Had the school committee listened to us earlier, this current situation could've possibly been avoided ... Submitted by a member

We screamed, hollered, begged, and pleaded. We were genuine, vulnerable and authentic. No dice!

You ought to be ashamed of your self, Jack Nobrega! Lou is not the problem! WAKE UP and smell the coffee! Hopefully you and Pia will go out at the same time. I respected you at one time!

Elephants have large ears. The school committee...well...

Superintendent Pia Durkin is a carpetbagger with crusty bottles of Hocus Pocus potion tucked inside. The mayor and SC bought themselves a side-show carnival act. It ain't over til the fat lady sings. Peanuts, anyone?

NBPS is run like a thrift shop. We recycle leftover rejects.

She was hand picked by mithell chester and mayor Mitchell
Why do you think we are getting 150,000 for the parker school? And it is the only one not under an outside receivers control! These are the questions that Holyoke and Boston should be asking devalePatrick

Superintendents come and go like the weather. Who did they have issues with or piss off? Maybe the mayor and SC? We don't make these choices or have a voice in the selection so get real.

You know, I didn't ever hear a word of complaint against Mr. Shea....Dr. Francis either.....but of course, Mr. Shea was only temporary, and Jon Mitchell dismissed Dr. Francis with a wave of his golden pen. I also don't hear a lot of complaints about Mr. Longo, mostly reminiscences about how good things were when he was in charge! So you can take your "imagined" unsatisfiable teacher theory and put it where it belongs!!

My children were students at NBHS when Mike Longo was the Head Master. Yes, there were "incidents" but they were dealt with and I don't mean that the teacher was blamed. My children got an excellent education. All went on to succeed in college and in their chosen professions. They succeeded because they had great teachers and two parents who made education a priority. They were also taught RESPECT and were expected to always be respectful to their teachers and fellow students.

Respect is gone for the most part at NBHS. Students don't respect their teachers, fellow students, or themselves. Pants are worn well below their butt crack, and electronics are everywhere! Of course, many don't respect their free education or free/reduced breakfasts and lunches either! What a society we've created! It is one of "entitlement," so why work for anything? I'll just keep playing my rap music and accept handouts while the teacher is teaching! What's so hard about that!?! Education needs to start at home by one or both parents who really care. Teachers everywhere wish we had more parents like the one posted above.

Had the superintendent, mayor, and school committee members listened to us and implemented zero tolerance back in the fall of the year when teachers were being assaulted and it was brought to their attention, the students in the district would, most likely, not be running the schools.

A proven leader, as the mayor stated, would NOT allow this violence to occur!!!!

Failures: Durkin, Mitchell, and S/C. All need to be replaced.

Are you joking me? Under what super was the union happy?? You can't be very old. The union was finally happy under Nanopolus. I'm pretty sure I didn't spell the name correctly, but when he was in office and Longo was running NBHS things were going WELL!
