THANK YOU READERS WE HAVE HIT OVER 25,000 VIEWS

Please continue to check back to Hamburg Educational Ethics for more information regarding the Hamburg Central School District.  Anyone who has any information you deem important to circulate, please email me confidentially. This blog was created in late November 2010, and as of this morning we have had over 25, 000 views.

WHAT I CAN NOT UNDERSTAND IS WHAY ANYONE WOULD VOTE NO TO GET RID OF THE BUSINESS ADMINISTRATOR. ARE THESE PEOPLE FOR REAL? HE HAS BEEN LYING TO THE DISTRICT SINCE ROSWELL BROUGHT HIM OVER FROM HOLLAND.

Penny for thoughts said...

I would like to point out that many of the page views are people like me who just think of this blog as a little entertainment with no factual information. It is commented on by people too lazy to find out the truth, even when it is presented to them my my peers and myself. It is a farce and 25K views means very little. Just saying.

On the dime said...

Penny for your thoughts. All of the information on this BLOG is based in fact. No opinions other than those who leave messages...some are amusing, and entertaining. Don't tell me you are one of those angry kids who got busted having your grades made up? What adult would actually write, "just saying". Please disprove any information presented. I'd like to have your thoughts, Penny.

Jonathan said...

The blog is being tracked by district administrators. Also being monitored by the media. It has 25,000 views, not visitors. Many are repeat visitors. Can't deny the facts but the fact the author has REFUSED to identify his or herself says a lot about the "credibility" of this website.

Penny For Your Thoughts and all the other disbelievers, my question for you is: why do you keep coming back for more? If I believed everything on this blog was totally fake, there is no way I would waste my time reading it daily. Your post just makes you sound like a fool. On the dime is right, you are probably one of the egomaniac AP kids. I was just starting to hope we had heard the last from them. Let's face it, even the haters just can't stay away.

Jonathan...what bearing, exactly, does the author's identity have on the credibility, soundness or insight contained in this Blog. If you have half a brain cell functioning in your memory banks you will recall that Deep Throat, who was a vital source in the eventual destruction of the incredibly corrupt Nixon administration, was not named until decades after his death. Did the failure to identify him render his input invalid? Your score on active brain cells that are germane to cognizance is zero.

Back to Andrew Fleming... He just happened to be in the Student Council with guess who in charge? Ed Osborne. Ed is Oz not Don Ogilvie. Ed always wanted to be Superintendent and Don came to town and got the Job. They dont like each other very much, which is a blessing for HCSD. Ed was responsible for opening up the original senior lounge for the whole day. When you wanted to skip you could just hang out, Mr. Hood had your back.

Penny for thoughts said...

I may or may not be one of those "egomaniac kids" but that is besides the point. Yes I am a college student who graduated with those kids. All I am saying is that this blog presents a one sided opinion to people who automatically assume the worst and rely on other uninformed comments to get their "Facts." Fact v. Opinion is a topic discussed in ELEMENTARY school. the fact that the people think the opinions are facts simply reduces the credibility of this blog. Finally, when people refuse to even hear the opposite point of view, the blog just loses all of the little credibility it has left. Then it becomes something similar to an episode of Glenn Beck. Biased and based on the opinion of a fanatic.

Dont tell me that Andy Fleming is one of these people who can't leave high school? Its somewhat creepy that adults cant move on past high school, I understand contributing and volunteering time to help ones alma mater but really, what do these people have, Brunners, Kirst, Fisher and Flemings, going on.

BooHoo Jonathan said...

Jonathan, Of course the district is following the blog. duh! They have the most to lose with all this from all this info getting out. As for the media, they should contact concerned hamburger. Jonathan, if you think for one minute that the info on this site does not expose just the tip of the iceberg, you gotta another guess coming to you. Concerned Hamburg needs to start posting more supporting documentation.

Klozman said...

Penny - you do have a point. I intentionally erred regarding the exposure of Deep Throat's identity in my comment to Jonathan (to provide him a comeback) but no one, including you, has exposed this inaccuracy. Disputing opinions is one thing; allowing factual errors to slide is quite another. So, I reiterate, you do have a point.

Some have Oz in their back pocket and went to Hamburg and own business that depend on Hamburg Students. They Build, Sell, Drive, and laugh.

Hamburg Voters should be ashamed to have Mr Fleming as their village judge. In my experience with him, he ought not be seated as a judge. The truth will out!!!

These people own business what do they want from this District? Buisness, whats wrong with that. And pay Taxes.

Anonymous said...

This district is nuts. I worked in NYC as a teacher for several years. In NYC when you speak out against the district they send you to rubber rooms....transfer you to classes you cant teach. Does Hamburg do that? We had a hugely successful teacher who caught the wrath of a building principal, and within a year he was sent to a rubber room and forced out of teaching because they stole his passion. The principal became a district supervisor for NYSED. My guess is Hamburg is the same way, get the principals to be the bully. Its a sick scene. My niece is at Hamburg High School ,and she comes home almost every day with a new story. Hang in there teachers....

Yeah JPS wants business...go check out the underage drinking in that joint. I am sure the State Liquor Authority would have a hey day. But, then again, the village cops hang out in there, and know whats going on. What kind of shady stuff is going on in there? Does Mr JP every tell his RSB member sister about the SENIORS that drink in his restaurant?

Anonymous 7:26. HHS does not graduate students who go to the Ivy League...other than maybe Cornell. A few kids have gone to the Ivy League over the last few years but most are the kids of graduates of the school (Calkins et.al. ) Columbia? Hamburg kids would never match up to Columbia. Hamburg kids cry to the principal to make up their grades for gods sake. If they ever did get into Coumbia, they'd be eat'n alive by real deal students.

