I can't wait until June to vote those girls out! Both Kara and Lauren have failed to keep any of their campaign promises. They have allowed people with NO real stake in this town to run a muck. AND... the "Springfield Sistas" are going to perpetuate the downward spiral.
"Do your job?" Really? How many people have "done their job" well for years, or decades, only to be screwed with terminations, paid administrative leaves (until the individual gets a better job else where), elimination of positions, just plain harassment (again until the person leaves. This has been exasperated since McLoughlin and Donovan took over.How about the school committee telling the taxpayers the financial, never mind the morale, costs of these poor decisions. My mother told me that a high school guidance counselor who was wrongfully terminated just won her arbitration case. The district has been ordered to pay her back salary, back insurance, back benefits. She has been out for over a year and a half. What's that tab? Well over $100,000.00, let alone the lawyers tab, while our kids go without adequate guidance support. (This lack of guidance support was highlighted by this very committee last spring when they publicly berated our guidance staff in televised, open meeting.)This school committee has been nothing but a disaster since McLoughlin and Donovan took over. And she has the nerve to tell employees "to do your job!" Look in the mirror girls.
First it was Scott Lazo's fault, then Jovan, now the current School Committee?Maybe the students are correct? Maybe the teachers really DO suck.The most expensive wasteful Welfare office in Southbridge is on Cole Ave.
