Bravo to the MPS teachers who demonstrated at all the schools today. Taymore should have been fired years ago instead of rehired and given a substantial raise. She is not respected by the educators she abuses on a daily basis. The budget has been mismanaged, children ignored and the staff on the front lines disrespected. Glad they are taking action. Hopefully, the SC members will act like grownups and fire Taymore, Adams and that Sp Ed Woman. It’s interesting that even some teachers at my children’s school have said they would vote against an Override for the schools because they don’t trust the Administrators or School Committee.
Oh please, this is ridiculous. What a bunch of whiners these protesters are. In the business world, nobody would ever protest for coworkers who did not receive favorable reviews. Get real, we should all be cheering that the under performing teachers are not going to be teaching our kids. What's so wrong with accountability? Do your job well and keep your job. Do your job sub par and don't keep your job. Unless somebody can provide concrete evidence that the review process is not being followed or performed fairly, this protesting should stop immediately.
Can you Sue a School For hiring incompetent teacher's? If you have a teacher whom you deem keep a record there's a lot who are dragging the system down but you don't see many citations. Trust me, the 2 biggest gorillas in the room in Public Education are teachers union, and the clueless State Department of Education(Administration, staff, school boards teacher and students parents) sucks up to them.
Teacher's contract should be noted that a committee to make a motion of no confidence for any teacher with tenure with many complaints.
We are voting “NO” on any Override for the schools, if it is rushed this year. The Override possibility should only happen in November 2019. At this time, a Mayoral election will take place as well as numerous races in the Wards and for School Committee. BOA members running for Mayor cannot run for their current seats. Some BOA people are not seeking re-election. Half of the BOA could turnover. SC people like DeSelm and The Felon will be seeking votes (NO !) Hopefully, dozens of new candidates will run for both elective bodies. All folks interested must SPELL OUT their POSITIONS on Override Questions including the schools. Public Safety Buildings must be part of an Override and the 1st priority. We will not support an Override in September 2018 or April 2019 for the MPS only. Political Leadership and Judgement is needed but we are not holding our breath.
The Division of Special Education and Student Services Provides technical expertise and leadership in the area of professional development, parental involvement, and the interpretation of federal and state. The office of Specialized Education Facilities under PWL has downright FAILED the Melrose schools.:-1:
