No...You need to get rid of all the Superintendents who is NOT putting the kids first. Get rid of all the BOE members who are puppets to the superintendents who is allowing the superintendents to get away with what they do. Then get rid of all the incompetent principals who don't do their job. Next get rid of the to many vice principals that are needed. Then you can start getting rid of all the incompetent lazy teachers that do everything but teach. You work your way from the top down.

That's great and I can understand that. If you are going to give a job out at least give it to someone who has the highest credentials, especially when it comes to the community kids...just don't give out jobs to your unqualified friends. Yes, people in private sectors and big companies hires friends and family who are going to work with skills. You just can't afford to hire losers who don't do anything. They will be losing their job real quick weather someone knows them or not. Most private companies don't have tenured where they keep their job no matter what.

Jane Doe, Get off your high horse. I am not writing an essay, it is a blog. I was in a rush and had a few typos. Lastly, I blame all the lazy teachers for my lack of grammar and writing skills and proper english. This is the reason why the public school needs changes. They need them now...I am sick of all the teachers excuses. They are more worried about their self centered attitudes how great they think of themselves. They promote their own B.S. that most can see right through.

I apologize for all my typos (wants to protect themselves as well as I do)

Well, You don't give the rest of us the knowledge or privilege of knowing where you actually teach or who you are? I can understand why? Everyone wants to be protected themselves as well as I do of the back lash they might get in saying something when something is wrong. From my own personal experience it was the exact opposite of your position. Most of the administrators, teachers were brutal, lazy, worthless, bad mouthing, used bullying tactics, nasty unkind people I ever meet and had to deal with. I had many different jobs and it had to be the worse. Everything is fine in the schools as long as you look the other way or you agree with them. If you don't you will be ostracized and that is the truth.

The schools are not only hiring teachers who do not only have the right credentials. They are blocking all the teachers who are more qualified that has the right credentials. All because of politics of hiring all their friends and families. It is flat out wrong. They can't stand to listen and hear any more of the lies. Yes, By H.S. most kids already figured out the lies and B.S. that is going on in their schools....But...shhhh, they are not supposed to tell anyone or complain. They are just expected to go along with all the disgusting games. You can go through any schools files right now and I can guarantee you that not only is majority of employees connected in some way and their credentials are not even close to what they should be. There is so many more applicants whose credentials are much suited that don't get the job because the job is handed over to someone connected in the community. Each district takes care of their own. It is not about the kids, the kids know its not about them too. Maybe you can fool some of the 5 to 10 year olds, that is about it. We need a change. BTW, we need to get rid of tenured for every employee with in all the district. There needs to be a place that the parents and kids can go or write a letter to make complaints other than the school that they attend. Most know the complaints go no where.

I agree with many of the different opinions, views on this very important subject. I have to agree that I feel we need a big change in the public school system. There is many different issues and problems in all the different schools. I don't feel all the problems is in the abbott schools. We have plenty of problems that are hidden in all the districts. Sorry, I have to agree. I don't feel you need 16 Administrator in one H.S.. I knew a retired principal in the NY City school systems way back when man had more morals and principals. He was getting paid a heck of lot less, of course there is inflation. The point is he was one man, principal for a school of 10,000 students. The school had a great reputation and both parents and kids were happy. We don't need all these principals, we certainly don't need all the superintendents who don't do anything other than play the dirtiest politics of all. The innocent students who are kids become victims of the nonsense. It effects them in really bad ways. I feel these ill effects is the reason why we have students walking on the tracks. They feel if we can't go to our own school officials and parents who really can't do anything about their situation at schools because you have these great administrators ignoring many complaints. It true what one of the post mentioned and everyone is aware of it. These administrators hire their families, political friends, put them in a position that they have no business being in.

Joe R...No, but what I do see is a lot of second grade teachers and administrators bullying kids on a daily basis. They like who they like and everyone else they bully.

Joe R&JD...I feel you are both wrong...JD it is more than 20% educators who need to lose their jobs and I am including all the administrators in the schools who clearly are not doing their job...I have a 1/3 rule in how workers perform no matter what your job or the industry you are in. 1/3 is great, 1/3 is just ok and 1/3 is horrible and should be fired. They need to find another job. Possibly they might be good in another profession. There is no room for 1/3 just ok or 1/3 horrible Teachers, Administrators (educators) teaching our public school children in all the public schools. It is not just the abbott districts that have all the problems even though that is what most try to use as a scapegoat. We need to get rid of all these educators and replace them all great teachers. I have come across a lot of lazy educators in my time and they are giving all the great teachers a bad name and its unfair to all of them too. They all get paid the equal same amount regardless if they are good or not. Many on this debate has their own beliefs and opinions. Many of them I happened to agree with and all have valid points on this debate. But common...Let's face the facts...The public school no longer works properly and their needs to be real changes. The way they are funded needs to change. People can no longer afford to stay in their homes is wrong. End of Story!

Joe R...It is obvious that you are a teacher....Let me ask you these few questions? Do you feel that all teachers are equal? I don't! Do you feel all administrators are equal? I don't. Do you feel all children are treated equal in the public school system? I don't. Do you think all coaches in the public school system is treating all public school kids the same. I don't. The school allows the public school to be run by a few politically connected and the elite and everyone else is left in the dust. It is call green back (money) $200,000 and more for a free college education of their choice. That is disgusting in itself because of the greed. It is usually those who can afford to pay for their self. They will do everything in their power to scam how great only some kids are. Most of it lies and in accurate. This is public school corruption at its best. Giving others a free college education that don't deserve it on the backs of other kids they really do.
