3.  Re-affirm board policy prohibiting retaliation by school employees against faculty, staff, kids and parents for criticism of their conduct.

4.  School district oversight by scrutinizing board members, who question the status quo.

5.  Reviewing administrative policies for value and those that attempt to take over the role of the parent.

6.  Measuring and maintaining effective teaching using tools developed and released by the Ohio Board of Education.
