I am a parent that pulled my child out of the failing RCSD in 2006/07 school year. She attends Rochester Prep and has excelled tremendously the last 2 years. I in no way feel the heat of blame on my shoulders. I pay my dam taxes and if that money trickles down to Albany just to make its way back to the school district to dole out to the charter schools then so be it. I expect to get transportation for my child cause I'm paying for it. I expect for my child to see a nurse cause I'm paying for it. Parents are not to blame in this situation the school board and the many superintendents that were hired and left over the years are. The only one that my have been able to turn this mess around was Mr. Calla. Mr. Vargas cannot improve this mess in the amount of time he's had. Let's be real. There are people that are entrenched on the board, at the union and down at the district offices that need to go. The mindset has to change. New people with new thoughts and ideas need to get in in order for things to change. I'm not gonna sit around and let my child get lost in the system. I haven't and if I can get her into a private high school or urban suburban then that's what I'm gonna do.
