Here we go again.....

At tonight's Board of Education meeting, it appears that Sue Haynie was let out of her 'fill in the blank' to trash the superintendent. The woman is uncontrollably angry! In my opinion, the more she publicly opposes the superintendent in this juvenile way, the better he looks.

Ask Not......

I am adopting the topic of one of the posters here and taking some license with the J.F.K. Inaugural speech____________________________ 'Ask not what your school system can do for you. Ask what you can do for your school system.' No, it is not corny. Yes, I am taking the opportunity to be a cheerleader. It is time to stop the negativity. How? Parents, take control of homework and reading with your children. Teachers, be positive about the new initiatives. Board of Ed, take back control of the angry, bitter members. Everyone, work together and watch good things happen. It will take time, but it can happen. Will you try? Norwalk hit bottom. That is what people are saying everywhere about the Marks' superintendency. Will you lend a hand to help a good system get back up on its feet? If not, my guess is we will sink below bottom......

Rosh Hashanah

A very happy and healthy New Year to our Jewish friends and families. This is the first year that the holiday will be celebrated with one school day off. How will you spend the day?

Who will be our Hero?

Will it be Jack, Chairperson of the Board who pulls together the Board and quiets the member(s) who are out of control? Will it be Mike Lyons who starts to use his own intelligence and stops supporting a loose cannon? Will it be the mayor who gets control of the out of control member(s) of the Board of Ed? Who will step up to the plate and be our hero? What's your guess?

Calling the Board of Ed.....

This is a longshot, and may even be ignored, but I would like the Chair of the Board to let us know how he plans to show the leadership needed. Jack, please respond here.....

The Search

It is clear that the search is on for a new superintendent. It is clear that Haynie, for one, wants the new superintendent on the job mid-year. I am bringing this subject up again because it frightens me. Who is available mid-year to fill such an important role? Someone who is being forced out ot the job they are now in? Someone who couldn't get a superintendency for the beginning of the school year? A retired superintendent from New York who is willing to come to Norwalk?............Am I the only one who fears the choice of candidates mid-year will be the rejects?
