At last week's school Board meeting, 3 Board members (Holtz, Edwards and Melnyk) stated that Virginia Beach Schools "does not have a discipline problem" (Melnyk's comment was off camera).
That isn't what teachers at many schools throughout the district have indicated on surveys conducted by the VDOE.
I believe that the culture of leniency and PBIS-type programs that contributed to the Parkland school shooting, is a big part of the problem in VBCPS. I will continue to try to be the voice of teachers, parents and students who continue to contact me about their concerns on this topic.

The truth is behavior problems are swept under the rug. People are not dumb, the statement itself causes Anderson to look as if she's clueless as to what really goes on. If I hear another admin ask about how they can make themselves ”look” good, I may scream. It's about the kids, worrying about how you look is about YOU.
