School board seems to be out of control

Letter to the Editor

After meeting with a school board member and the MVSD superintendent and his number 2, and sitting through almost all of a negotiation meeting, I have come to the conclusion that the indoctrination system—oops, I mean education system, at least here in our district, is severely flawed.

The main word is no (or don’t know):

Will you tell me what the negotiator is getting paid?   

How many students are in our school system?   

How many non-teaching staff do you currently have?   

Why are there two 52-seat school buses running through Mt. Idaho every day with six kids on them?    

Would you consider holding negotiation meetings and school board meetings in the evenings so that the taxpayers (working people) could attend?

Can you supply me with minutes for the one supposed “public” school board meeting that was held prior to the levy (that which school board chair Dominguez crowed about at the last board meeting)?   

Are there any minutes for the one “public” school board meeting?

Do you plan on disciplining the teachers and staff that encouraged and participated in the March student walkout?  

Are you going to return the almost $1 million received in SRS funds to the taxpayers? (This is the one that originally got me motivated.)

Do you live in/pay taxes in our school district? 

Don’t you start the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance?

Again, I call on our school board to resign! Only one school board member was at the last negotiation meeting, and only then for a short time. The superintendent was there off and on—showed up 10 minutes late for the start. I could go on and on. We voted these people in to manage/control our local school—seems to me they are out of control.

You owe it to yourself (and your pocketbook) and your school and the children to make time to attend these supposed meetings. Call our school board members and demand that meetings be held during times that taxpayers can attend.

By the way, as accused, I’m not an “Obama liberal.”
