At the Cudahy School Board Forum, my second question was: Why don’t the school board members have email addresses?
I attended the School Board Forum tonight and thought the four in attendance (Scott Mulqueen (inc.), Crystal Silkwood, Bob Grams, and Tim Schwartz) did a good job.

Questions and comments about the Public District and School Report Cards may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. DPI is committed to ongoing review of the new accountability system and your input is welcome.
It is always interesting to compare and look for possible tends. As you saw in “Where Our Neighbors Ranked in the DPI Grades”, Cudahy is lagging our neighbors.
Do you think there is a correlation between Cudahy placing more emphasis on the Special Needs programs, while South Milwaukee and Saint Francis cut theirs with the scores?

Gallup More Americans Favor School Officials Having Guns Than Weapon Ban
Dear people who are advocates (that is a soft fancy politically correct word for lobbyist) of budget cuts to education. Where were the outrages and the recalls here?
I was involved this weekend with a private discussion with one of my Facebook friends about whether the mass shooting Friday would have helped avert, minimized or prevent even just one tragedy like the Sandy Hook had the Principal or some select teachers were carrying firearms in school.
So it is that time again that we find ourselves with a City that just doesn’t want to get information to the public! It makes me think that underhanded things happen and are happening. This leads us to have to fish for information and lets rumors fly. Well you know I will air them out and let things fall where they may. Flush them out and bring light to them in a city so bent on keep people in the dark which keeps the rumor mill working overtime.

While act 10 was set forth as a tool for local school districts to control costs, here in Cudahy it is being used as a hammer to "get" people the administration does not like, to fund their "pet" projects, and get ready to come to the taxpayers in a "poor is us" state for a referendum in November. Is Act 10 really working in Cudahy, let's examine.
Here is a question that has perplexed me, angered me, and simply made me question the thought process and wisdom of our School Superintendent and School Board members in regards to the intent NOT to allow Taxpayers to interact with the School Board members in easily used email!
WEAC knows Act 10 is working and they don’t want you to know about it which is why they will not release their own State District Survey Study!
Q. - I have yet to get any details on what insurance the Cudahy district uses. But as I’ve previously said, the current Board approved cutting athletics, art & music, clubs, and dissolving positions.
I would like to see the Elected Officials of Cudahy get serious about the real things plaguing our City.
So I was emailed a PDF version of the April 2012 edition of the Milwaukee Magazine with this email message.
I heard that there is the possibility of a school referendum being considered for the November ballot.

After the MJS ran the DPI Survey (WEAC really did it) the other day, they took a second look at it and debunks things.
I received an email (I will post the chain below minus personal info) that if I had some free time on my hand I would normally follow up more on. Work has been so, so busy that I just don’t have the time to do it.

I personally don’t know any bad teachers. I was lucky when I was a student growing up to have teachers who engaged and cared about me and the other students. Even my third grade teacher in MPS who told me that left-handed people were not as smart and at a disadvantage in life. She made me switch from being left handed to right-handed.

I am sure by now you have seen the email, tweet, facebook, blog posts on how 5 states that don’t have collective bargaining for teachers that the students didn’t score well on the ACT/SAT tests is because of no collective bargaining. It is not only fuzzy logic it is not the truth.
