Re: “A new superintendent for OUR Schools

Good luck to the search committee in finding a SUPER superintendent, with super intentions for RCSD, this time around.

I hope they will find s SUPER with a sense if direction for success for all students

It seems to me that in the past, RCSD has been AIMLESSLY spinning around!

Re: “Bad marks

Have you seen the MLTS movie? (Free viewing, Thanksgiving weekend)

I saw the film in Brighton, when it was expensive.

Amazon now has it for $9.99 to buy, etc. 90 Minutes long.

There are so many great materials available to encourage school change,
but RCSD shuns outside ideas, etc.Why?


The film Most Likely to Succeed is now available on iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay, as well as through our innovative Committee of Ten offering and a range of school-wide viewing options. The film has now been screened by over 7,000 communities in 35 countries around the globe, and to thank you for being part of this movement, were offering free access to the film through the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

Watch and share the film now:

Re: “Bad marks

Schools Need Easy Change, First.

Dr. Aquino's are interesting, but mind - boggling!

Where can we start making improvements in Rochester schools? Einstein said, Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.

So, lets focus, first, on the simplest, easiest, most immediate changes, first.

Take attendance, for example. All schools could encourage all students to come to school, each and every day, prepared for success. Also, all schools could encourage all teachers to attend all teacher improvement seminars. Attendance data could be collected day by day, and successful results could be felt, immediately.

To focus on easy changes, I suggest using the Easy Button from Staples (or free Easy Button apps for phones and computers). The button says, That was easy", when you press it. (Easy button phone apps are also available, free, online).

Lets start, first with easy reminders, for attendance, etc, to encourage real school improvement, right now.

Re: “RCSD gets low grades from Distinguished Educator

Dear "Animule" I not not fully agree with you. Let's try to help matters by contributing what we can to the debate on RCSD.

For example:
Dr. Aquido has providing this report with suggestions and here it is, in full:


Hopefully, something will come out of his observations and we can proceed, from there.

Re: “A nation divided: the US after the midterms

Great analysis. But I see a flip side to the Trump experience. What Trump has done is give us a:

"Crash" course in democratic government weaknesses.

The mid-term election responded to some of our weaknesses, but this is only a beginning. We have an ongoing opportunity to change the system, etc.

Yes, to voted for Obama. But he was not the ultimate president.
He made some good decisions, perhaps But I found him ALOOF and distant, as he tele-prompted and tele-promopted...

I think the biggest problem is COMFORT.
The middle class intellectual Democrats have become too comfortable.
So, now, Trump frightens us all, on a daily basis, with his Tweets, etc.
Had, Hilary been elected, we might still be comfortable and asleep.

Chin up! It is on the 2020.
Perhaps in 2020, our vision will sharped, approaching 20-20!

Re: “Pipe bombs, shootings, and Donald Trump

Let me add, that Trump is a paradox. He offers both good and bad results.

One one hand, yes, he is bent on destroying the very fabric of democracy, in the US and elsewhere. He is a great threat to our sense of decency and sanity.

On the other hand, he has brought political concern back to life. Politics is becoming energized, daily, because of Trump's craziness. Also, he is making us aware of our own hypocrisy.

(Here in Rochester, for example, we have serious problems with poverty, crime and education. And we sit on our hands, and wait, comfortably, for some magical solutions to suddenly appear, etc)

Now, I think we may be reaching a turning point with Trump, with the mid-term election. If the Democrats take the House, next week, it may be time to reject Trump and move on, without him, to make needed changes in the system...

Re: “Pipe bombs, shootings, and Donald Trump

"Did Winston Churchill's words have no effect during World War Il?"

Of course Churchill's words made a difference. But in the 1940s, people listened intently to the radio. Now, we have TV, and computer messaging. We are swamped by constant info-mania.

So, Trump took advantage of the media-mania, with his tricks.
He has his daily Tweets. He has his daily threats and his fantastic voter baits.

(Trump uses the tricks of the trade of advertising to dominate.)

At the same time, Trump critics on the Left tend to ramble on and on.
The rambling is easily forgotten and it suggests helplessness for Democrats.

I think what will trump Trump is the use of the same repetitive buzz words, etc.
Democrats are starting to wise up . Perhaps by election day, the tide will turn.
