Libby Garvey is Anti-Education, Pro-Gentrification

Hello,

We've reviewed Libby Garvey's tenure on the Arlington School Board and we've concluded that the only thing she should be running for is retirement. Whether it was the near-collapse of Abingdon School (her own neighborhood school) in the late '90's before NCLB and SOL or her focus on recreation and sports today, we've concluded that Libby Garvey is anti-education and pro-gentrification.

We don't need or want to continually spend extravagantly for mediocrity. Surely with all the resources available to the Arlington School System we should see the drop-out rate decreasing rather than increasing. It's obvious that Libby Garvey is aligned with Chris Zimmerman's 'final solution'. Rather than providing housing, education, and other services to households that don't earn at least $100,000 per year they embrace the relocation of everyone lacking significant disposable income to the outer-outer suburbs.

Agreed. The planetarium fiasco and lack of support for extending library hours indicates where Libby is coming from. She should not be on the School Board, much less running for VA State Senate.

Rest of the School Board is not far behind.

School Board has meetings to schedule meetings and consultants to advise consultants. Enough of Libby.

I would not mind their spending the money, but I don't see positive results, only more kids receiving a mediocre education.

Thet don't have a plan to adequately educate 5,000 more students. Their consultants don't have a plan. I guess their plan will be to order more crummy energy pig trailer classrooms and hope for the best.

NONE of them care about anyone except Yuppies with large amounts of disposable income. You should really do a thread about this.

Agreed, School Board and all its consultants will deal with educating 5,000 more students when they appear at Arlington schools.

Huge amount is being spent for team sports by the school system to supposedly help combat teenage obesity while snack food vending machines are installed in the schools.

Exactly what is the plan to provide a quality education for 5,000 more students? Or is there a plan?

Ask the School System's consultants.

Libby Garvey is a big BSer. Arlington schools are doing as well as they are because of the parents, SOLs, and NCLB, NOT the School Board and NOT the present and past Superintendents and their staffs.

Libby has been BSing everyone for 16 years. Know how they maintain mediocrity in the school system? By letting problem students drop out. And gentrifying out poor families that don't have the financial resources for their kids to do well in an elitist boutique school system. So yes, Libby Garvey is pro-gentrification and anti-education.

If you don't want the new Walefield HS to be a recreation complex ringed by trailer classrooms attend tomorrow's School Board meeting and tell Libby the present design for the new Wakefield HS sucks.

Your tax dollars at work - Libby and Barbara have spent the past month at their school board and county board offices working on their joint campaign for state senate.

What can I say about a school Supe, like Pat Murphy, who installs more snack food vending machines in our schools while wanting more team sports to reduce the rate of teenage obesity? Hasta la vista, baby. Don't let your Yuptard ass hit the doorknob on your way out of the Arlington School System!
