now THAT is some letter! Rye parents should all see this one.
Scott Peterson April 19, 2014 at 02:00 pm
I agree with your assessment of the letter tedc but unless it is understood that in a system builtRead More from the bottom up, no mess comes from the top down, reading it and seeing it aren't the same thing. If accepting a problem is the first step to curing the problem, accepting responsibility for it rather than responsibility to it seems the required second step. Sustaining or creating a habitat in which such a mess as this can survive, let alone thrive, is the readily apparent cause so altering the habitat must be the ready cure. I grant the simplicity in the statement can mislead one to think the doing is simple by extension while stating I accept that it isn't. If the school board is made up of parents and the board members are inept, what must that say of them as parents and how that relates to the future of all of us? Fortunately I have well past the mid point so the future isn't as insecure for me as it must be for those who may be voting for the children of inept parents one day. If the thought isn't perplexing, perhaps it is because it hasn't been honestly considered.
Charmian Neary April 19, 2014 at 02:13 pm
So I saw it, tedc. As a Rye parent—I'm not impressed. Typical really—a tenured teacherRead More calling 1. parents 2. children 3. principals 4. administration "insecure". EVERYBODY is at fault and flawed -- except the above reproach teachers who were apparently forced to cheat. If cheating didn't occur, then why the tandem defense that the high stakes testing crested an atmosphere in which it occurred? It's one or the other, logically. Regarding those so called "high stakes" -- a tenured teacher in the State of New York has one of the most secure jobs in this country. That's a fact == not rumor or innuendo. The reason rubber rooms exist is because it's virtually impossible to fire a public school teacher despite the relative severity of their infractions. Any one who knows any thing about public education and unions in NYS knows this. This is a typical letter from a teacher with an outsized ego. Everyone in the City of Rye is bad apparently: the board, the superintendent, the principal, parents, even the children. The teachers involved however are good -- blameless in fact. I don't buy it. You need to lay off those toxic cocktails you're hammering over in Greenwich CT.

I have to tell you that the card owner doesn't get burned, the card issuer don't either, nor does the company you hire to process and approve the cards. It's the local merchant where the card was used. Online ordering is the worst. The big banks say you didn't swipe a card, so you're liable, even though it was approved by that same bank at the time of purchase. If this keeps up, I'll have to go backwards in time and shut down online ordering. So much for a cashless society.

In light of the event, it may be a good time for bicyclists to be reminded that they must obey theRead More traffic laws as applied to other vehicles including, among others, stopping at red lights and not riding on sidewalks. It would appear that the basic bicycle safety programs we had in school when I was young were among those items cut from school budgets. This seems evident to me based on the recklessness in which I see people ride bikes today. This is specially true of the adults I see riding since they should know better as they set the example to the children. My first speeding ticket was issued while riding my ten speed in 8th grade, I learned then that bikes are considered vehicles under the law in NY and subject to the same traffic rules as any other vehicle. Maybe instead of trying on a new cod piece for those new bike pants, bikers should invest the money in learning how to ride their bikes safely and legally to better avoid becoming a bumper sticker through their own neglect.

The real jihadist in the family was the Tsarnaeyev's brothers' mother. The Russians knew that but didn't send the video proving it to the FBI. Even so, they told the FBI enough that they should have been on their trail, and the FBI blew it. And why weren't they on top of the former Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan who shot to death three non-Jews in an anti-semitic attempt to kill Jews in Overland Park? Why do we allow so much surveillance of citizens when the results are so disappointing? It's not like the FBI is getting the job done. They miss a lot of really big, obvious targets.
