New Data On The Cost Of Unaccompanied Alien Children

28 August 2014 | Schools, Fairfax County, Illegal Aliens, Manassas City, Prince William County | 7 Comments

As the Prince William County Schools and the Board of County Supervisors continue to peddle the line that the “Unaccompanied Alien Children” program isn’t causing any “problems” for schools and other local government services, they’re resolutely refusing to release any information on the impacts this influx of juvenile illegal aliens to support their claims.  They […]

Screw Class Sizes, Give The Kids Shiny New Toys

23 July 2014 | Schools, Prince William County | 5 Comments

There’s not enough money in the state budget for education? I’m calling BS on that tonight after learning that some corporate lobbyist for Microsoft managed to get a budget item inserted that has the Commonwealth buying a slew of tablets to hand out to ninth graders next year. I just can’t wait to see just […]

Are We Embarrassed Yet?

23 February 2014 | Schools, Manassas City, Prince William County | 29 Comments

 This year’s VEX Robotics state championship at both the High School and Middle School division levels were dominated by a small private school in Manassas.  Not some deep-pocketed private school that educates children in state-of-the-art, LEED certified, renewable energy-powered, technology laden campuses delivering a Pearson Education curriculum, but a pretty spartan school that still uses […]

End The War On Pizza

16 February 2014 | Schools, Prince William County | 4 Comments

In Prince William County budget season is once again upon us, and that makes it time for government officials to talk to us about pizza.  Apparently we eat too much pizza, as it seems that every year they lecture us that if we do not reduce our pizza intake by some arbitrary amount and hand […]

Let Loose The Charter Schools

28 August 2013 | Schools, Virginia Politics | 6 Comments

Education policy was the topic of Ken Cuccinelli’s statement on the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s march on Washington, and it’s a policy area where we in Virginia haven’t had much in the way of bold new proposals in the past.  Sure, Virginia is a signature state for homeschooling, but that simply allows […]

Obama Beers

In the middle of June, Prince William County Schools announced they’d be participating in a USDA program to provide free meals to any children up to age 18 in the county’s Title 1 schools during their summer sessions.  No questions asked, a kid shows up and he gets a free breakfast or lunch.  At the local elementary […]

Taxpayers Subsidize Lunch For The Highest Paid County Employee

21 February 2013 | Schools, Prince William County | 12 Comments

The Prince William County School Board, dutifully carrying out the orders of Superintendent Walts, has been loudly bemoaning the prospect that our taxes might only be raised by 3.53% instead of 4% in the county and that the resulting cuts from the anticipated increases in spending will just be impossible to bear.  Well, it’s time to call […]

The Propaganda In Our Schools Needs Improvement

7 February 2013 | Schools, Prince William County | 4 Comments

The Prince William County Schools are very proud to let taxpayers know that this is “School Board Appreciation Month,” an opportunity for public employees to devote their efforts towards praising and honoring the politicians that oversee them.  This month they take time out of their busy schedules (that are, as they consistently report each budget season so […]

Student Suspended For Antibiotics?

18 January 2013 | Schools, Prince William County | 4 Comments

Here’s your latest brain-dead bureaucratic foul-up: A freshman Osbourn Park High School student gets caught having penicillin in his gym bag, so they throw the whole “zero tolerance” stupid book at him and suspend him for five days. Yes, it’s a serious problem when students bring prescription medications prescribed to them into school, moreso […]

Once again I am pleased to be in the house district represented by Delegate Bob Marshall.  According to NBC4, Marshall has submitted a bill to have Virginia schools designate staff members who would carry concealed firearms on school property, and be in a position to respond to emergencies.  While the proposal is certain to draw […]

Show Me The Money, PWCS

29 November 2012 | Schools, Prince William County | 6 Comments

Recently we heard from School officials that there’s pretty much no way to cut spending in Prince William County Schools.  If we’re supposed to place any trust in that statement I have one simple request: show me the money.
If I want to find information on how Prince William County is spending our money, it’s not that […]

How The Standards Of Learning Makes Our Kids Stupid

3 June 2012 | Schools, Prince William County | 3 Comments

My fourth grader doesn’t like Social Studies very much this year.  Given that the curriculum this year consists of little more than simple rote memorization for the Standards of Learning test, I can understand that.  To compensate, in our family we read excerpts from books about American history we think our kids would like at […]
