    Looks like a Friends And Family election. Turnout is, what, 1-2%?

      Publius looks like charter school board election had 0% friends and family turnout! At least the community is offer that “right”. How much you want to bet Debbie Hudson will push to move board races to the general elections! She better get it done soon because come November 2014 she is political history! Maybe she can teach Political Science down at Newark Charter high!

    Way to go John Young! Rodel. Former Mayor Baker, Markell, Murphy, Publius and other naysayers couldn’t shut you down! Clearly the parents and votes likes you poke-em in the eye style! Big win for the parents!

      74 people swung the vote at CSD. Ok. This whole arrangement is wrong. Yes he won. Congratulations. We have a broken system. Same goes for all districts.

      Colonial? Wow, 100 people decided on 1 of 7 people (15%) to manage a $140 million budget. This is not the Jeffersonian ideal. 100 people is less than 1% of the electorate.

      More families choose charter schools every year than voted in TEN of these elections. So by comparison, charter choices are 10 times as compelling.

      Debbie is right. Move this to the general election date. At least give it the appearance of legitimacy.

      I wonder what percentage of teachers vote. I mean, they are there all day and they know about it. How does anyone else even know about it? Not everyone reads Kilroy

      “More families choose charter schools every year than voted in TEN of these elections. So by comparison, charter choices are 10 times as compelling.”

      Poor analogy publius! It’s kind of admits that the failure of three charter who couldn’t even fill 40% of their seats next fall sends a message charters aren’t in demand re: parents but rather in demand for those determined to destroy traditional public schools.

      John Young has refrained from calling you the H word and your congratulations was a cheap shot! A system is broken when parents don’t get a vote on who their school will be. Don’t blame the system because people are lazy and don’t get out and vote! As far as Rep Hudson she’ll tried to move school board elections to the general election so the big R power machine can do a better job of getting pro charter people in. Wasn’t Hudson on Pencader’s first school board?

      Kilroy, you are wrong. For someone who regularly combines more than one message in a post I’m surprised you are intolerant of the same from me. Ok, I’m not surprised :-). So I’ll distill the first message and add to it.

      John, congratulations on your win. You put yourself out there regularly and with obvious passion for what you believe in. Most people are not nearly as invested or involved on a volunteer basis, and on that score you stand out as a citizen-leader for which you should be truly proud. I trust that you will keep all CSD residents’ views and wishes in mind as you serve your second term, the district is large and diverse in the views of its citizens. Best wishes going forward, and may the best ideas in public education prevail for the benefit of the community.

      Sincerely,
      Publius

  6. 340 total votes in Christina and barely 100 in colonial. That’s wildly sad and show where the true root of educational troubles lay.

    • The election results show how neutered a school board is. in each district the total vote is less than the staff employed by each district. A change is really needed here in those working in the schools where the voting is going on cant even walk 50 feet to vote.

    • Not all staff live in District where they work, so 50ft analogy is off.

    • john – you have over 2700 staff. 340 votes is barely more than 10% of the staff. so 90% of staff live out of district? Come on. its shows the complete apathy of school boards

    • Yes, it was supposed to be toward. Or probably more appropriately at. The question now begs – how much did these elections cost; from the election department to fundraising to union contributions, etc. colonial has 10k students and the vote represented 1% of the total population.

  7. I am not making that assertion at all,merely pointing out that all staff voting is not legally possible due to residence requirements. Also, not all schools are polling places.

    Lastly, I would concur with your apathy statement if you had written “towards” boards.

    But since you wrote “of” boards, I personally disagree very much
