Time for VA State Board of Education to Take Over Wakefield

Yupette, Wakefield H.S. is a mess and things will be worse when the new Wakefield H.S. is completed. The new Wakefield H.S. was designed by Sally Baird, Libby Garvey, Jay Fisette, Chris Zimmerman, etc., to be a recreation-entertainment 'party zone' for not only South Arlington but for adjacent neighborhoods of Alexandria and Fairfax County.

This is a school that has underperformed for decades. Typical response of the School Board and County Board was to bring President Obama to Wakefield to lecture students about taking responsibility for their education. As if 16-year olds have any control over their curriculum and learning environment We don't need any more PR from the Yuppiecrats. We need and want a school that educates our children.

AGREED. It is the worst sort of educational incompetence to brag about the "improvement" in SAT scores when the reason for the "improvement" is making it easy for under-achievers to drop out of school.

So let's see. Arlington Public Schools buck the national trend by reporting a marked increase in SAT scores, and the response is that it's only because they make it easy to drop out of school??? What numbers do you have that show that there was marked increase in the drop out rate from last year to this year?

Dumbass, we expect the schools to educate. Not provide the Elite with 1/3 of each graduating class for low-wage exploitation.

We are tired of paying top dollar for mediocrity, brought to us year after year by the Zimmycrats.

In effect Wakefield is run like the Neo-Cons run their corporations - lowest ranked 1/3 (aka free and reduced price lunch students aka minorities) are told to find other employment or fired. Then the CEO (aka Obama) shows up at the corporate facility and tells the remaining employees that they have to "take responsibility" for the corporation's success.

Arlington School Board and County Board are Weirdos. They just designed a new high school that will produce three types of students - dropouts, sports/recreation professionals and entertainment industry employees.

Typical elitist and racist comment from N. Arlington Elitists and Racists for Baird: "Students who are middle class and below poverty level don't succeed in school".

Wakefield has one National Merit Scholarship semi-finalist this year. So someone had to be studying.

Time to fire Pat Murphy, whose one size fits all program for minority achievement at Wakefield can be summed up up by the phrase - 'throw them a soccer ball'.

Want to know the reason for the increase in SAT scores? More low-performing students who will not be going to college were told not to bother taking the SAT.
