Here's a super easy way to get some funds for Birch Grove Elementary!

Target launched the "Thanks A Billion" campaign yesterday. Target will give $25 to Birch Grove for every "thanks" sent through the link below until they reach $1 billion in donations.
Share a message of thanks for a teacher and Target will give $25 to their school! Your message will help reach our goal of giving $1 billion to education.

Why feed the greed?

At a recent board meeting, Chairman Henke and I tried get our paltry 3% verification number increased in order to make sure that that no students in need were literally having food taken out of their mouths by people who did not need or deserve it.  We were voted down 4-2.

Please ask Board members Girtz, Craig, Burgett, and Etim, what their incentive is to allow this kind of greed to continue at the expense of our most vulnerable students.

"Now, the sector is approaching a tipping point in its push to make that case, Kill said, primarily by touting today’s advanced manufacturing jobs as well-paying upgrades over the kind of gritty work that dominated the sector, and shaped its reputation, decades ago. Still, just 36 percent of manufacturing executives reported that their companies had collaborative relationships with a higher education institution. But increasingly, Kill said, school-sponsored job-training initiatives yield visible gains for employers and communities."
Against the backdrop of brimming post-recession optimism, the worker shortage looming for years is beginning to sting as baby boomers retire and the pipeline of new workers undershoots demand.

When you give rich student and a poor student each a book and a pencil and tell them to do an assignment at home, both sets of tools work the same and equity of opportunity is achieved. But when you give a rich student and a poor student an iPad and them to do an assignment at home, the rich student will likely have Internet access, or at least much faster and/or widely available access (e.g., portable hotspot to make use of time in the car) than the poor student. Wise use of technology in education can definitely increase student achievement; blindly mandating the use of technology in schools will likely only further widen economic inequity and the resulting achievement gap.

"Like" if you like lower taxes!
It's good to be clerk when you get to sign off on $5.1M in debt service savings. About one million dollars per year from 2016 to 2021, and the best news is that the money must go back to the taxpayers in the form of lower property taxes! #conservativeresults
