Receivership: A court order whereby all the property subject to dispute in a legal action is placed under the dominion and control of an independent person known as a receiver.
Receivership is an extraordinary remedy, the purpose of which is to preserve property . . ., Receivership takes place through a court order and is utilized only in exceptional circumstances and with or without the consent of the owner of the property.
“At her State of the City address Wednesday, the mayor called for a “receivership district . . . “Let me be clear: This is not mayoral control,” Warren said . . .: “It’s not doing anything with the current structure, or the current board.” (D&C)
Being a lawyer, Mayor Warren knows exactly what the term “receivership” means. In the case of schools, the property in question is not the physical school building, it is our children.
The owners of the property, “our children” are our parents who have no say in the matter of a court ordered decision.
Once again our government is using its power to deny our children an excellent education and our parents the right to fight for that education.
Receivership is simply another means by which “hedgehogs” can control public education.
Creating charter schools to segregate and discriminate against inner city children was just the first step in the control of education, this is the next.
Private companies being awarded a school to manage with little regulatory oversight or standard for success will not help our children succeed educationally.
Leaving the same people in charge of a failing district, who are doing little of any relevance to achieve student success, will achieve even less.
It is up to the citizens of Rochester to demand that our current educational leaders create a system of public education in public schools that insures every child receives a developmentally appropriate, Arts based, experiential education concentrated on discovering, developing, and directing their individual gifts and talents towards becoming knowledgeable, actively engaged citizens who will know and understand that the only “receivership” necessary is for our children to receive and excellent education.
