Sort of shocking but still not surprising that some of these board members cannot bring themselves above personal and I guess cultural agendas. Sad sad day to be represented by two of these who can't own up to their agenda. But thank the good Lord we have three who are bold enough to get it right. Districts 2 and 4 please think hard about who you vote for next time. Too late for about 4 years.
White kids need to play the game because almost all of them can legitimately say they have one or more backgrounds way back down the line. Then they can get these freeby awards for minorities.
Here is my input right here. Listen to Mr. Meadors and learn to say no to new spending requests. Hire Sam Fuhrey to run the system. Eliminate as many jobs as you can through attrition and resignations like the Carpenter one at the central office - not needed as Barr does all the work. Ask each principal to identify 2 people he/she can do without and make it happen. Get math achievement up to snuff please. Bring Ken Proctor back to do school improvement.
I think the interviewing for the new superintendent ended based on the news articles last week. So what we need to do now is find out are they considering for one second hiring someone from outside of the county who will not move to Newton County. We need a superintendent who thinks Newton COunty is good enough to move to and live in - if not then they should NOT be hired.
@eyeball I NEVER SAW MENTION OF A NAME OF ANYONE BEING ATTACKED. GO JUMP IN THE LAKE.
I agree and I voted NO.
The new Newton High has elevators and fru fru bleacher paint jobs. It will be trashed like Alcovy in a year. There is how they spend Splost money vote it down.
Interesting that the board chair has her kids at the theme school she says may could might take over the high school.
the state took ur money then go get it from them. I am tired of paying taxes for the quality of schools we have.
You got me there John! I went to Newton High as you can tell.
