The whole situation with our Schools is nothing more than a BIG political circus. The people to blame is YOU the voters who put in place a 5 member Board who has in the past as well as now show --- side stepping, pleading dumb/did not understand what I voted for/against, and any way to not be responsible for their actions. BE READY FOR ALL VOTES TO GO 3-2 MEN TOGETHER AND WOMEN TOGETHER !!!!!!

Badges? Just a kneejerk reaction to a bad and unpopular decision to rescind the uniform policy. Hologram badges cannot be cheap. What is this going to cost the taxpayers? Save on uniforms.......spend on badges! What about the special needs students, pre-school and the kindergarten kids, will they be able to readily recognize the badges? Will there be disciplinary action for employees not properly displaying the badge? Did the board vote on this, or is this an Executive Order by "President" Mallett? What is with the Hat Man Birch? He should not be setting policy about appropriate dress. First he did not understand, then he does understand, but then he does not understand what he misunderstood. Seems like he does not know what is going on, he just votes the way Mallett and Kestner tell him to.

Yeah, this is a waste of time. It's not like someone might walk into a school and "go Columbine" on a group of kids.

This BOE does nothing to improve the concept of education. In other words, they are highly paid "Clowns"

Why not just give them big cowboy hats to wear in class to identify themselves Wheeling Park students?
