Re: “City school district's graduation rate still stuck in the 50's

It is said that Alexander, became "Alexander the Great" when he cut the impossible Gordian knot, with his sword.

School officials come up with excuses, every year for the low Rochester high school graduation rates. But they never seem to be looking for people who can cut through the "red tape" and the endless excuses for school failure.

I suggest, again and again, that RCSD invite outsiders to come into the schools to offer their suggestions for school improvements. I am one of many people in Rochester who have tried to share ideas to motivate students and teachers, only to be ignored, time and time again. There are people in Rochester and there are consultants outsider of Rochester who can help, but they are ignored.

Perhaps the intervention of Mayor Warren in the UPrep graduation situation can set the stage for more outside involvement in RSCD.

For example See: www.MindsetWorks.com

See, also, the new Mister Rogers film, now at the Little and Pittsford theaters:

Re: “Conservatives' takeover is complete. Who cares?

Dear Mary Anna Towler,

You say that "most Americans don't care about this stuff."

Let me suggest that politics has become too complicated for most people.
I think what the Democrats need to do is get back to basic common sense, with simple statements, stories, animations, etc.

I wrote to you about the Mister Rogers movie, "Wont you be my Neighbor."
It is currently playing at the Little and Pittsford theaters. Check it out, please.
(See ratings and trailer, below)

Mister Rogers was about common decency and common sense.
Perhaps, if you watch the film, you will understand what I am driving at.

I think we can start to turn the country around with very very simple ideas, that even a small child could understand and agree with.

As Voltaire put it: "Common sense is not so common."

Re: “Making America great: Trump, children… and jazz

Yes, Democrats have to Jazz up their campaign messages, if they want to win the House in November.

Perhaps music can be added to their campaign strategy, as Trump keeps dominating the media...

Re: “Another special ed reboot

Dear Peter Burkus,

Thanks for sharing your concerns.
Are you open to working with others to try to improve RCSD?
I agree that there are many programs that could help the District, but perhaps if we work together, in groups, in teams, in collaboration, we can really make a difference.

As Aesop said, "united we stand. Divided we fall."
How can you be contacted? Email? Facebook? Etc.

My blog is: www.SavingSchools.org Pearle (at) Writeme.com

Why wait? The summer is now. Thanks H

Re: “Another special ed reboot

"If the school board adopts the Special Advisory Committee's recommendations this week, the district will have three years to turn things around. "

I think that endless WAITING and WAITING is a big part of the problem.
Surely, there are simple steps that can be taken, TODAY that can help.

There are TOOLS available for free, or at low cost, that can be use right NOW.
There are computer-aided-learning tools for special education. There are motivational tools available, such as www.WHYTRY.org and www.MINDSETWORKS.org .

Why the endless waiting game?

Re: “Report challenges city school district's spending

Here is a creative short video from "Prince EA" on the school problem:


This is only 6 minutes long and perhaps it could be shown at school board meetings, at schools, at PTA meetings, etc.

Maybe City Newspaper could comment on this wonderfully done video.

Re: “Donald Trump and other threats to our democracy

Dear Mary Anna Towler,

Why did not you not mention James Comey's new book: A Higher Loyalty?
It will be released, Tuesday, May 17, but portions have been leaked out.

Here is my comment to the NY Times, today. Again, I suggest that the problem is not just about Trump and Fascism, but INFO-MANIA. We are drowning in media and it is hard to focus on the truth, and on what we should be doing. So, we sit back and watch Trump saturate the media, as we lose control of the nation, day by day.

Harry's Comment:
Trump trumps everyone, but now Comey "throws the book at him"
The more Trump attacks Comey, the more Comey's book will sell.

The more Comey's book sells, the more Trump will be attacked.
Is Trump's game over? Has he reached the end of the line? Time will tell.

We, have James Comey to thank for showing us what it means to be a true American hero. Hopefully others will rise up to save the nation from Trumpism.
