Terry Trobiani's Statement To the D-26 Board

Charter group member highlights opportunity, choice, options, alternatives and competition in statement.

Terry Trobiani's Statement To the D-26 Board

Vision Group board member Terry Trobiani made the following statement to the Cary School District 26 Board of Education at the Monday night regular board meeting.

Before I became involved with this charter I had heard how disgruntled the Cary community had become regarding their school district and the level of education their children are receiving.

I had always believed a school board was there to protect the interests of
the taxpayers, the parents, the students and education itself.

After my involvement with this Board I am no longer under that impression. Federal, state and union regulations and laws have bound the hands of our school boards.

These restrictions will get more plentiful and more strangling on this district in the near future and will prevent them from creating a better environment for our students. 

This is a competent board, very knowledgeable and intelligent. Unfortunately they are kidding themselves if they think they are in control of our destiny
of our students. Unfortunately their best efforts and widest dreams cannot solve these districts problems.

I could see how personal egos; personal agendas and lack of accountability and responsibility have caused recent decisions to be made.

This board needs to realize that the only way this district is going to successfully increase the level of education, increase the moral of teachers, bring back classes that have been lost and help increase the home values of its residents is to embrace alternatives.

Alternatives, which have been proven within districts as close as 20 miles away.


A Charter School: gives the community - the students - an option for an alternative education.

If you don’t want to attend, don't but don’t deny your neighbor the option it provides the parents and the students the given right to make a better choice when those in charge of making their choices and decisions have failed them a charter does nothing more than force the current board to tighten their belts - make better decisions and be accountable and
responsible for their actions.

 

Make no mistake about it -- We are competition!!

Competition forces you to:

tighten your belts in spending
create better products - our students
create alternatives to stay on top
reorganize to optimize potential
make decisions for the good of the community and the students because ultimately that is why you are here !!
