Parent arrested at a Maryland school board meeting for speaking out against common core

Concerned Hamburg, parents and teachers are under fire by large corporate interests. Finally the NYS Attorney General is looking into Pearson. The local police thugs in Maryland, and no doubt in Hamburg, are empowered by incompetent school boards and superintendents. Schools better get ready for angry parents, common core is a mockery and any teacher who admit they comply with this shit should be fired. Teachers teach kids, not common core.

Jan Amen,

more Parents should be standing up and screaming about this. A few narrow minded parents with an agenda that has nothing to do with kids are distracting the sb and us from the important issues in our school district OUR KIDS. It is personal with a small number of parents. These parents do not represent me or my neighbors. Let's move on to the education of our kids not parents who will not put their personal differences aside with school board members. It is our kids future. Interium Supt inexperienced and in need of our help.

Op out and send the cooperate giants a strong message. Every child deserves and needs a well rounded education which the common core is not allowing.

Op out parents this is the only way this will change. We have our rights and our kids deserve our attention on this issue.

This is happening right here under our noses.

Is this where we are headed? This is America people.

Hamburg Has Police at there meetings for safety reasons. Why didnt they take Tom Flynn away in the paddy wagon when he verbally assaulted the other members and embarrassed Hamburg, again.

Op out and save education. Pearson and campaign contributions are a problem. Op out your kids and we will see change. Thanks concerned for this alarming post.

stop testing by opting our children out. When enough opt out the education dept and the state legislature will have to react to our demands.

Anxiety & pressure for kids and their teachers.



Our kids data is shared in ways we are not informed of.

Opt out all you want, once your kid hits high school they have to take the exams or they won't get a diploma

opting my kids out also said...

I expect my kids to take exams in high school and all through their school years, but we are op out parents. The elementary testing and Possible pigeon holing my kids in predetermined career paths. Sharing these test results in possible future employment as well as possibly keeping my kids from the university of their choice. We don't know parents// what this BRAVE NEW WORLD has in store with these tests. Remember it is a private company Pearson that develops these tests and has the rights to them. If our school sytem doesn't purchase the cirriculium (expensive) are kids are at a disadvantage, because as reported many questions come from the material that many schools cannot afford. We have no right to challenge questions at any level. I will not risk this for my kids. My kids should enjoy the freedoms in education with individual choices that we have all experienced.

What is this a communist country, where we have no right to address our elected officials for fear of an arrest?

Did anyone read the Hamburg Sun? What is Martinez doing to the Boston Valley staff? His secretary and many other teachers have complained and he has terrorrized our building. Take Note- no male teachers at BVS. We are all woman and are getting chewed out by Jim. Please take him away. Ask the secretaries . the teachers at UPES before us adn then at the high school. He is nuts and spends all of his time trying to save his job. He leaves our building in the hands of a special education teacher. We go hours sometimes days with no administrator. I think this is agains the law. Please help us at BVS.

I live and have a couple kids at Boston. What do you mean the school goes hours and sometimes days with no principal. I looked it up on the internet and found a site that says that school in NYS always have to have a certified adminstrator in charge. What the hell is going on? I heard rumors that martinez, achramocitz and Getter all tried to do a big cover up about the fact that Boston did not not have nurse for almost a school year, another requirement. Please school board get rid of this sickness. I had a kid who was told he couldnt be in the talent show by Martinez. My kid is special and he cried and still cries because of the principal. I cant wait til the next school board meeting because i am going to bring signs and stand up and tell the board about this disfunction in Boston. Can we give names to the board, because we are ready to go after these people who are not focused on our kids. no wonder we are at the bottom of the barrel in performance. PLease help us the silent minority.

Hey Hamburg, you are lucky to have this public discussion. You people think its better not to talk about problems in the public? Move to Cuba you communists. Put up the good, the bad and the ugly, be cause it is usually those who are afraid of public speech who are the worst apple in the bunch. Suck it up and those of you who hate this blog be thankful you dont live in North Korea. U are Unamerican.

If you do something horrible to someone, but no one really knows that you did it...does that mean that it is ok?

There is no leadership in this district. A mess and likely to get worse.

tired parents said...

New Board member in July taking the leadership reigns as President of our school board along with an inexperienced 35 year old as supt is a recipe for disaster. What a mess and we as parents are getting tired

more like village gossip and cryer

BVS said...

Remember people the principals are in charge of our kids teachers evaluations. My wife not a teacher advised not to get involved in the BVS principal calls for support, but a relative of ours a teacher told us that her job is on the line if she doesn't publically support the BVS principal. This is simply not right people.

Harrassing for support of himself is more like it.

Hey Tom Flynn- you are being tracked and your comments on the Buffalo News and on this blog are now documented. You are a dumbass- and we are sure the bank will deal with you. You are now exposed you jackass. Really Tom, didnt your daddy teach you anything? Clearly you are as stupid as you look and act. Dont worry Tom- we are on your trail.

Tom Flynns wife Linda is fanning the flame. Who wants to call that ladies boss---god knows there is all kinds of crap you can say about that lady. Really Flynn, you hiding behind your wife's skirt- you are a pussy TOM.

We were called at our house, we have kids in Boston. We were called by Linda Flynn, she asked us to go to a board meeting a couple weeks ago. She said her husband was under attack and if we had any questions called Jim Martinez at the school. My husband flipped out and is looking to send out kids to St. Bernadettes. Are these people sick or what?

What is Tom's wife going to do when her husband runs for
Town of Boston Board for a council seat as a Republican? He is in for a lot of public inspection. Why is the BVS Principal getting involved in anything but the business of our kids at school. Keep the politics out of my kids school.

I have no opinion on the principal but my wife has questions about him and he seems to be at the eye of the storm here.

Laura HEETER is a liar- she is under investigation. Lets see what happens when the community finds out about her "payments" for all the kids and other stuff. I live on the street and the woman needs to get a life. She is a nut just looking for a free ride. LAURA- ITS ALL A PUBLIC RECORD.

Common core was added as a rider to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act signed by Obummer. They snuck it in at the last minute on page 1000 or so of a bill that was supposed to be about stimulus and infrastructure repair. If States wanted the stimulus money they had to adopt common core. UNBELIEVABLE

Went to meeting at Kleinhan's Mark Crawford has taken a brave and wonderful stand against the appr excessive testing of our children. Our legislators are on board with our concerns. We need a discussion on this and dialogue in this district. Concerned we need to get more out there on this important topic for our kids, teachers and principals. This is where we need to be speaking on this MOST IMPORTANT TOPIC. We are opting out to after what we learned Wednesday. We need to do more.

Wow, am I ever glad I moved away. I live in MD and graduated from Hamburg. The nut at the MD meeting was the guy dragged out!!! If he would have sat down and shut up, he would have heard the presentation and been able to ask questions after. Contrary to Hamburg, most districts in MD have thousands and thousands of children. My school alone has more students PK-8 than all of North Collins! Bottom line, I am a teacher and I hate the CCSS but what is more appalling is the name calling and nastiness that this is stirring. I have a recommendation, stop name calling and learn to take all of your frustrations to the public in a constructive manner. I fell truly sorry for the students in Hamburg, all of this is not doing a thing to help them. Thank you so much for reinforcing my choice to get the hell of Hamburg!!!
