SORT BY Relevancy
Dear Witch School Students, Members and Staff,
I am writing to you as the new President of Witch School, International. Ed Hubbard has handed me the reins to run the school and its various divisions, such as Magick TV, the Facebook Pages, yahoo groups, our Ning social site and Pagans Tonight internet radio shows. Of course, I can’t do this without the help of our excellent staff.
In the past few days, I’ve been contacting our staff members to find out how they keep all these projects running and, I have to say, I’ve been impressed! Coordinating our social media sites along with our school also involves the help of volunteers who mentor students, answer questions and help to keep the excitement of our family of projects alive.
Two things that I’ve been asked to do, especially in the coming year are to bring a fresh vision to the school with new ideas and ways for students to be involved and to shift all of Witchschool International into a non-profit religious education organization. We hope to increase the ways that we can serve the Pagan and magickal communities while keeping our historical important role of support for the Correlian Tradition of Wicca.
Let me introduce myself and answer questions, so feel free to call in! Keep in mind, I’m still “getting my feet wet” so I may not know all the answers, but I’m interested in your questions. Questions and suggestions can be sent to me via the ning social site or email@example.com.
According to the "California Watch", with California's public school system facing economic uncertainties...some of the most financially troubled districts have been elevating the payroll for top administrators. One is the Los Angeles Unified School District, the nation's 2nd-largest district, has been buried under a cumulative $2.8 billion dollar deficit for the past five years, and has eliminated more than 12,000 teaching and staff positions. Los Angeles Unified pays Superintendent John Deasy $384,948 a year, about five times the salary of the average teacher. Since 2009 the school district has raised John Deasy's salary by 32 percent. Superintendent Deasy has attracted controversy in this position and other positions. According to the Substance News, John Deasy claims to have earned his PhD at the University of Louisville (UL) in the College of Ed.
The Dean of the college at the time was Robert Felner, now serving a prison term of 63 months for a variety of frauds committed against the University of Louisville, and other universities, which includes misappropriation of a $649,000 federal grant. Felner was also convicted of stealing $2.3 million in research grants. John Deasy got a "fake" PhD directly under Felner in a period of 4 months, earning only 9 credits! John Deasy has been thrown out of other superintendent positions for having this "fake" PhD. Why is the LAUSD Board members allowing Deasy to keep this job? Is it kickbacks? As Superintendent, John Deasy has overseen thousands of teachers losing their jobs. Incredibly, Los Angeles teachers have not received a salary increase in 7 years! The UTLA teacher's union leaders was paid a total of $1,327,172 in salaries, and $444,309 in OTHER compensation, for a total of $1,771,481 a year! It's clear the UTLA teacher's union is in bed with the School District.

Remember being glad Tuesday was here in grade school? No??? Me neither! I actually liked the days when we had Physical Education so I could pass the basketball! I liked choir day, but, Tuesday held no significance to me! It was time to go memorize one more random fact out of context so I could get a good grade! Wow, what was the point (or is the point) of grade school? Oh, to get grades! That's it!

Matt Frendewey is the National Communications Director for The American Federation for Children. Led by the NEA and AFT, the national teachers' unions boasted of spending $80 million in this election to defeat candidates who support vouchers, teacher accountability and other promising education reforms. They lost. And they lost big.
The number one target for school choice opponents was Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, an unapologetic supporter of vouchers for kids in the struggling under-performing schools. The unions spent millions to defeat Walker – three times – and they lost all three times.
The American Federation for Children and the Alliance for School Choice seek to improve our nation’s K-12 education by advancing systemic and sustainable public policy that empowers parents, particularly those in low-income families, to choose the education they determine is best for their children.
