I heard that Tom Shelton wants to all teachers to join the local teachers union. How is that going to help our schools. Just look at the mess in Chicago... Since Tom came things seem to be going downhill quick. Any thoughts?

I'm tired of Fayette County public schools. What are the best private schools in Lexington.

I left Lexington because I got tired of the lies from the main district office. Every time I called to complain about a problem they just covered it up like the always do!

I have made various complaints and I always copy him on the complaint so that he knows what is going on. Every time, I have been blown off, with the "thats the way it is" crap. I am here to say this man, along with the majority of the administration through out the city are a bunch of gutless turds. This man will not even defend their position, whether it is right or wrong.

We went from one dipshit to another dipshit.

Want to see what can be done about it? I would stand right next to you and others if they were so inclined to petition to have his ass removed. Lets take charge of the situation and show these commie bastards who is really in charge. Let us remove him, and us parents choose his replacement. Instead of Occupy Wallstreet, let us Occupy FCPS.

That is a fabulous idea! However, it's harder to get things "done" in FCPS than people realize. I have removed all 3 of my kids and put them in private school for this very reason! I simply called to ask a question, got the run around, never got a response and suddenly it's my fault???
Stu at least tried. I don't know how an accountant can end up a Super without being a teacher at all!!!

Agenda 21. Plain and simple.

If people understood this idea more than they do they would realize what Agenda 21 really is. Ever hear those stories where some schools have started teaching kids that 2+2=5? Well, there is a reason behind it, it is Agenda 21. Basically, in this situation things are not based off of proven facts and science, they are based off of a consensus of what people think the answer should be.

This is how he also got this job. Scmoozing and kissing ass, telling people exactly what they want to hear. Him having this position should be a slap in the peoples face. As you suggested he is not a teacher, and that only leaves one other possibility, a god damned bureaucrat.

I just checked online and Tom Shelton was never a teacher or a principle before be came to Lexington. Seems weird they hired someone who never worked in a school to run the school system.

Two posters talking to themselves. If your freaking kids behaved and participated they would not be getting into trouble at school. Your kids should probably be on the short bus anyway.

Just saw a big fat lie on the Herald misleader. They said Tom Shelton brought Japanese, Chinese and Spanish to all schools in grades k to 5. They don't teach any if those at my child's school, so I'm guessing it's more stretching of the truth to get publicity!

Write the newspaper and inform them of this and ask them to make a correction so that people are well informed. At least put them in a position to understand that they are printing inaccurate information. One way or another, someone needs to be called out.
Yeah right

I have a 11 year old daughter with autism and epilepsy and I took her out of FCPS because they DO NOT teach these special needs kids! They are verbally and physically abused by the teachers and nothing gets done! I have sent a letter to FRANKFORT DEPT. OF EDUCATION for EXCEPTIONAL CHILD SERVICES and a letter to CIVIL RIGHTS in WASHINGTON D.C. I am ready to OCCUPY FCPS!! The HELL that my family has been put through by FCPS is crazy!! If anyone wants to start a petition to remove TOM SHELTON let me KNOW!! I will be the FIRST to sign!! They need to be investigated by the STATE DEPARTMENT and the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT and the CIVIL RIGHTS DEPARTMENT! FCPS believes they are untouchable! They believe they can get away with whatever they want! Well, I am one mother they isn't going to go away!

First off a child with autism and epilepsy should not be in a regular classroom. It is not good for anyone involved.
