Sanger ISD Teacher Convocation 2011


It's a callback to Hee Haw with a nod to Rick Perry. This video has some potential to get some traction. Performers are Superintendent Kent Crutsinger, deputy superintendent Eric Beam, and assistant superintendent Jackie McBroom. (Thanks, Kevin.)

Lyrics:

Eric
There's bus transportation, school breakfast and lunches,
I asked Mr C, he said "That all is fine"
He says he's quite sure that we can do all this
As long as it don't cost this district a dime!

(chorus)
Where, Rick Perry, are you tonight?
Why did you leave us here all alone?
You promised us funding for all Texas children,
But then you heard "White House" and - psssst - you were gone..

Kent
Wonderful teachers, a wonderful school board
wonderful parents, I can't help but think.
If everything here is really so awesome, then
why do I find so much hair in the sink?

Jackie
First there was TABS and then came the TEAMS test
Up came the TAKS - before that the TAAS
Now EOC - it's all called the STAAR test
Standardized testing's a pain in the ....

Do these people not see that Rick Perry is not the problem? If we did away with the federal Dept. of Education with all of it's rules, regulations and mandates that come as the strings attached to the money that all school districts receive, which is never enough, then the local districts could run their own affairs and have only themselves to blame if they under perform. I know this is the conservative approach, along with school vouchers, and it will probably never see the light of day because the liberals want to control education. OK, all you weenies, give me your best shot. Bumper sticker talking points and name calling will not win your debate.

So true. Love it!

10:09 Nail. Head. Good job. BTW libs wanna control education because they can indoctrinate our children. They understand that people either grow up dem and stay that way or they convert to republican. Very seldom do they go the other direction from republican to democrat. Indoctrination helps them bolster their numbers.

Hey 10:09!

Rick Perry was the one who said he could solve school funding by changing the franchise tax back in 2007. That bill/law was/is a cluster @#$%. As a former commptroller employee I have seen first hand the insanity and lack of taxes this new law caused. The law was HIS solution. Now it should be HIS anchor.

10:47, Why is throwing more money at a problem through taxation your playbook answer? Use the money that it is costing us to fund The Dept. of Education and funnel it to the local districts to spend as they see fit without the strings attached from the Federal Govt? It's a hell of a lot easier to hold someone at the local level more accountable than it is a beauracratic red tape agency far removed. See how simple the solution is to that problem?

My gosh! Can't you people just understand the frustration schools are feeling just have laugh along with them? Geeze! This may be the only FUN these people get to have all year.

Usually, that's called an education. I can see why someone who thinks the world is only 6,000 years old would get that mixed up though.

Skippy, Pull all the kids off the field, show them Al Gore's "The Inconvenient Unsubstantiated Truth", teach them how to recycle, show them how to put on a condom, do not use the words he or she and use person instead, have them give up any school supplies they have to someone as less fortunate and tell Adam and Steve that their child is in good hands.

......patting Rage on the head, rubbing his belly and telling him he is a winner so he feels important. Name calling without any counterpoint makes you a loser. I'm sorry you find it hard to understand anything I say after I call you a weenie so that you will know who I am talking to.

Hey 10: 55
Get a clue, throwing money at it was not my answer, it was Rick Perrys answer. And his answered fell flat as a pancake. Quit trying to label every thing with a dem/rep, or conserv/liberal slant. Think for yourself, there is little difference in the two.


10:47 out

Tell Daddy to get back here and govern, or better yet, resign and let us get on down the road.

He can't be an effective governor (is there really such a thing in Texas?) and campaign for national office (lookin at you Kay Bailey).

What are all you baggers talking about? Education is doing great in Texas!! Lottery money is funding all the school districts. It’s not Perry's fault if the school boards can't manage it.

Totally unprofessional for school district admins to do this.

Oh and pathetic too!

Upstairs said...

Here's a Perry fact for you -- While he spouts his belief that big government should stay out of the way and that less regulation is better, he promoted and passed a law that restricted any school district in Texas from starting public school before the 4th Monday in August. Prior to that time, your school board set your calendar. You elected them and they answered to you. He took that right away from you.

I know it is a small point but it is a concrete one. And a fine example of his "no reguluation unless it is a regulation I want" attitude.

Rick Perry is a complete embarrassment!

I am a Republican!

I was a diehard Republican my entire life until Governor Goodhair and the Texas Sledge made it clear how much they hated me and all my colleagues. The answer is not less Federal mandates. The answer is less government period, and if you think the Texas Sledge and TEA aren't doing education in this state a disservice (and by disservice, I mean they are trying to destroy it) then you aren't keeping up.

