“In some ways it’s too bad it’s become political but everything we do now is political. Why shouldn’t this become political?” she asked.

Why?  Because Real People are tired of everything being political.  Look what it has brought us in Washington DC.

Wow Vardith,, you must really have spent the time to get know Pat Kanda, John Sluder and Mike Lowenstein.

Lets ignore the out of town money, e-mails and propaganda coming in to support Mikolai, Williams, and Parrish. Let us instead take a look at what these gentlemen you think are suspect are doing. Mr. Lowenstein spends his time volunteering for District 51 and has been a substitute teacher in the District. Pat Kanda was actually elected to the School Board served a term and has returned because he is troubled by what is happening in the District. John Sluder spends his days educating those who have been cast aside by the Mikolai led School District turning drop outs into success stories now for 15 years.

Our schools are failing and the message your pro-education candidates are sending is, 3rd Grade Scores are up so things are getting better. I don’t want to wait 9 years to see the 33.8% math proficiency and 49% reading proficiency in our High School Seniors improve. I don’t want to wait 9 years for the numbers of incoming students requiring remedial courses at CMU to drop.

You can whine your partisan rants about money all you want, but you can not refute the facts. 33.8% and 49% are unacceptable and it is tragic that you think they are.
