Ypsi Board of Education to vote on reinstating Braves nickname! 2

The agenda for the June 25 Ypsi School Board meeting is out and Tom Reiber has put the following item on the action items list.

     h. Ypsilanti High School Nickname Reinstatement Recommendation (Enclosure #9)

All of us with some common sense need to call Mr. Reiber and tell him that the students have selected a new nickname and it’s time for the adults to start acting like grown ups instead of whiny little babies and get over it.  The kids are.

You can reach Tom Reiber at home at (734) 434-1425 and by e-mail at techtom@comcast.net.  Everyone should come out to the board meeting on Monday night and speak out against this.

    This issue has been debated, redebated, discussed and voted on, not once, but twice now. The board has spent more time on this issue than on the budget, union negotiations and curriculum programs. Yet, evidently, this is STILL more important to the diehards than any of those.

    Tom Reiber has protested that every time the board changes some of its trustees certain issues come up again. Yet, this time it is he who is returning to something that should be done already. He does not intend the use of the Braves name to hurt anyone, so, no matter what others say, it must not be hurting anyone. That is hypocracy, closeminded arrogance and blatant racism.

    Spread the word, people. We need bodies in the seats and voices raised in protest of this insanity on Monday night.
