School Board Directors go to Harrisburg

 

It’s not what you think. We are conservative school board members who banded together over similar new construction horror stories. The purpose of the trip was a meeting with Representative Hickernell, Chairman of the House Education Committee and Representative Garth Evertt. The four of us came from across the state. Myself from Upper Perkiomen SD, Ron Snell, from Montoursville Area SD, Joy Beers, from Lehighton SD, and Tom Harley, from Indiana SD.

 

None of us were able to change the outcome of new construction in our districts although Upper Perkiomen did vote to terminate the project after it was started, but the administration did not send the termination letters to the contractors. Instead they

End ‘Groundhog Day’ tax nightmare in PA

Groundhog Day is a popular tradition celebrated in Pennsylvania. It’s also personified by a movie in which a man finds himself trapped in a time warp, doomed to relive the same day over and over again until he gets it right.

Ironically, it’s that way every year for homeowners in Pennsylvania, who are doomed with ever-increasing property taxes as school districts estimate higher budgets. Legislators have allowed this regressive system to continue far too long.

But last year was different. In November, Pennsylvania voters sent a clear mandate to eliminate property taxes by passing a referendum allowing for a 100 percent homestead exclusion on the property tax. Now a financial solution to replace the school

Do your elected officials at the state and local level even care about you?

Share

By Printus LeBlanc at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

Judging by a few recent announcements, it appears elected officials don’t care about American citizens. The California Attorney General just announced any employer obeying federal immigration laws would face state charges. Many in Congress are trying to shut the federal government down if amnesty is not given to illegal immigrants. Have they ever threatened to shut down the government over education, homelessness, military pay, or veterans care? I don’t think so.

Newly elected New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy was sworn in on Tuesday, January 16, and he made his priorities known immediately. Unfortunately, his priorities have nothing to do with New Jersey citizens, but more to do with illegal immigrants. The

Dear Editor,

I have attended the East Penn School Board meetings and have some concerns that seem to have fallen on deaf ears. When Board member Carol Allen brought up the PAYS (Pennsylvania Youth Survey) for grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 at the September 25, 2017 meeting, I was quite concerned about that survey. I was able to acquire a copy of the over 200+ questions and was shocked to read some of them. As a parent, I know I would not want my children answering those invasive questions. Truly an invasion of privacy

Letter Writer hits on current Educational Math

Share

We’re suffering from lack of fluency in basic math By Mary Byrne, Springfield , Mo. The case of mistaken identity with math isn’t between arithmetic and mathematics, it’s between math educators and professionals who actually use mathematics in the world outside of the K-12 classroom. In a previously published Local Voice, Dr. Campbell asks, “Do we really want to spend time anymore on learning times-tables and other purely arithmetic procedures? When was the last time those were used in the workplace, especially where time is money?” Apparently, Dr. Campbell hasn’t observed the inability of young cashiers who can’t calculate change in real time when the computerized cash register becomes useless during a power outage. Or perhaps he’s never waited for a job candidate
