Congratulations to the Republican candidates , neighborhood schools won ! Mr. Nick Rhodes , you have to respect the will of the people. You are without a doubt the most divisive individual to ever serve on the board. Your talents would be better suited for a leadership role in the NAACP ( National Association of Always Complaining People ). Your labeling of Ms. Cavenaugh as a segregationist was disgusting.Busing students WILL NOT help academic achievement for individuals. There are other cultural issues that need to be addressed in the African-American community to improve academic performance. A lack of commitment from a " majority" of blacks that education is the key to success. A lack of parental involvement in their child's school concerning academics is a chronic issue. A true example of being out of touch is a black mother arriving at an elementary school to check out her child and she can not tell the receptionist who the child's teacher is. The child at this point has been in this class for eight months. You can not get them to come to a PTA meeting whether it is a neighborhood school or a school across town but if junior is playing in a ballgame they bring the entire family . Your priorities need to be examined within your community. The race card is a ploy that backfired on Mr. Rhodes. Review the vote tallies. The people have spoken. Elizabeth Redenbaugh is the next one to go !
