Another Open Letter About BLM

Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Everyone in Wellesley would love to see every form of bias and intolerance disappear forever.  We support the dignity and common humanity of every single life in this town, state, country, and the world as we know it.  We want the best for all of Wellesley’s children.  One of the reasons our family moved to Wellesley was for its excellent reputation in public education. Stop labeling our children/students by identity. There is no place for indoctrination, divisiveness, victimology, schools replacing parents, one-sided politics, lack of academic rigor and students turning in students for “micro-aggressions”.
Wellesley is in the national news now for all the wrong reasons.  Our public school system is losing its rankings, and will have law suits brought against the town.  Valuable class time is used for indoctrination instead of learning.  Neighbors are calling other neighbors “racist.” School children are making videos saying that “we are born racist.”  Our school administrators are allowing students to take over school time meant for learning, and our school staff often behave unprofessionally.  We parents are not consulted in matters that directly impact our children and families.

Wellesley Ranking Decline: Open Letter From Concerned Parents

Dear Members of the School Committee and Dr. Lussier,

I trust that you have had access to the recently published rankings of Massachusetts elementary and middle schools, found here:

Regardless of how much value you may give to these rankings, to have our highest elementary school ranked 15, most below 25, and our middle school not even in the top 40, while spending more in our schools than the vast majority (if not all) of towns in our state cannot be acceptable. The also recent, more objective MCAS scores further reflect that state of affairs, with our schools showing mediocre performances at best in relation to the state. Certain subjects in certain grades were even below “meeting expectations” (!).

Given how long this decay in academic standards in our schools has been going on and given the comments made by Dr. Lussier and by our high school principal, Dr. Chisum, when the equally embarrassing high school rankings came out earlier this year, I cannot help but wonder whether any of you even care. In light of our resources, especially in comparison with that of other towns, I’m afraid that I am unable to see any explanation for this scenario other than a combination of ineptitude and omission from you, while also having your priorities woefully misplaced. I certainly cannot fathom the alternative, which would be academic neglect by design.

You are failing our children and our town. Hopefully a recall provision for the School Committee will be introduced and approved and we, the people, will exercise more control over our children’s education.

Wellesley’s Enrollment Decline vs Peer Towns

Wellesley continues to see a decline in enrollment, which Wellesley Concerned Parent’s believe is a result of the continuous academic decline. Parents are choosing to remove their children from the public school system. In fact, amongst peer schools in the area, Wellesley has had the second largest decline.
