  1. No, if a student opts for an online cyber or charter school such as PA Cyber, the school has no affiliation with that student. That student chose to go to another school. What does happen however, is the school is now required to pay for that education from tax funded dollars. Schools like DuBois Area do have their own virtual academy that is run from their teachers, but you are still a DASD student, your classroom is just at home.
  2. Because it starts from the top. The principals have no power anymore because if they do anything, the parent then complains to a board member or the super and they get what they want anyway. If little Johnny doesn't like a coach because they don't get enough PT, then call a board member!! Even if they were undefeated they would be investigated. Basically, the DASD has no guts to stand up to parents.
  3. Maybe they can hire a super that knows what they're doing. From what I've heard and from the amount of phone calls, the district is out of control with no discipline.
  4. I agree with what you are saying. Except, WE the people elect officials that are to voice their opinions for the better of the people. WE are responsible for those people in office, WE have the ability to get them out. If WE don't like a specific individual, WE must find a better candidate.
  5. Yea that is my sarcasm but that’s the reality we would be in if they eliminated taxes for education. My point in all of it is the taxes we pay are a small price to pay compared to what it could be.
  6. However, if the public school system is dissolved, the parents would be responsible to foot the bill for each child. The average cost of a charter school per pupil is approximately $6,585. So, if you had three school age children, the cost would be $19,755 out of pocket. That's not a bad deal at all, I'd definitely forego the taxes for that bill!!!
  7. Correct, districts in this area offer the same thing for $100 a day. However, in order to be employed full time you must carry a valid Pennsylvania teaching license, which requires a minimum of a four-year bachelors degree.
  8. That’s exactly my point. The price everyone is paying to watch and educate your children is peanuts compares to what you should be paying. Pre-school at DCC is between $30-40 a day.
  9. I think we should just dissolve the public education system as a whole. That way, every child could get educated at home by their parents. A lot of parents would have to schedule their work around it but I am sure they would be more than happy to do so. They could eliminate the educational taxes as a whole and everyone could use that money how they wish. If parents were unable to educate their own child, I am sure the unemployed teachers would be more than happy to educate a group of children like daycare. A teacher could educate the same 15 students (ones they hand pick) for about $40 a day on the low end. That would allow them to make a about $3k a week and about $108,000 a year over a 180 day school year. It would only cost the parents about $7200 a year per child. I think it would be a nice trade off. I’ll be contacting my local representative.
  10. Ask the local school districts, they can't find enough substitutes to fill the daily voids.
  11. Soon you won’t have to worry about the teachers. If minimum wage goes to $15 an hour you may not have any.
  12. So you’re saying DuBois is now cutting edge and Nextier Bank is like Coach K? Sounds about right. However I believe Coach K earned the court name and didn’t have to pay for it.
