This was posted by my friends at hippy freaks. It really sums up my upcoming battle with the Great Falls School District:
The world does not need tourists who ride by in a bus clucking their tongues. The world as it is needs those who will love it enough to change it, with what they have, where they are.
If you live in Great Falls and your kids have been bullied, please, I need to hear from you. Only together can we get this district off their collective bottoms and make it a safe place for our kids. I've already been warned that the Teachers Association will stop at nothing to discredit me and my family. Guess what, I'm not afraid of their mafia style tactics, I will make sure that Great Falls isn't the next Sandy Hook or Columbine, we will not put education above safety or career before our kids. I'll be posting a lot in the next few weeks to help educate parents to their rights and the their child's rights.
No Child Left Behind is important, but never more important than safety both physically and mentally.
I've gotten comments that I'm not being fair to GFPS, this is not true. I've attempted to work with the system to effect these changes, I've met with comments that it is none of my business, or that that's just the way it is. I think not. GFPS will soon get a wake up call that it can not financially afford to continue to allow bullies nearly unlimited chances to harm others.
Incidentally, I do welcome teachers to join us in ending Bullying in the schools. I nothing but the highest respect for the teaching profession. I'm not sure the "warning" about MEA-MFT was a warning or a thinly veiled threat, I do know that working together we can make a bright future for the kids in Great Falls. We don't have to do the slow method of progress that allows innocent children to hurt.
