"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

This includes ALL people. Newton County please make sure your vote is for "content of their character".

John Douglas loves power where ever he can find it. It's not about the job with him. It's about the status it provides him. He has been the same since he was on the school board. He is sneaky. He will set things and people in motion to make sure of certain outcomes politically. What happened to good, honest, hard-working, law abiding folks running for office on their own merits. There are a few still out there. The upcoming elections in Newton County may be the most important in years. We MUST elect or re-elect people we feel are the best to lead our community back to a place we are proud to call home. Personally, I don't think John Douglas is that person.

Yes congratulations to all schools in Newton County that continue to improve and post scores above or equal to state average. Congratulations to NC Theme School, Mansfield, Heard Mixon and East Newton for their amazing scores. These schools have every right to stand tall and be proud of their accomplishments. Their staff and administrators as teams worked hard everyday to accomplish these goals. Oh and as far as 100% pass rate, NO child is expected to be perfect just committed to their education.

Thank you Mr. Meadors for the support you give the teachers everyday. Thank you for having the courage to speak your mind on topics important to teachers. I truly hope the other members did not join in on this "witch hunt" and violation of the law.
