I hope they hire an "outsider". Enough of the good-ole-boy crap. It burns my ass when I hear about an administrator hiring an in-law or daughter or "church buddy". Now that Gaylon is gone it is not as bad but VV needs a professional manager. I wish we could get Wilbanks from Jonesboro but that won't happen. I had my doubts about her at first but she has done a damn good job and taken JPS to a higher level. No buddy buddy crap just a business person. They need someone that will make the coaches "teach" instead of just going thru the motions because they have too. I have had too many parents make comments about thiere kid having a coach as a teacher and not learning a thing in the class. Coaches are known for doing as little as possible in the classroom. I know Wilbanks and her Principles hold the coaches to a higher level than VV does. I have a friend that is a coach at JPS and was one at VV and he says he didn't have to hardly teach until he went to JPS.

Then move to JHS then, cause we don't need or want Wilbanks!

I can name you several coaches at JPS that teach and it's a joke, several are outstanding too. I think it comes down to the individual, some regular classroom teachers are terrible. As far as Wilbanks you can have her for my money, and it takes a lot of money to pay her.

As long as Lindley is there they will ALWAYS hire church buddies!! If u did a survey most employees that has been hired since he's been there go to Central! I think he needs out! And I know many that agree!

Yeah, there's not good ole boy network in Jonesboro and they only hire outsiders. Get real. All of these local schools are incestuous. If Wilbanks were great and coaches were doing so well teaching Jonesboro wouldn't be in the bottom of achievement in Craighead county. Where did Randy Coleman, Brad Faught, etc, etc go to school? JONESBORO!

Throw out ine demographic and they'd be in top. The kids that take their AP courses are some of the tops in the state, lots of scholarship dollars. But, all schools hire from within, or sure seem to.

Jonesboro's scores are lower because they don't bully out low scoring kids. They also don't stick kids in self contained for the sole purpose of keeping them from effecting their precious apples. Some of us know what's going on in that little government funded private school and it is nothing to be proud of. Jonesboro does their best to teach every kid. I'd put the top 10% of JPS kids up against the top 10% of VV any day of the week.

Maybe VV should send back all the JPS/Nettleton students lying about their addresses and then see how that helps their test scores. The employees know it and overlook it as long as the test scores are good.

Poor Radius ate too much pie. Now he's squared and double the diameter.

Wilbanks wouldn't want to come to VV she already works for the best district around here and she does an excellent job!
