On Superintendent bound for China again
Actually, China is the best place for this group of "leaders" from Janesville as they obviously aren't doing very good jobs here. They have treated fine, hard-working teachers with indignity and they should be ashamed of that. Janesville is definitely not looking out for the best interests of students nor staff.
On Rob Roy to step down as Milton School Board President
The fact that Mr. Roy is stepping down is the best news for Milton. Let's hope that a person with leadership qualities takes that position.
On Milton schools taps two superintendent finalists
Once again, the inept Milton Board of Education has made a poor decision. They picked two candidates who have no ties to Milton and we all know how that played out last time. They had a chance to select people who are committed to the Milton staff and students, but chose not to go in that direction. How disappointing for the district.
On NO ELECTION for Milton School Board next Tuesday!
I agree completely with Mr. Eyster's remarks. The Milton School Board has not done a good job in securing confidence of the staff, students and parents by their abhorrent actions in the superintendent situation. This also includes their treatment of support staff in discussions or forums, and their overall involvement in what has been happening in the district. A NO vote of confidence is what they deserve.
On Milton schools brace for $865,000 in cuts
Governor Walker's promises are empty ones and it is true, that Milton always seems to find the money it's expected to lose. Is this the fault of very poor business office management year after year? One has to wonder.... Milton used to be superior under previous Boards of Education but now they are on a subpar path similar to what Janesville Schools are experiencing. It is too bad voters won't have choices in the upcoming election to oust the current Board members.
On Janesville School District superintendent trying to quell labor rumors
It seems to me that since Ms. Schulte took over this district, she has lost sight of her most important asset - good, honest and hard-working staff. Some of her district office administrators do not see those qualities in a teacher. They have a history of getting good staff to resign or quit because they don't fit into a pre-conceived prototype of what Janesville wants. They want great test scores and often refuse to see how hard a teacher or principal might be working toward those goals. The district does not offer great mentors to teachers as they move them around the district like pawns. They don't give credit to teachers that put in many extra hours of work to better serve the students' needs. Ms. Schulte needs to take a long, hard look at who she put in place to oversee teachers and why good teachers are being forced to leave or leave of their own volition. Of course, this means she would have to stay in her office and do her job.
On Fiscal deal marks return of the real Obama
The author and his Fox cronies are still having a difficult time getting over the election results. The whining is tiresome and non-productive, to say the least.
On Janesville School District considering incentive pay for administrators
Perhaps the Janesville School Board should concentrate on hiring qualified administrators to begin with. They should put their "incentive" money into better teacher-mentor programs where newer teachers get the benefits from more experienced and helpful staff. I think the board has their priorities confused and hopefully, the Janesville voters will make some meaningful changes in the spring election.
On Why does Milton Board President want Gazette to stop investigating?
Mr. Roy and his inept leadership style have added to the situation by his lack of communicating with the staff and taxpayers in Milton. That he is running for re-election shows his vanity and self-importance. He will never say that he is sorry - just as the superintendent they investigated would never do. Because they didn't act on information they had sooner, they are primarily to blame for this financial debacle. Shame on Mr.Garrow and shame on the board.
On Ryan's VP run is top local story
Best two stories involve two losers - Paul Ryan and Mike Garrow. Let's hope we never hear from them again.
