367 School Districts Placed on the College Board's 2nd Annual AP District Honor Roll for Significant Gains in Advanced Placement Access and Student Performance
Got this from an elementary school parent yesterday along with her request for a "Support Public Schools, Stop Budget Cuts, Say NO to Vouchers" lawn sign. This morning I received an email from the PTO at this school asking for 100 lawn signs…LAF
"I hate to admit, but I usually don't head to the polls for the local elections. But I was wondering if you could tell me if there is anyone running who is in support of helping the public schools that could use our support. I'd be happy to cast a vote for anyone who is willing to stand up to Washington and fight for our school system and rid us of budget cuts. I grew up in Catholic school and only until I moved to Havertown did I get first hand knowledge of the great things that come from public schools. That's why we moved here, for the schools, as most do. And we love it, my kids love it. But even they see the changes, the take backs and the lack of "fun" that school is becoming. We need to preserve what we have and continue to make strides for the future, not let the government push us backwards. So any info on the candidates you can give would be greatly appreciated."

My grandmother used to have a saying about hypocrites. She would say, "That is the pot calling the kettle black." This was back in the day before stainless steel cookware existed. This phrase is most relevant to the Pennsylvania School Boards Association these days.