By the way, I'm not always a Rage fan, but to accuse the Dems of name calling, call the Dems a name, and then claim that Rage can't answer because he called you out on it? Weak. Really really pathetic.

18 years ago the state of Texas enacted the Recapture Program ( better known as Robin Hood ) Since that time, Plano ISD has paid the state 1.2 BILLION dollars form its local school taxes. The money from Plano and 134 other "rich" districts went to 900 "POOR" districts like YOURS. You can't afford good schools. You have to reply on places with money to pay your way. Thats is redistribution of wealth. Plano kids do with less so your kids can have more. You sure can't give it to them. You have your hand out and complained about how much others "give" you.

3:07, I'll type in lower case so it won't go over your head. Less federal mandates and less government go hand in hand. duh. TEA is a democratic front that channels money to the libeal cause. Just look at Wisconsin as an example. Why were the teachers in almost riot mode when they were being asked to contribute to their retirement? Because the union had them bamboozled into thinking the government should pay for it. And now that the conservative way of governing is working, no teachers were laid off, the budget is becoming balanced and the world didn't end for the teachers. I wish the government would pay for my retirement and health benefits! On second thought, no I don't or anyone elses.

i find it funny that these people dont realiz4e that obama cost education not rick in the state of texas we raised the budget for schools from 42 % overall in the general budget for education to 43% to education. our goverment is spinning out of control under obama and spending is going thru the roof i hope to see rick for president so that he will tighten the belts there and get us back on the right track. by the way how come no mention of the amounts of money paid out for illegal immigrants in our public education

10:09 is right, not all Rick's fault. Blame Estes ( YOUR Senator on the finance committee) , Ogden, Schapiro, etc. etc.

Teachers, Working people, and the middle class should never vote Republican. Look what it got us last election. Now we have to buy a pickup for pct 1.

Based on that video, I think I'll apply to teach at Sanger ISD next year. LOVE IT!!!

As long as we are on the subject of schools, I do want to note that I feel sorry for the Decatur elementary teachers that have been turned into pseudo-valet runners/Sonic carhops after school. I waited in the carpool line for the first couple of days until the amount of time it took to get my kid in the car made me feel seriously guilty about the carbon imprint I was making and left me wondering if I should tip the teacher that delivered my kid like she was a hamburger I ordered. I suggest that all parents park and walk to get your children rather than wait in the carpool line. It will save gas, cut carbon, and help the teachers out.

I had no idea Rick was doing that good of a job. All of these posts, and nothing concrete or substantial to the negative.

He must be doing a whole lot right.

Wisconsin was ground zero on the war against working people, so stick together! Cops, firefighters, rail, assembly workers, air, ship, clerical, etc. Hang together, or you will hang separately!

Cops can't strike. Neither can firemen. I see where Verizon workers went on strike and got unemployment pay. The "giverment" is broke and broken and all you can say is lets stick together and bankrupt the country.

Ok teabaggers,
1. Libs control TEA- Are you kidding? Bush & Perry have appointed most of the players since way back when....get your facts right!

2. Texas pays for our retirement and insurance. The local districts pay a portion of our insurance, and match in most cases OUR contribution that they take out of teachers pay for retirement.... again shut your mouth if all you do is lie! Also we don't have Social security. We also pay all of our insurance after we retire.

3. Spending increased for education- Funding stayed pretty much the same....nothing for the new 80,000 student increase we average each year. Would any of you wish to feed and run your household and get to add members of your home with keeping your wages the same, and not be able to raise taxes at the local level as Rick has taken that right away from you, yes he doesn't believe in local control of schools!

Great job Sanger ISD! Too bad that Bridgeport ISD adm. couldn't come with something fun and uplifting for the new year! Instead we're forced to watch the most depressing inservice EVER! And most of it involved things that teachers have no control over! Find some things to affect us positively, we need it...it is going to be a long year!

Wisconsin Firefighters didnt strike, they supported the middle class at their Capital. They said screw the Governor!

Verizon workers arent the problem, they just didnt accept a proposal that whould outsource jobs like Republicans like to do. It's not the workers stupid, it's the greedy CEO's!

People bash Verizon, but if half of Wise County worked there instead of Imperial, it wouldnt look like Juarez!

Maybe part of Sanger's money problem is because they have THREE superintendents...
