When students learn, test scores show it. The data is there makig the messsage clear to anyone who Read Morewishes to open their eyes and accept that their opinion might just be wrong. When the National Standards provide test results that show Michigan is 37th in Reading and 42nd in Math, why wouldn't everyone want better results? Go to www.edtrust.org/midwest and read their 2014 report on public education in Michigan. Go to www.edtrust.org and read a little. When looking for a new leader, why wouldn't you go look where it is being done the best? The contrast is stark. A better alternative is shouting "over here" waiting for those with eyes, ears, and minds open instead of closed with smug self-importance.

Mr. Brown, You and your ilk have become part of the problem. A closed mind is a terrible things to Read Morewaste.

Mr. Brown is correct when he points out that it appears the FPS board can do nothing right in theRead Moreop inion of Mr. York, Art, and others of "their ilk" (to borrow Art's term), even when it strives to make the process more transparent, more amenable to public comment, and more likely to find a good candidate. Mr. York, I am always impressed by the level of research and thought that you bring to your comments, even when I don't agree with them. Why do you not run for the Board rather than simply rail and carp from the sidelines? More broadly, gentlemen, you seem to think the FPS Board is on a deliberate mission to seek less qualified applicants and, ultimately, to destroy the district. These people are unpaid volunteers, with literally nothing to be gained by such actions. Constructive criticism is healthy and productive, but I don't see what is your end game. Mass resignation? Capitulation to your narrow point of view? At what point will you be satisfied?

Sorry there has been a change to the menu for tonight. We will be serving roast beef, mash potatoes Read Morewith gravy instead of the taco bar. Yes there will still be fried and baked cod, soup, salad and dinner rolls. Thank you.
