It is very hard to take a stand in a school system that is ran so crooked,but it is time parents take a stand and ask for the city to look into our board members. Dr. Burrell is one of the most crooked people I have ever ran into. He is someone who does not do what's best for the schools and only does what keeps him in control. If you are not giving him some on the side as favor to keep your position or getting drunk with him and not allowing him to pressure you to do things you know is not right and illegal, then you will never work for Anderson Co. Schools or shortly loose your position if you have one. I think the city needs to look real closely at who heads up our board. Maybe ask for phone records and see what kind of drunk pictures he sends with womens hats and clothes on!!! Find out who else is at these parties like teachers he has hired. Is that really someone we want making decisions for our kids. I really do not like this forum but I have tried speaking my voice other ways and I found myself in positions with people that would not talk in fear of this man and what he would do to them. They fear maybe loosing their jobs as well. This is a man other board members are scared of. Isn't it about time he come off board? He has made his time with Anderson Co long enough. There should be a term and once served move on. He doesn't even live in Anderson Co. but we allow him to do these types of things and run our board. Maybe because people are scared to talk and fear what would happen to them. I am sure some parents are unaware of these things or maybe not. I want to get it out there and help oust him from Anderson Co. Board of Education!! We need to talk and talk loud. Maybe write the Knoxville News Papers and call the news. Maybe all these under the table and dirty things he is doing will finally get him out and we will actually get some great leaders for our kids. I think there are some more on the board that are dirty maybe not as bad and I do not know their stories but we need as a town to speak LOUD!!! This will allow Larry Foster to actually hire who's best for our schools instead of him fearing this cruel man!!!! or maybe Larry needs to go too!!!! They are doing things that are wrong together and the schools will soon reap what they are sewing!!! Please write your comments and help me fight out Dr. Burrell.

No one will say anything because when u do u are made to shut up. I have had a problem with our school system but no one cares. No one answers their phone calls no one is even allowed to speak at board meetings unless they want to hear u which they don't. The Anderson county school system sucks ! And there is nothing we can do about it. I've tried. I can't wait till my kids get outta anderson county schools if I could afford to move id be gone. Everyone here wants to sweep everything under the rug. Back each other up when thy KNOW someone did wrong and everyone fully admits it. they don't care about our kids and they show it everyday. But u can only go up the chain of command so far then ur done. I've caled don dare I've calld the newspapers both Clinton and knoxville I've done everything a parent can do. It's so easy for people to say move ur child or do something about it well Ido t feel my kids should have to move and leave their friends i think the problems should be fixed. And if I knew how to do something about it believe me I would !

maybe take a deep breath and relax.

without some evidence of wrongdoing, screaming that he is doing wrong is a pretty weak accusation.

has he committed crimes? has he covered up a crime?

or do you just not like the answer he gave you at some point for some petty problem? did your kid get in trouble and now you are trying to smear a man's name?

your whining is pretty sad. have you gone to a board meeting and expressed your views? I must warn you that they will probably ask specific questions. Saying he is crooked will probably not be good enough for them.

or you could run for school board and put your input in that way.

you can put your kids in another school. Im sorry you can't easily afford it, but it is an option. Im sure there are ways you can pay for it if you were serious about it. Vote for officials that will support school vouchers and then you will have more freedom with your childs education.

or you can get on the internet and complain about it.

Larry needs to go too. He is just a crooked. He professes to be a big man in his church, but a good christian doesn't do the things he does.

Christi,
You are on every board whining about how no one will listen to your complaints/problems with the school system. Face it, your kids are juvenile delinquents. The School System knows it.

Its not that I am defending these people if they are doing something wrong. I just have a problem with people who get on here strictly to bash someone or talk crap about them. If they are truly doing something wrong then go through the proper channels to having the problem resolved. But there is no point in people being cowards and not posting there name to anything just to try to make somebody else look bad.

You never post your name either when you bash us cowards, you hypocrit! And many of these people do try to go through a chain of command in hopes of resolving some of the issues in our schools,but it doesn't always work. I like how you always pretend to have everyones intentions already figured out.

it's all about the 'good ol boys/girls club' between the board, directors and any other employee who is willing to kiss butt to get what they want. I know what they have done in the past to employees, things they should have been sued for but the people feared retribution. Bad references etc...

You seem very misinformed. Dr. Burrell DOES live in Anderson County. Your misinformation and baseless accusations...i.e he doesn't live in AC Is a testament to how credible you are. May I ask what you know about the parties he attends, and his drinking habits? You seemed unhealitily obsessed.

dr,burrel and mrs voscamp both know that tammy bacon who is guidance counslor is not qualified by no means of any sort.she is a lush and has 2 ask mr.houck everything about her job.at the learn center they need a qualified therapist social worker more than any school in the county,the teachers are fed up with this situation,a teacher was fired because she was trying to bring this to attention to central office.ms bacon gets all the extra hours she can by driving one or two students,while other drivers have 6-10 students.com ing to a new school building that we as tax-payers have paid for should demand the most qualified staff work at the new school.if the scool board really cares about these students as they proclaim,then they should provide them with the best social services and therapist they can get.fed up with dr.burrel and mrs.voscamp and scool board for turning a blind eye to the most neediest kids in our school system.

Hello....
Do you honestly think central office is unaware of their employees credentials? Everyone in an administrative position knows who is qualified and who isn't. The SAD thing is no matter what county or school system, it is who you know! I know this from first hand experience. If you have spare time on your hands, you can look up teacher license and endorsement areas at https://www.k-12.state.tn.us/tcertinf/ .
Just click search and type in the teacher's name.
Happy hunting!
