Roger Wagner Is a Saint compared To what has been the Superintendent of pike county schools. It's not been to many years back that If you wanted a Job with the School Board the first question you were asked was who Is your family. how many votes are In your family. they didn't care who knew It. or who heard them. let's be honest. If you were the superintendent and two people applied for the same job. both are qualified. you going to hire someone you know or family or someone you don't know? my self I will hire the person I know or my own family. most that are honest about this thing will do the same. Besides this we the tax payers are going to pay his salary as long as he lives. If he Is superintendent or playing golf. we. the tax payers are already paying three superintendence. why pay another one that will be as bad or most likely worse. three Is my count I might be wrong.

if you have ever tried to get a job in ky that has to go through site based then you know what a joke it really is. site baseat each school consists of the principal 3 teachers and 2 parents. if these people don't like you or family then you will NEVER get a teaching job or any other kind of job that has to go through these people. i think that site base should be done away with .it just puts politics at a more personal and local level. good teachers are not hired or transferred because of these people. if you have never worked in the school system then you really can't understand what's it like. is it fair that some teacher don't even have to do student teaching under another teacher they are given their own classroom because 1.they are friends with the principal at elem .school.2.their husband is principal at the elem.schools' high school 3.site based approved it. 4. roger wagner approved it.5.the state dept. needs to take over pike county schools

When you have a job that pays over $110,000 a year, are put in charge educating our children, and oversee the hiring of hundreds of people, YOU CANNOT be as corrupt as Mr. Wagner. This isn't opinion, since apparently he was investigated and found guilty. But as another poster stated, it starts with electing board members. Thacker and McGuire come to mind. If they are really concerned with kids, they would get rid of Wagner (which isn't going to happen) but they should. The pubic will get rid of them instead. I guess they need to decide which option means the most.

The Pike County School system needs SOMEONE NEW to be in control. When I say someone new, I mean someone without one of the same old names that have always been in control like you mentioned in James Dotson. At what point do people say, "enough is enough"? Wagner, Kilgore, Johnson, and Thompson need to all go get boxes from Velocity Market, pack up their stuff and leave. It would probably take ten police officers to drag Kilgore out.

Excuse me not ever schools S.B.D.M.operates as you implied,in closing these principles and ass.principles operate theses schools,I agree it needs cleaned up starting at the schools,kids chewing tobacco on buses,in classrooms,etc.now tell who is a fault letting stuff like this go on "SORRY ASS" principles,and there"s no way the B.O.E.can monitor daily operation but it is nothing new like one poster said just another adminstration.
