close Ombudsman close Charter Challenge close theme school - send them all where they are zoned and let the base school handle them. When they deserve to get kicked out kick them out otherwise handle it on your own you all are making more money than anyone in the county. Look at the Newton median income - far below any educator's pay so shut down these frilly buildings and handle them in your building like when i was in school. THese centers and alternative sites are there because we have administrations too weak to do the right and hard work. Instead of toughen up and sending them home they just park them in these places on our dime.

If you think that Eastside is all white you have lost your mind. It is now a Title One school. Why is it so successful and why are these men standing up for the fuzzy language that includes it? Because the leadership at that school works like dogs to keep student achievement at the top. Stop race baiting and pay attention to the SPLOST language it does say "urgent need" following a "canvas" - who the hell canvassed that and dreamed that up?

So the taxpayers have passed the last three SPLOSTS and each year student test scores have gone south down - they are bad scores.

So I recommend voting no this time so maybe the scores will go up?

Just a logical idea if you think on it. NCSS has not put out a single piece of information to convince me to vote yes on this. Grad rates are below the state and nation. HOPE percentages of our grads are low as they can get Alcovy is like under 40%. Low test scores in 9 - 12. Math eoct scores in grade 9 are low. School crime is so high that it has it's own weekly section running.

David Hudson is BRILLIANT. More brains than the school board and their Ph.D. runaway super all together. He quashed Lindsey and LaQuanda like batting a little fly. If Hudson says they are in the wrong they are. This board is arrogant and does not want to answer to the taxpayers who put them in office. I agree get the State Ethics Commission on them all.

I typically disagree with lawsuits but LaQuanda Brown Carpenter and her frivolous suit make me feel the same way-every family with a hurt child should go after the system's insurance policy and file suit so let the lawyers chase I say. If Carpenter can embroil the system in lawsuits and drop it when Jeff Foster comes digging then let those with a real lawsuit go after the system.

Big mistake to have a married couple in this situation especially the way this one was handled whoa! I keep hearing about the involvement in this case of the covington news and a reporter there. Can the Citizen paper put out an editorial on this? Inquiring minds want to know.
