When one makes a post on a public forum, especially one on the subject of education, one should check the presentation of it. There are nine glaring grammatical errors in the original post, and that alone discounts the opinion stated on this subject.

The Bladen County Board of Education has taken a huge step forward with this action. The only thing they should have done differently was to have made this decision long before now. This type of action would not have been taken lightly by the Board of Education, and Mr. Killingsworth is blessed that he was allowed to retire. Before all is said and done, I sincerely hope that his actions, along with those of others who may have helped him in his ill-conceived personal agenda, will be brought to public light, for then there will be no speculation or condemnation for our board. Too, it is worth noting that the entire Board of Education voted unanimously for this action; it was not a person – or persons – with a political agenda. The Board of Education acted as concerned citizens of Bladen County who have been elected to look out for the good of the students as well as the taxpayers of the county.

We all look toward the future with the hope and expectation that integrity will be one of the essential requirements of the next superintendent of the Bladen County school system.
