Guest Thread: How Many Non-Resident Children Illegally Attend Arlington Schools?

Hi Yupette,

My kids attend Arlington schools and we live in the Westover community. Is there any good estimate of how many non-resident children attend Arlington schools illegally? That is both parents live outside Arlington.

Thanks in advance for the thread.

Kathy

Didn't we have this thread before? About 400.

Want to know how many? Ask Libby Garvey. She probably knows them all by first name.

A few irate parents posted about this to the Sun Gazette blog but the School Board made McCaffrey remove the postings. Yes, about 400.

I have heard this mostly a fringe benefit to county employees who move out of the county and rent their condos where the formerly lived. It's been going on for well over a decade.

So what? The School Board is as corrupt as the County Board, County Manager's Office, Planning Commission, Transportation Commission, Housing Commission, Sun Gazete, Washington Post, etc.

If the Repigs ran Arlington it would be about 5X worse.

The answer to your question is: Libby Garvey, Libby Garvey, Libby Garvey.

If the RePigs ran Arlington it would be 10X worse. All the money would go to police and fire and nothing to schools.

BTW, the county employees etc., continue to vote in Arlington, using their "legal" addresses of their former condos they're renting to GenYs and GenZs

The School Board is basically dishonest. There should be several threads regarding the School Board's lies about the de facto segregated schools in N. Arlingotn, the test scores charade, the abysmal drop-out rate at Wakefiled, etc.

We already covered the shameful drop out rate at Wakefield. A.Y.

Speaking of Libby Garvey and the Repigs, she was dishing dirt for hours with the Republicans in front of the Fairlington Community Center on Tuesday. Yup, we sure do have a one-party Yupublicrat government.

Why are only 70% of Arlington's children signed up to receive H1N1 vaccinations?

How many persons employed by Arlington County government and who live in PW County are going around getting signatures on their petition to change Arlington's form of government?

Just over 60% of Arlingt's public school kids are signed up. Why? Many right wing media run scare stores about vaccines. No media outlets running anything about how safe the vaccines are.

My mother almost died of influenza last year because the media scared her into not receiving a flu shot.

Arlington government is all B.S. School system ignores the school census and County Board ignores the Census Bureau. County employees who live in P.W. County are allowed to send their kids to Arlington schools as a fringe benefit. My kid's high school sucks (Wakefield) and no one cares. Yes, if I could legally transfer my kid to Yorktown I would do it in a minute. Everyone knows the entire county is corrupt, but the media are just as corrupt so nothing changes.

How many Fairfax and P.W. residents are getting funded by Arlington County to be first responders in Arlington?

Don't you dare criticize the corrupt school system if you have a kid or kids in Arlington's schools. Want to see how fast your kid's grades go from A's and B's to C's?

Hi, Yupette,

I taught at an Arlington elementary school for a year before moving on to I.T. training. I became curious about how many students were non-residents. Well, it's a lot of students, but only 2% or thereabouts of the total students in the school system.

Obama was persuaded to visit Wakefield because Wakefield parents were frustrated with the school board using Wakefield as a de facto training facility for low-wage domestic servants for the "creative class."

Obama told the kids not to drop out. He needs them for skilled technical military specialties, like flying Predators over Afghanistan.

Next on the agenda, Superintendant Squirrel just hired from Fairfax County will declare that trailers will have to be installed at elementary schools because of a shortage of classroom space.

There is de facto segregation across the school system. The school board is a bunch of malicious busybodies who spend their time starting rumors and spreading gossip. Our kids, even those who live north of Old Dominion Drive, are receiving a mediocre education given the money that's being spent.

Agreed. We have bi-partisan county government of, by, and for a bunch of malicious micro-managing snoops and busybodies. All they are capable of is more of the same no matter what the future consequences. They half want another 9-11 to occur so they can do their first responder thing.

I would like to see a thread about the national surveillance state we are becoming. The Arlington police constantly respond to suspicious person complaints, to the extent that they do little else but that and respond to traffic-related incidents. Many of these complaints are nothing but malicious behavior by local xenophobes, the Republicans who are the County Board's pet Nanny Nancys and Snoopy Sams constantly start and spread rumors.

We've run several threads about Arlington's malicious busybodies, rumor mongers, and xenophobes. Suggest you complain to the school board, but only if you don't have children in the school system. A.Y.

Look at what Arlington's moderate RePigs are doing now. Can you imagine what would happen if they took over the Couty Board?
