This Should Be a Boring Post

September 10, 2009

No, really.

This is supposed to be my mandatory new school year post.

I want to take a moment and remind everyone about all our nation’s schools. Since allot of kids start school this week, (Schenectady, where our two go, started on Tuesday) it’s a good time to think about all our hard working teachers and administrators and to say a prayer for all the school boards out there since they’re the ones who determine policy.

Also let’s remember everyone who works at all the Christian and private schools out there where allot of us send our kids to. And I can’t forget all the parents blessed enough to home school their children either.

Then I want to list all our local school board members like the ones at my old alma mater in Ballston Spa NY. (Go Scotties!)

So here they are. (And since a few of the kids in my Sunday School class go there this is a good idea anyway)

Please feel free in the comment section to list all the members of your local school board as well.

“May all those responsible for our children’s education, fear God and seek His wisdom. May they realize it’s the people they serve (Not the other way around) and to put aside politics and self serving agendas. In Jesus Name AMEN!”

There! That’s how this post was supposed to look. Nice and boring. But no.

I don’t live in Ballston Spa anymore. I live in Schenectady.

Now please don’t get me wrong. My family is very blessed. We live in a nice house in a quiet neighborhood. Our kids are thriving in one of the cities magnet schools.

But there are issues. ISSUES!

They could make a reality series about The city of Schenectady NY. First there’s all the corruption in the police department. Then there’s the out of control drug and prostitution crime of the inner city. There’s the love/hate relationship between the city and The General Electric Corporation. And of course there’s taxes. (and MORE taxes)

If that’s not enough there’s all the scandals in the school board.

If someone were to look at my blog on a click and run they’d see me ranting on and on about my school board. So to then see a list of board members appear they might think I’ve got a vendetta against them. They might want to alert the city about a nutty blogger! 🙂

So let’s set the record straight. This is supposed to be a boring post about our school board members. So let’s start over . .

Even though our heads are still spinning from Obama’s speech last night I want to take a moment and remind everyone about all our nation’s schools.
