Interesting Read

Jonesville, VA

#164 Nov 7, 2011
Don't know how many folks from here read the Kingsport paper, but there was an interesting article about SACS accreditation. After a survey completed ranging from Ivy League schools (Harvard, Yale, etc.) right down to schools like ETSU, many school systems are moving away from SACS due to the unneccesary expense and added work it creates. Seems the universities would rather have State Accreditation instead of the redundancy of a club that anyone who pays their membership fees can join.
I saw that too

Totally agree! State Accreditation and Adequate Yearly Progress are something that we earn through diligence and hard work. SACS is like the country club - you have to pay to play. Anybody can join if they can pay the fee. Article is available in Saturday's Kingsport-Times News. I have also read and heard about other areas doing the very same thing.

Seems to me through SACS Accreditation Lee County is moving backwards instead of forward. They should be more concerned with making sure that all of our schools meet Annual Yearly Progress this year. All of the money spent on SACS could have been better spent to benefit our students and our school personnel.

I just got in from work, but I wanted to say, this is a lot of bickering here. I have just read ads in papers I don't like negative ads and PS I admit you win that one. If you don't provide positive things for me to chose you then I am not. I had KC in school and he always treated me fair and I liked that. KC is my choice because of that and just running a clean race. I don't have children in school but I would like to see this end get our fair share, and I think we will get them with new supervisor who will not hoard the money from school. Just my opinion. Not looking to fuss about it either.
