While I am not a parent, I am one who values public education and recognizes its critical importance in facilitating the lifelong success of individuals. As a resident of Springboro, OH, I have been very disappointed in the actions of the Springboro Board of Education (BOE). Particular members of the BOE have voted for and/or promoted policies that are grossly detrimental to the community. These include, but are not limited to, wasteful spending, unfair labor practices, and unconstitutional instruction. Along with many other community members, I have shared my concerns at the BOE meetings. Unfortunately, it appears that the majority community voice falls on deaf ears. Additionally, blatantly erroneous information has been provided by members of the BOE in their attempts to further their own political agenda. On this blog, I share audio files of my own comments at BOE meetings. Furthermore, I provide accurate information regarding some of the key issues of discussion. I would like to thank my good friend and fellow Springboro resident, Tracey Kramer, for bringing the Springboro BOE's actions to my attention!

*Note: While I refer to the BOE as one entity, please recognize that not every member engages in such tactics.

Minimizing Multiculturalism and Urging the Uniculture! This is what the BOE president supports!

The current president of the Springboro BOE is Kelly Kohls. She is also the president of the Warren County Tea Party (WCTP). If you want to know what the WCTP stands for, take a look at a video titled “Thomas Paine’s Common Sense” by Bob Basso. Below are a few quotes from the 6-minute video. To see the full video, go to http://www.lebanonteaparty.org/ and scroll down to the bottom of the page. Thanks to J. Lewis for sending me this information!

“…read your world history, not one nation has survived as a multi-culture. It’s the uni-culture that is its strength…Is it common sense to adopt your new national religion of diversity, when the very word means disunity…you have to import people…because you haven’t got enough smart people in America

While I believe in individuals' rights to their respective political beliefs, I am concerned that the school board president of a diverse community promotes such ethnocentric and intolerant beliefs.
