(um. Who was managing Shady Grove Middle School on Thursday November 8 while two of the top administrators were in Portland, Oregon?)


  1. Hmmm. The Administrators also conducted over 40 home visits this summmer and year while students were in summer/daily school, yet you did not blog about that AND the school is STILL standing.

    1. Hmmmm and that relates to them getting a free trip, how?

      Was it 40 home visits and you can win a trip?

      The school is still standing. And, that means what? Were you at the County Council's budget hearing this week? What did you hear about the state of the county finances? Did you hear that the County has money to hand out to MCPS staff for free trips to conventions that have nothing to do with educating children in classrooms?

      You're clearly not a teacher, because teachers know how to do math. They know that budgets have limits and that perks take away from classroom funding. In fact, perks even take away from teacher salaries. Teachers know that. And, if they have chosen trips over salary, then they must be very, very happy with their salaries.

  2. You again present misinformation. You do not have any facts. This is your blog and you can write what you desire, but at least have facts about incidents before you post misinformation. I do have the facts because I inquired. How about you?

    1. What is the misinformation? Teachers didn't do home visits?

      "You" can't even identify yourself.
