HOPELESS CEDAR RAPIDS, IA INTEGRITY MESS

1-4-18

Greetings, Todd Dorman, Gazette Insight Editor &  Columnist, Cedar Rapids School District and City Government Officials, and all—

Todd Dorman’s 500 word column in  the 1-4-18 Gazette had a rare and acceptable Integrity Index Score of 480, as shown in the following table!!  It wisely and factually joined last night’s disgusted school facilities forum attendees who chastised the Cedar Rapids school board for “watching form the sidelines” at the district’s overwhelmingly goofy facilities plan.  It would close and/or rebuild 18 elementary schools, without a public vote, for undisclosed hundreds of millions of dollars hidden in sales tax money, or so school officials deviously claim.  Meanwhile, 1,000 students annually opt out of the academically failing district, and legislators should authorize higher numbers of them to enroll out across the state.  http://www.iowalive.net/readingallstested15-16.htm  2016-2017 test scores and state district rankings will soon be posted on http://www.iowalive.net/ .  Cedar  Rapids’ all grades tested in reading is ranked 288th of 333 Iowa school districts and officials don’t expect the goofy facilities plan to make it any better.  And it won’t!!

Website  http://www.iowalive.net/crschooldisaster.htm previously reported problems with the CEDAR RAPIDS'  DISASTROUS SCHOOLS CLOSING 'MASTER' PLAN .

And ex Cedar Rapids mayor and wannabe governor Ron Corbett sees nothing wrong with it—as he deviously seeks to bail out of the mess!!  And there are no integrity improvement plans in sight—by anyone, for anything, at any time!!!  Run Corbett, run!!!
