Where does Mrs. Gilkerson, principal of Glenkirk Elementary, reside?

Radicalizing Our Children, For Fun And Profit

5 March 2015 | Schools, Crime | 1 Comment

And here’s some of the rest of the story about ISIS radicals in our schools, and how they’ve been mismanaging the threat, from one of our readers:
The student recruited a former student of OP, someone who graduated last year and who is now in Syria. Well, I guess now we know why the FBI was […]

PWCS, Are You Freakin’ Kidding Me?

24 February 2015 | Schools, Prince William County | No Comments

As PWCS puts out their list of important programs that might face cuts in order to balance Dr. Walt’s ridiculously $17 million unbalanced budget, some folks out there probably aren’t going to overlook a few of the utterly ridiculous “strategic programs” that we’re in danger of having to cut.  Like these two:

40
Strategic Programs
Financial Services
Budget Award Application

PWC Schools Getting Crushed By Illegal Immigration

12 February 2015 | Schools, Illegal Aliens, Prince William County | 2 Comments

Yesterday the Federation for American Immigration Reform released a report documenting that 34.7% of our school budget is devoted to educating “Limited English Proficiency” (LEP) students, of whom some portion are illegal aliens or the children of illegal aliens.  The data in the report suggests this percentage is rapidly growing and should serve as a dire warning […]

Why Does PWCS Think My Kids Need Email Accounts?

5 February 2015 | Schools, Prince William County | 11 Comments

I was so happy to see the permission form my elementary school student brought home the other day that announced that the School system is giving her an email account and a cloud storage account that I won’t be able to access or monitor.  I even get a free copy of Microsoft i360 to install […]

9 January 2015 | Schools, Virginia Politics, Virginia House, Prince William County | No Comments

Prince William County Schools were obviously quite happy to report on the assigned responsibilities for members of the School Board today, detailing which members were the official liaisons to various associations and professional education organizations.  There were representatives to the Virginia School Board Association, the National School Boards Association, the Northern Virginia Special Education […]

Kids School Schools On How To Write An Apology

6 January 2015 | Schools, Humor & Satire, Prince William County | 3 Comments

Somehow I think the apology that briefly appeared on the PWCS website, attributed to unnamed “hackers” who might have been PWCS students, was a more apt and honest apology than the one officially made after the utter disaster of a decision to keep schools open on a normal schedule on January 6th.  You be the […]

New Data On The Cost Of Unaccompanied Alien Children

28 August 2014 | Schools, Fairfax County, Illegal Aliens, Manassas City, Prince William County | 11 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 […]
