These famous words were uttered by faux news anchor Howard Beale in “Network” and explain why I decided to enter the arena and run for Cincinnati School Board this fall. Have you ever went to Dusty Rhodes’ website and see how much you pay in property taxes to Cincinnati Public Schools twice a year? Go here and take a look: https://wedge1.hcauditor.org Here is something to keep in mind… Cincinnati Public Schools newest tag line is “We are the best urban school district in Ohio!” What does that really mean? It means in 2017, CPS state ranking was #574 out of 606 and in 2018 CPS moved up to 572 out of 606 districts. What a great return on investment for our dollars!!
In short, we have an education crisis in our community that NO ONE is talking about. Lucky for us, Walnut Hills, SCPA, Dater, Gamble, Sands, and Kilgour save CPS from state takeover each and every year.
Education is the Great Equalizer. Every Child is a gift from God and deserves a chance to succeed. It’s not happening. That’s why, (among other reasons) I am mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.
Do you agree, we can do better? If so, vote Megerle for Cincinnati School Board, November 5th.
