the kids at Isaac young middle school are hard worker’s and we all work hard toward our work in school.our principal Anthony Bongo is a very good teacher and principal at our school our school is one of the best school’s at there in new Rochelle and we have won an award for it and the rest of the students and i are very hard worker. okay maybe the students and i have our up and downs. but dose it matter about how many copies machines in it and the advance class in a school? dose it? anyway the real matter is never judge a book by a cover look inside and read a couple of pages. do u get what i am saying.Our school haves a very high number of students and they work it. And put up with us all that you to Mr.Jose Martinez the Administrative Dean and Mrs.Tawanda Robinson Assistant Principal and Mr.Anthony Bongo our school principal. they all put up through a lot with me and more of the students at my school they provide our education in our school. so do not judge a book by the cover!

  1. Ask one of your teachers to
    Ask one of your teachers to help you write your blog posts. You need help on spelling and punctuation. It is good that you are willing to post to a blog; but when you post, it illustrates a point.

    When you get to high school and have to write a term paper, and if you write it like you write your blog post, you will likely get a bad grade. With those bad grades you will not get a scholarship for college.

    Now is the time to work on your writing skills. Instead of defending your school, which is admirable, think for a minute. I can see you are ambitious and eager and I don’t want to discourage you. Even if you don’t go to college, you will need to write properly to get a good job. Now is the time to learn.

    1. the blogger is correct, but
      the blogger is correct, but I admire the youngster who took the time to write about his feelings about his school. What it tells me is he is highly motivated and loyal and he and his classmates deserve the best we have to offer. Everyone knows the financial issues, many people know the territorial and cultural/class issues that make it apparent that things work better in one part of town than another.

      I know teachers from throughout the entire district. I would match some of the Isaac, Jefferson, and Trinity faculty against any of their counterparts in the city. The problem is most more complex and endemic in the fabric of the district structure and how people get into leadership positions that determine how funding is obtained allocated, and how staff is assigned.

      A few modest proposals

      1. the board needs to undergo significant changes in the way it approaches oversight, policy, process and transparency.

      2. the City has both a business and moral responsibility to the citizens to get actively involved in the educational structure and process and drive the voting base towards meaningful change.

      3. Our best, brightest and most experienced in-school managers must be assigned to our most “at risk” schools and if needed, paid a premium based on productivity to move their students forward.

      4. The attitude of money fixes everything as well as an inability and frankly unwillingness to collectively bargain with the Union on matters of benefits and pension benefits must change. FUSE must pull their weight — join the majority of society, unionized or otherwise, who are making concessiions. No more Sweetheart Contracts; no more politicizing appointments. Put the best people in the hardest jobs, compensate them, and let them make the lion share of funding and other decisions affecting their businesses. If the current Superintendent cannot handle that, let him find another position that will pay his handsome salary.

      5. Demystify and cut out the unnecessary interference from the staff educrats on curricula and I will bet you teachers will feel empowered and motivated if allowed to simply meet course objectives for a term in their own way. They are damn good… better than the people they report to as a rule …. let them do their jobs. After all they are handsomely paid, given lots of time off, and should not argue about being trusted.

      6. While you are at it, demystify the so called “teaching to the test” and “no child left behind” nonsense. Simply make sure that curricula is based on material that gets into the test period! Assign the right work, help the kids who need special care, and as they did years ago, things will work out.

      7. Get off this social engineering and political correctness nonsense. All kids can learn but not all kids are “sold” on the importance of learning. Don’t pander; instruct on the basics and go on from there. Reinstall corrective action and appropriate discipline. Make sure that our immigrant students are taught and taught appropriately.

      8. Adtively involve the community but not as naysayers or evaluators. Install in them the need to ensure that the kids from their neighborhood succeed. Let them fight the infrastructure and go back to their neighborhoods and work with clergy, community leaders, etc… to work on whatever can be done to educate kids who, in many instances, suffer from peer pressure, ease of competing music, TV, cell phone, etc….. it is less drugs than it is violence and distraction. Change the formula.

      Young blogger; if I knew who you were I would sign you up as a student leader regardless of your current writing skill level. My first boss told me something I never forget — you can teach skills, but you cannot teach attitude. You will learn the necessary skills given your positive attitudes.
