Your idea of mediation made sense. I wish the "gang of four" would work with you. They are frustrating many, many involved stakeholders in our schools. I don't see how any of them will be re-elected after all of this mess they have created. Nice try, Steve. Your idea of mediation made sense. I wish the “gang of four” would work with you.

I think not. This is a personnel issue. Unless I've missed it somewhere, I don't think Dr. Williams has asked that the reasons for his termination be made public. Until he does so I don't think anyone else has the right to demand that they be informed. If you got fired from your job, would you want the reasons for your firing to be made public? I think not.

Not only that, their professionalism is in question in how this matter was dealt with. What are they hiding? To be fair, I emailed both Mrs. Adams and Mr. Maple and did not receive a reply. I have spoken with many parents and teachers regarding this situation and the mass majority do not support this board's decision nor their conduct. I do believe that IF their reasons are truly valid, and they were communicated to all, that they would have no problem receiving support. I have yet to be to a board meeting but am looking forward to attending soon. I had better get some answers. My expectation of this board and it's members is that they represent ALL of Perry Township and that EVERYONE in this township has a voice. Remember my name folks: Brett Naum, an active duty soldier with plenty of leadership experience to ensure that this never happens again. I may have to run next time to clean house and upgrade the current standards which are lacking in the professional arena. Denise,

Minutes of Board meetings are public information, and I suggest that those who have not attended meetings look to those instead of rumors. "Let's Think About This" is right; this is a personnel issue, and I wish community members would be patient enough to let things get worked out between those who were hired or elected to deal with it. Teachers should go on teaching, and parents should go on parenting. Stand up and speak at Board meetings if you so desire, but the Board has made its decision. Personally, I will sit back and wait for the facts to come out in due time. Our kids are still being educated, so I don't see a need for an uproar. They have disclosed some facts.

I am a master at research and have read the minutes. What I found in those minutes were simply accusations. Simple as that. Again, I have to ask: What is Mrs Adams and her supporters hiding? If they have some valid facts then they MUST provide them. They work for me, Joe Taxpayer, and I had better get answers when I ask. I do not have a problem with the suspension of Dr. Williams if there are valid supporting facts to support this move. I do have a problem with it being handled in a completely unprofessional and unethical manner. The scariest part is that these same individuals are involved with the education system! What a pathetic example for this community and their own children. If their conduct continues I will guarantee to place every effort possible in having them removed from this board. I also favor a lawsuit on behalf of this community against each individual. If anyone knows what this process involves then feel free to email me at brett.naum@us.army.mil. I will gladly assist every way possible. Denise,

I live in Pike Township, where we have a board that supports what the community believes. I do not believe a school board should put their own beliefs above those of the communities. I am shocked to see that they have that much power. I am posting under Mr. Maple's page because he seems to be the most legitimate voice of the people, perhaps it is because of his education and background. If we all viewed this from an economic perspectvie, the ratio of energy expended and produced is ridiculous. Let's get back to the basics, and put the children first. Actions speak louder than words, and if we, as adults can't show them a good example of how a community and society should act, then what good will the words that we teach them in schools do?
