Wakefield Students Grade Classrooms C-Minus, Activities A-Plus

Hi Yupette,

Just to let you know that my kids think the classrooms in the new Wakefield HS are dismal but give the activities an A+. School will be open to the public on September 22nd, so you can see for yourself.

Nice to see you in Fairlington last night. Wasn't Jim Moran a hoot? Yes, he should retire.

When do the "relocatable classrooms" arrive?

I also attended the Fairlington Democratic Ward Heelers Association meeting last night. Where were the so-called 'journalists' when Jim Moran was grilled about his pay-to-play activities with his defense contractor buds?

Ace Sun Gazette Journalist Scott McCaffrey was doing something involving cucumbers.

Classic Jim Moran in Fairlington last night. Defended a program the Air Force didn't want to benefit one of his defense contractor campaign contributors and then spoke at length about being against waste in government.

Highlight of the evening was when Moran told the audience that drinking water obtained from the Potomac is full of toxic substances.

Gee, I wonder if Congressman Moran is familiar with Jay Fisette's anti- single use bottled water agenda?

Jim Moran has become such a Nannycrat he should work for AOL-Huffington Post if he ever decides to retire.

Wait a year and see if there's any real difference in student performance or if it's going to be a new school with the same old problems.

What did you expect? The school was designed with sports-activities-recreation-entertainment as priorities.

What a charade. I had to laugh when I looked at the architectural drawings. Classrooms were added to the Wakefield sports-recreation-activity complex as an afterthought.

What did you expect. The Urban Village Idiots' hand-picked Guru of Education - Superintendent Murphy - earned a Ph.D. in Recreation.

I wondered why the local media were treated to a preview of Wakefield's extravagant 'activity space' by Guru of Recreation Pat Murphy.

You forgot the part about the school becoming a 'community center' for residents of Arlington, Alexandria, and Fairfax County.

Anyone see Alexandria or Fairfax County building public sports-recreation-activity infrastructure anywhere near Arlington?

You forgot the part about the 100? 200? non-resident students who are allowed to illegally attend Wakefield.

We raised the issue of Wakefield's design in 2009 but were ignored.

Wakefield is the product of a completely corrupt county government. Wakefield was not designed to be a high school. It was designed by a Fairfax County architectural firm to be a school annex and community center for Skyline-area residents of Fairfax County.

Know what Wakefield students are calling their classrooms --- after 2 weeks? Dungeons.

The so-called "community process" for Wakefield's design was facilitated by the Eighth District Democratic Committee.

You would think that Scott McCaffrey, who has something to say about everything, could take time from his fall squirrel census and trudge his pudgy body over to Wakefield when school lets out in the afternoon and count the students walking home to Skyline.

He can't do it because that would be investigative journalism, which has been forbidden by an edict from Reitsfuhrer Zimmerman.

Aren't a couple of 'school resource officers' assigned to Arlington's public high schools? Surely the police have good information about the number of non-residents attending Arlington high schools illegally.

Yes, kids are already calling the classrooms dungeons.

Yeah, Wakefield is gonna be a 'community center' for Fairfax County residents who live across the street, operated by Fairfax County residents employed by Arlington County Parks and Rec.

Don't show up when school lets out to count all the Fairfax County residents picking up their kids and kids walking home to Skyline, or some school administrator who lives in McLean will report you to one of the school resource officers who lives in Centerville.

Student 'performance' will 'improve' through implementing gimmicks like transfers and telling students who say they are not interested in college to not bother taking college entrance exams.

What are they "teaching" our children? How to be real estate agents and insurance agents?
