “enemy”.

9.

How many of the new school building have leaks and problems?

10.

IT’S MY MONEY AND I ‘NEED IT ‘ NOW!

to be continued ………
