Whereas the illegal transfer of Music has taken over Liberia;
Whereas the Copy Right Law of Liberia has become toothless;
Whereas Musicians have been denied their rights to use their talents to survive;
Whereas Liberia is losing too much money from the music and entertainment industry;
Whereas even the law enforcers have become a part of the copyright violation in Liberia; and in as much as the musicians in Bong County have tried to appeal to those transferring their music to desist but failed;
We have therefore decided to ask the government of Liberia to:
For the time being the school superintendent is an appointed position, meaning that any person who is smooth enough to ingratiate himself or herself with the school board, regardless of their prior track record, can find themselves in charge of one of the largest school districts in Florida.
They have the power to give themselves and other school board members raises and appropriate public funds based on unilateral decisions that greatly influence the quality of education our children receive.
It is a position of substantial power and prestige; therefore, the decision to hire that individual should not rest in the hands of a small minority who for the most part have either been out of the teaching profession (in a classroom) for too long, have never even been a teacher in a classroom, or have no children attending public schools in Palm Beach County.
The power to hire the superintendent of the Palm Beach County School District should rest in the hands of the residents of Palm Beach County. The education of our children depends on it.
I AM STARTING THIS PETITION TO TRY AND CONVINCE THE BOARD OF EDUCATION AND SUPERINTENDENT KRINER CASH TO KEEP COACH DARREN STEVENS ON STAFF AT KINGSBURY MIDDLE SCHOOL FOR THE 2009-2010 SCHOOL YEAR AND BEYOND.

Vickers Elementary is the host campus to the Children from The Devereux
Facility and the A.B.L.E program.
The children from the Devereux facility are bused to the campus from
Devereux. In the past they were taught at their campus and then at the school
near by their campus. Many of these children were removed from their home
due to special needs and have behavior problems.
The children in the A.B.L.E program are from all the campuses in VISD. Vickers
is the campus for the children in 4th and 5th grade who have been removed
from their classrooms at their school. They have been removed due to their
behavior problems and are sent to other campuses depending on their grade
level. The 4th and 5th grade children are being sent to Vickers under the
A.B.L.E program because they can not function in the classroom at their school
due to their behavior but are being placed in the classrooms with the Vickers
The children are causing education disruptions as well as threatening the safety
of the other children. Many children have left the campus because they are
fearful of going to class. Not all children have the ability to leave the campus.
We are asking that the Superintendent and the VISD school board address the
concerns of the parents of Vickers students.
1. Remove the children in these programs from the classrooms and/or from the
2. Hold a meeting ASAP to discuss what will be done to address the concerns of
Mississippi is voting to cut the education budget by $16 million. As we are number number one in illiteracy, highschool drop-outs and teen pregnancy in the country, how can the government consider trying to cut education?
The State Superintendent of Education, Dr. Henry Johnson states "In order to move Mississippi forward, education must be our first priortity. Today's children are the workforce and leaders of tomorrow."
A petition to reinstate parents' ability to gather on School grounds.
We the parents of students attending our Jefferson Township Schools are concerned about the failure rates of our children/students. It appears that parents have voiced their concern an approximately (ongoing) 3-4 yrs. in reference to this matter and the board members have listened and stated they are not hearing enough complaints,nor have the principals of these buildings, and the previous superintendent's. This is false, and definitely not true. Some of us parent's have contacted the Superintendent and the previous Principals to no avail. We were assured improvement would be made and to date it has not, and now our children are also being harrassed by teachers.
If one teacher voices a complaint about a student or more students, then the other teachers that the students also attend classes with are gathered to meet and discuss negatively in a meeting with said child or children. THIS TRULY LOWERS THE SELF-ESTEEM OF OUR CHILDREN AND THEY DON'T WANT TO ATTEND THE CLASS OF SAID TEACHER'(S) NOT KNOWING WHAT TO EXPECT. "WE ARE TIRED AND WILL NO LONGER ACCEPT THIS BEHAVIOR TOWARD OUR CHILDREN." The teaching concept no longer has any regard to the title "TEACHER".
Superintendent Harold Cebrum and the school board have approved a measure to restructure Lynwood elementary, middle and high schools. The students entering the 9th grade in 2004 will go to one school (elimination of one of the two middle schools). The students entering the sixth grade will go back to the elementary schools. This move returns a large number of sixth grade students to severely overcrowded elementary schools and will essentially kill the class size reduction measure instituted last year. Our children are just beginning to climb out of the bottom of the barrel, API wise and this move will definitely put a halt to that progress.