From my class, the only graduate of HHS that went to Columbia in the last decade in a half was Lindsey Stephenson, a top notch scholar and athlete. Justin King went to University of Pennsylvania, and Regan Tillou went to Cornell, and Brett Andrea went to Cornell Vet School. Where do the kids go now? Maybe its because Hamburg is not a top ten school, any more. Sadly, I loved Hamburg and its sad to see it go down the tubes.

Down to Alfreds 2 school or ECC so the County and State can stay involved.

Anonymous said...

One Alfred is private one is public. Sadly, the HHS Guidance Councelors never have time to talk to kids about schools, and when they do they dont know much about the schools out there, unless there is a poster hanging on the wall. Besides, the Guidance Councelors to too wrapped up with kids that dont wanna go to class and use them as an excuse, than to work with those of us who are in class and want to learn and go to good schools. One councelor is inept, she forgot to send in my friends NCAA clearance papers. Thats Ok, she looks good with all the turkeys.

My guidance counselor is a hippy who smokes weed. What does he know about college? I did everything and he could get his pothead together to send out my transcripts. My mom came in and raised he'll.

"he'll"?

Maybe that's why you had problems with colleges.

Raise hell. I guess you are right about my access college, I am sure it had nothing to do with the pothead in the guidance department.

To the person who was asked to take notes on teachers by Mr G., can you please elaborate on this? I teach in the district and find this very disheartening. If you cant discuss it, I understand. Take care.

Student said...

Anonymous, 3;13, I am a former student, and school officer, and I guess some kids were complaining to him about a few teachers. I happened to have two of the teachers. He asked me how I like my class, how I was doing and things along those lines. One day after school announcements in the morning, he asked if I noticed anything strange out my classes with these two teachers. And then asked me to make notes on the teachers and the classes. He always called us in and smoothed us into talking about teachers. I did not think it was normal, and felt uncomfortable. I liked my teachers at HHS. I had a few I could have lived with out. But now that I have been out for awhile, I look back and am glad to have had the ones that at the time I thought were jerks. Everyone needs people who challenge them, and so many of my teachers at HHS did that. Sorry Mr G, I dont look back too favorably on you.

Anonymous said...

Thank you student for your response. What a shame this is. I wonder if this is how admin does all of their observations? I wonder who is taking notes on them?

Anonymous said...

Anonymous 5:25. Sorry that you actually have faith in your administration. Usually, MG goes to the guidance dept. to find out the skinny on teachers. You should take caution on that group...they run down to MG with everything. Dont be a fool, some of the teachers in the bldg are MG's spies, including one of your union officers who leaks everything to the admin, and a teacher whose mom was on the RSB. I have watched this go on for years. Its not new.

The Student Council this year promoted various projects to help improve our student body. Each member put forth a special effort. They started their activities with the dedication of our annual Homecoming to Mr. Ravel. Seniors can attribute the opening of the Senior Lounge for the entire school day to this Student Council. Many cold and hungry football spectators were glad to have the council's food booth at the games. Their annual flea market also provided many other clubs with another fund raising project.

Almost 26K...from doing the math thats gotta b 500 views a day. Why aren't the taxpayers storming the palace?

Penny for thoughts said...

The reason the taxpayers aren't doing anything is for the reasons I outlined in my earlier post. The blog is one sided and many people understand that. Also, most of the views are repeats. If I refresh my page because my computer is slow, it is counted as another page view. not effective. As for the comment by 1/17 7:26 AM, I would like to point out that I am a graduate as of June 2010. I have no kids, and I attend a reputable institution. The kids in question had legitimate reasons for to keep their first quarter averages. If you read the posts that my peers, many of which were not in the class, posted on the grade fraud post, and other blog posts which discussed it, you will find that the truth has not been provided by Concerned hamburger, but only one side of the story. please read all information before making an opinion. Only then will I respect it.

Hambuger-- how about the fact that the district is using a paid negotiator for the teacher contract. In the past Asst Supt/Eddie O. did it. Waste of taxpayer $$

On the Dime said...

Penny, Are you telling us that you are the only viewer and you refreshed your computer 25,000 times? Penny, you need to stay in that institution and get yourself an education, something on which HHS clearly failed. It is cute to see the kids stick up for each other. Are you telling us that NYS audit lied, that the administrative salaries are a hoax? Are you trying to convince us, that the voice on the video is not that of Achramo? Have you been to an RSB meeting and witnessed their violations of Open Meeting Laws (Sunshine Laws). Penny, were you one of the kids who had their grades made up in an Economics and Government class, because it is clear you do not understand much about either as presented in this blog. Stay in school, Penny, and check back in 4 years. Reality is a though pill to take, and when you start to pay taxes you will understand that, Penny. And only then Penny, will you see that a penny is not really worth much.

In reading this blog I understand that all are concerned about where there tax dollars are going. This blog looks like it is run by high school students though. The petty stabs at each other and rude remarks, how does anyone expect anything to get done in this barbaric manner? It is called being professional.

BOCES is not looking out for HCSD's best interests and should not hold any reserve funds with money that belongs to the district.

Anonymous said...

BOCES is the master plan to move to county or district wide schools. Of course the public would go bonkers if we suggested county wide schools, so OZ et al are slowly dismantling the community schools that make NYS special (expensive, but special). Just wait til all the kiddies gotta get on a bus and drive to the other side of town for school. Didnt Judge Curtain try that in Buffalo, and that was the end of the communities in the City of Buffalo. BOCES and OZ need to be sent packing.
