Could it be…

Since the schools are now called upon to do more for dysfunctional parenting, dysfunctional families which increasingly leads to dysfunctional children,

such as when parenting fails to adequately feed, cloth, and provide basic health screening,

our schools have had to undertake feeding children, medicating dysfunctional children, provididing some health screening,

and now schools must enter the realm of before school and after school baby-sitting.

At once, there are malcontents who continue to argue that schools today need to live within their budgets,

while the demand put upon our schools to provide a myriad of services,

many of which are dictated by state board of education, and also those additional roles that dysfunctional parenting and dysfunctional families demand from someone,

while these people continue to demand that the schools fulfill a role not part of their original mission statement,

Could it be,

that the state makes demands of school districts for which the state increasingly retreats from its financial responsibility for the implementation of its own dictates,

and thrusts these mandatory unfunded regulations on local taxpayers in an ever increasing funding distress?

Could it be,

that local school districts, because of all these extraneous rules, regulations and parental demands,

just don’t have the funds to carry out these continually increasing series of demands made of them?

It’s not rocket science…


as the naysayer’s insinuate ad nauseum,

the schools just don’t understand NO?

Gladstone is a great school district. Hopefully the teachers keep PC out of the classroom and teach the students what they need to know in order to make it in a trade school or college. Happy to see these nice upgrades for the entire district.

Me Thinks, We Protest Too Little!

What in the world, are they brain dead?

The folks and supporter’s of the Gladstone School District have every right to be proud of the opening of their new classrooms.

So, why has the daily press management failed the public and the school district in yet another attempt to pass off an abomination the press is trying to present as news and reportage so cheaply?

Why does the daily press even think to cover such new classroom openings, and ‘forget’ to follow the reportage with some visuals?

Clearly, digital cameras and cell phones are easily available and with an ounce of consideration, daily press management should have dictated at the very least, a photograph or two, should have accompanied this article.

Perhaps the reason management did not think to include a photograph is that there was no one dressed in orange detention uniforms?

Is the daily press management brain dead?
