I am sorry Sarah, but modernizing Wa Hi is not going to fix the problems that you mentioned. These are societal problems. These are parents not holding their children accountable, and frankly, not caring enough about them to put them on a path to success. We are a society that is filled with entitlement. We always have our hands out, wanting somebody else to do something for us.
It's time to stop blaming our societal problems on issues like Wa Hi not having Ipad's for every student. While this is an example and would be great, it is not going to stop child A from joining a gang and becoming incarcerated.
Let's take a look at society, and fix what we can there. While I am a supporter of the Wa Hi bond, I get tired of citizens making excuses. We as a society need to step up, and do something about these issues. While moderninzing Wa Hi may have a small part in helping, I think your letter is far fetched by stating that modernizing a school will keep kids out of jail.
That's what I thought also. Wa Hi was undefeated coming into this game. It's a shocker that they lost!
I don't think the issue is whether or not the money is returned to taxpayers via paying down debt or some other means. I think the issue is that the tax payers were not made aware of what was going on with the excess funds. They were not kept abreast of what was going on.
Yes sir, I have been in the current weight room. I spend 4 good years working out in there. Is it state of the art? No. Does it do what it is intended to do? Absolutely. There is no accessibility to the larger student population? How about all of the weight training classes that are offered?
I think we need to hold off also. No need to remodel a school for 2000 students, when 300-400 will be leaving in a couple of years. $60M+ is a bit much also. I understand the need, but is there a need for a new weight room and outdoor track? I question that.
Is that comment similar to Obama showing that he can't fix ANYTHING? He has proven he can sure make things much worse. Good for him. Now THAT'S something to be proud of. Go MSNBC!
I quit reading at "the failed policies of the Reagan/Bush administrations." I don't care if I agree with you or not, but don't be so damn biased. I think the above MSNBC comment is spot on.
Why should we do this? So that the high income students in WW can get a better education than everyone else?
A little more digging shows that Chris Blackman had a large judgment against her a few years ago. This is public knowledge. Also, doesn't anybody see a small conflict of interest with her husband being a part of the SO?
That's big of you to say. I think that attacking a proud Mom, who happens to be involved in politics, is out of line. She didn't mention anything about her politics. Based on past issues, it is very obvious that she is VERY PROUD of her children and their accomplisments.
