Where did you go to school? Did you attend spelling and grammar classes? Maybe you were playing video games, running around the house, and playing on the computer during those scheduled classes.
(Just kidding!....check out your spelling dude! Lol lol!)

Be nice. Hey 35 people came to hear him (course that was including the principal and staff). Gee, maybe it was all staff. Must be why the Greeneville Sun saw a need to give him a forum in the paper. I hear that when SGHS has any kind of fund raiser, he doesn't give one dime. But, the city schools love him. We should probably remember that when he runs for judge again.

Certain folks in the City School System support him -- but not for long. They do what's in their best interest just like the Greeneville Sun. Things can change almost overnight in politics. No way Bailey wins another election.

Attendance is absolutely the most important part of getting an education! If your not there, you can't learn. It's common sense. I do think that the truancy laws go overboard but all we can do is follow them.

I help with SG and it's true. He treats the kids in the county badly. His kids go to city schools. He's just a city slicker. He forgot his roots long ago. I wouldn't vote for him for dog catcher. PLEASE someone run for his office!

They support him because they're supposed to. For now ...

Greeneville is run (politically) like a machine. Same with the State and the U.S. As above, so below. There is discussion and agreement behind the scenes and then an election with ONE candidate that gets support from most everyone. Except it's not Democrat-Republican at the Greeneville level -- it's all Republican. It's more efficient that way. Some will not agree, but you don't get radical people (like the Mayor of Toronto -- a confessed crack smoker AS MAYOR) in office this way.

As for Judge Bailey, it was a huge mistake to promote him to the bench. But many of us now see it and will correct that mistake.

Yeah... let's chastise a man who is trying to provide structure FOR CHILDREN and keep them out of his courtroom later on. Are you upset that he fined you for dipping in school? Please indulge me with a story of a judge being oh so mean. I'm sure you deserved anything handed down to you. And from the looks of it, you didn't learn anything.... tragic.

You are exactly right. When they leave school and start working for a living, do these people think they will be allowed to miss work? I personally think he is a fair judge. I'm sure he gets tired of seeing the same faces over and over.

Yep, it seems to me he is trying to target the root of the problem. The sad part is that only 35 people were there to hear it.
