SCATS ~~ WAKE UP GREECE VOTERS! They want to change the polling locations and reduce the number of them again! Is this an effort to TOTALLY CONFUSE & FRUSTRATE THE VOTERS?

It would appear that all 2800 of them are pretty well confused, frustrated and are fast becoming an endangered species. The other 55,000couldnt care less as to the voting locations.as they simply do not care.

I'm one of the 50,983 qualified voters mentioned in the post. Like the majority of the townspeople, I don't use the public education system and derive no benefit from it. The people that should be participating in the BOE election are the parents of the children in the district who receive a school tax bill and the parents of the children in the district who don't receive a school tax bill because they are not property owners.

The lesser minority of people in the town of Greece who use the school district need to rethink how their tax dollars are being used. The central district organization is inflated with middle management (e.g., assistant superintendents) who hold titles of dubious importance that serves the administration more than the student body. Quite frankly, the parents are victims of clever flimflam artists who have taken them into their confidence with superlative platitudes of leadership excellence based upon their own vainglorious self-aggrandizement.

Ask yourselves this question; how can the BOE believe the marketing pitch of a superintendent candidate who demands to be hired on a private contract as if they should be considered equal to a CEO of a private business that produces a tangible product or service? How can they grant a compensatory package of salary and benefits that exceeds the county executive or the sitting governor of New York, both of whom are public employees and responsible for many, many more persons as well as overseeing discernible vital services provided by the county and the State?

Today's system of primary education has fallen far and away from scholastic standards necessary to prepare students for higher education. It has slowly evolved into academic mediocrity and political group-think that comes from bureaucrats who justify their employment by creating a convoluted process of imparting knowledge (i.e., "Common Core") simply because it's different and not necessarily better.

The children are being ill prepared for matriculation into a university or college learning environment of serious studies and will find themselves in remedial classes that should have been completed in high school. The tuition for those classes will cost as much as the rest of their coursework and add to the mountain of student debt that will have to be paid when or if, they graduate.

Parents should demand the BOE end the practice of hiring superintendents on private contracts.They should demand the district end hiring executive personnel for functions that rarely change or only need occasional oversight (e.g., Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum Instruction and Assessment, Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning and Support Services, etc.).

The cost of primary education is becoming unaffordable for property owners and will only worsen as long as they continue to allow their hard earned money to be taken by coercion at the behest of the syndicate of doctors of sophistic duplicity.

Perhaps the BOE can be separated from the audience by bars or a glass wall.
Then we can call it a Zoo exhibit of duller members of the human race.

Who is selling the auditorium seats from Athena??

Are the taxpayers getting hosed for new seats for the monsters?

If the seats are good enough to sell, why aren't they good enough to use?
