Not sure that was very appropriate to call someone a joke, given all that she has achieved. She has worked in Wake Co. and in school systems that are very demanding and if my memory serves has a much better record than our district. If she has the experience that proves successful why would we not welcome that after what has been going on here. As far as bussing, kids should not be bussed any further than necessary. To say that the kids next to Williston cannot go there, because the school doesnt cut it, but then you swap them with the kids in the Myrtle Grove district....come on, for any reason that should not happen. The education should take presidence all day long over politics. Segregation is not something caused by bus routes in my opinion. I think the county should adopt or offer more year round school schedules, where children benefit from the momentum of learning and have seasonal breaks rather than one long break. Could really improve grades, our numbers, morale, etc..that is a proven fact. This county cannot offer anything beyond year round elementary (which one of those principals was just named no. 1 in NC), we are too far behind in some areas. We need someone with strong credentials and someone who knows what works. Everyone needs to research so that we have knowledge, ulitmately the board picks, and hopefully that goes better than some other matters for this county.
