Re: “Frustrated board wrestles with special ed

If the board members are reading statistics, why are they not reading the ones that show that our district has one of the highest concentrations of poverty in the US? What are they not reading the statistics that high poverty correlated with high achievement gaps? Why not acknowledge our classrooms are bursting at the seams and the ONLY way to get a child what s/he needs is to be placed in a class with a LOWER teacher/student ratio (ie: special ed), Why is the board not read the stats that we have HIGH LEAD AFFECTED children therefore the HIGH Other Health Impaired numbers? When you have a point to make, we tend to only see the stats that support our opinions and ignore the ones that contradict our opinions.

Re: “Skatepark advocate losing hope

Why does the city continually refuse to create viable positive activities for our youth. I know skating crosses generations, but it's born in the hearts if our young and practiced to an art as a teen. Aren't they the group that needs positive activities more than any? C'mon City of Rochester, quit failing your youth!

Re: “City school board seeking change and solutions

Creating smaller neighborhood schools should be the focus for RCSD. It builds strong community/family bonds that can raise these children together with a vested interest in seeing them succeed. This is how we can but a FACE on the problem and when we have that, people take action. It's easy to point fingers at others and not do anything with the problem is just "a number."
