"My fear is being threatened for a lawsuit"???? What a liberal. No spine here huh? Make decisions based on threats of litigation? Who runs things like that?
Why does Eddie claim it is insulting not to want to pick up bad kids then he admits when he drove a bus he left bad kids off the bus? Anyone know the IQ score on this guy? Running a school system? Lawsuit whiners and bus drivers deliver us all.
Thank you Mr. Meadors for pushing the negative types out of our system and recommending Mrs. Fuhrey. Mrs. Fuhrey will do well and we all thank you so much for recognizing her talents and to the other board members Baker and Coggin thank you so much. NCSS is on the right road.
Now we read of the THIRD person to leave the Newton Chamber of Commerce in what - a month or two? Shannon Davis - gone! Roger Harrison - gone! Clara Deemer now retiring after 10 years? Um you all do the math. There is someone no one can work with over there. Running off three employees in two months. Mmmm.
AMEN!!! Baxter is arrogant and annoying as is all of the closed government. I hope to see people who live in the city get rid of some of the longtime waste on the city council in the next election cycle. Then work on the BOC and the BOE next year and in 2016.
I am a former teacher and it is true. Most teachers who find they cannot handle teaching - which is a hard job and not for the faint of heart - they work as hard as they can to get "out of the classroom." They tell me to my face "I had to get out of the classroom." They sit in their offices and work on doctorates online - any wonder why adminstrators end up with more advanced degrees? They leave the building early and come in as they like - some not all to be fair - and they are able to get to classes or meetings or to online cohort group events to get their degrees. This is not to help kids be more successful this is to pad their retirement and stay out of the classroom and hopefully end up even further away from kids at the central office or the bus barn just as long as they don't have to teach. So they sit around and earn degrees and some throw away discipline referrals and make the lives of teachers hard.
THis school board will probably hire a new superintendent who does not even want to or is not willing to even live in Newton County. Where are the published results of the community survey? What did the community have to say about the new super hire? Is this board going to listen to our input or ignore it? Was the survey just for fun? I want to know if they are considering any candidates who refuse to live in Newton County?
We were promised rezoning. Why not? Vote no.
@ontoday. I sense desperation to take focus away from truth. There are some wanting to bust up Eastside. It goes way back. Vote NO to stop it dead. The original November docs state there is an urgent necessity to replace it.
Thank you men for standing up. I was so confused by the language when I voted early so voted no on it. It was too vague.
