MARY CARROLL-BOWER, FOUNDER
Three years ago I held a school bus fundraiser to put children back on the bus who had been displaced due to the mile
radius rule of the Springfield 12 School District in Southwest Missouri. I warned that children crossing
major intersections alone or without an adult, would be in jeopardy of being hit by a moving vehicle. To date it has
happened over and over, just as "I told you so!" No one would listen and the School District moved to have my Free Speech
violated by calling the place I was to have the fundraiser and telling them not to let me proceed. I was allowed by the business
establishment to have the fundraiser but the media was blacked out as we had called most of them to cover the fundraiser.
No Press, no people. This week the paper says that even after the last School Board meeting and complaints and question regarding
bus funding that the District School Board still hasn't committed to reinstating the busing or funds for same of children
displaced by thier rules.
I am appalled at the District for thier aloufness and lack of caring for major important facets of wellbeing for
children attending school in thier district. Lack of adequate security, lack of eligible children to ride the bus, lack of
quality food, lack of Parent/School communication, identifying and removing bullies from the school, counseling bullies on
bad behavior with warnings, lack of adequate supply of school books and teaching supplies, lack of screening for teachers
criminal background, over abundance of drug problems and lack of caring...etc. etc.
Carly Tiger and Tommie Stephenson have almost paid with thier lives, and the outcome
is unknown at present as Tommie still remains in a coma from being hit by a moving vehicle and crossing where there was no
crossing guard at National and Grand.

ALL ABOUT US:
Across America you read of problems surmounting within the public school systems nationwide. Be it violence between
children, Drop-out rates, Absenteeism, Lack of Nutritional food in school lunches, Peer pressure, Bullying, Lack of parent
involvement, Mold problems, Building disrepair, or Teacher-student issues, the needs seem too be building without proper intervention.
Now we have the ORGANIZATION to take, file and forward complaints with follow-ups even to the top of the ladder within
the system and beyond the system, to the Board of Education itself. We listen to your issues and we lobby for improvements.
We address those issues by local and national media and referrals to Attorneys that work specifically on education issues.
It's no more the parents don't have a voice, no more the child being bullied and battered mentally without recourse.
No more pack up and move on to the next school over and over again! No more children injured and killed by auto accidents
while walking to school!!
Together we can make a difference in American Schools. We can bring back the caring, we can bring back quality education
without sacrificing our children. Attending school shouldn't be about a "war zone!" At one time America could
boast that it had the best schools within a number of nations. Isn't it time we felt honor again in our children's education
and our teachers?
