Terrible leadership. They should be helping us fight this schoolboard instead of running. No leadership

Ringgold school board cant even put a one car parade together. The saddest school board around. How about electing "real" professionals next time.

Come to Armstrong School District. The geniuses on that board want to have only one high school in 436 square miles! In the wealthy area of the district of course. They can have their quad a dream school near them and bus the rural kids 30 miles one way on country roads.

The previous board had an affordable plan to renovate and keep three high schools in their communities. That didn't sit well with the wealthy of Armstrong do they got corrupt Sen Don White and Rep Jeff Pyle to interfere in both school board elections and get idiot Sec of Ed Tomalis to stop renovations. Armstrong taxpayers are now stuck with an 8 million bill for nothing due to non refundable fees from stopped renovation projects and a new board shoving their new high school upon everyone.

These board members are doing exactly what they said they would do when they ran for seats on the board. So you want to cry because they are keeping their promises? Should have urged more people who felt like you to go vote. That's how it's done.
