Mathews legacy will forever be embroiled in the Carpenter fiasco and linked to the 70K payoff and the new Alcovy testing scandal not some trumped up spin doctoring of CCRT scores or grad rates or the like. No one has any faith in the scores coming out of a school system that practices selective transparency.
So no other school had any who won these minority awards? Seems like white kids could be eligible too since they are a minority at this particular school. This press coverage is written strangely as in they "may" receive up to this amount?
Sounds to me like someone is very hard to work with.
Please do NOT choose a candidate with an online doctorate. Two of them have online doctorates. Please do NOT choose a candidate who will not move to Newton County and live with us. . Please school board do YOUR homework like you tell the kids to do theirs and contact employees who work under these people and find out what they are like in the REAL world before you vote.
I cannot see them hiring someone unwilling to live in newton if so that is dumb
He already said he supported moving it out to the public vote. I do not view that as a conflict with later being questioned about he verbage and agreeing it misleads us. There is no urgent necessity here. Grow up.
The longer she talks the more I say vote no on this item. Wow the waste is huge.
@Dennistay - you need to contact the attorney general Sam Olens to see if one of his lawyers can give you his ideas on this. If a quorum meets like this and public matters are discussed then I think you may be right but I do not know that Brian Kemp's office handles this - try AG Sam Olens. The school system will tell you until they are blue in the face that they do not break laws but they have had illegal meetings in the last year as we know.
FINALLY someone stands up for Eastside. So tired of the bashing we get here. And yes a million dollars is a lot of money!
This does not have to be decided now. Let's review it on November 2014. The fact that our school board is so arrogant and values tax dollars so little that a 38 Thousand $ special election was chosen tells me all I need yo know. I will be voting NO.
