I want someone to ask Johnson and Turner why they opposed. Why can't anyone ask the tough questions? I want to hear it straight from them why they opposed her selection. This county will be better off when those two are gone.
Good luck getting employees to tell the truth. They'll likely get sued.
Resigned...forced out....tomato, tomatuh....And looks like Mathews is "retiring" just in time too! What a mess.
$4 million for a camera system that is supposed to improve student behavior? Garbage. How about getting some of those overpaid administrators actually doing their jobs in an effort to help teachers control some of these behaviors? When teachers try to punish kids for poor behavior and they get a slap on the wrist and are sent back to class then you have a problem. So much money is wasted on cushy salaries at the higher levels. We shouldn't have to rely on $4 million in cameras to keep kids in line.
The picture would be made more clear if we had data on how many Newton County students complete 4 years of college. I have seen the data and the numbers are not good. Bottom line is, anyone can pay the fee and take the test. But are these kids really college ready? GA may lead the nation in students enrolling in AP classes and taking the tests but are they succeeding later and finishing college?
Keep it classy, Alcovy.
Weren't we all assured by their FORMER fearless leader that there were no gangs at AHS?
They'll pull out all the stops, appealing to peoples' fears about school safety in order to try to get this thing passed. If they didn't waste so much money and screw almost everything up we wouldn't need to do all of this.
Notice how Johnson and Turner completely bypassed Meadors, even though he has served the BOE well as vice chair. Hmmm...
Wow Eddie. How long did it take you to come up with that?
That's interesting because I know at least 8 people who have done just that and guess what? They only got a response from one BOE member. I'll let you guess who that BOE member is. No one is trying to "stir up controversy." People are trying to avoid it by exposing the truth and the truth is there is corruption in the system. Thankfully it is being weeded up but it won't be until June.
