I'm so glad to see this. I'm going to be making a few telephone calls tomorrow. I'm going to do Dr. Pullen a huge favor. If anyone else would like to contact the Thomas County board members their telephone numbers may be obtained at this web site. Please, lets all of us show Dr. Pullen how we feel. http://www.thomas.k12.ga.us/Content/Default/6...

My uncle is on the board and he understands the dynamics of Chattooga County. I made sure that he lets all the other Board members know that Chattooga County is full of vicious, impossible to deal with little people. There are powerful state educational people that have had the Chattooga County Schools experience or worked in Trion City Schools and know that working in the Chattooga County School is like sleeping with a rattle snake. All the Thomoas County Board of Education has to do is read mmerville Topix and read, they'll understand the viciousness. Everyone tears down everyone else...Even teachers.

Whatever...in my opinion I feel that the Thomas County board members need to know of Dr. Pullen's attitudes towards blacks and women. And if I find a black woman on their board, buddy, she going to get an earful of my opinion. And his attitudes toward the uneducated poor. And his elitists attitudes. And how he postures in front of the board here and then how he talks about them behind their backs. Also, how in my opinion again, our system has never been in such a state of disarray, and lack of cohesion and direction and loss of a positive attitude because of his seeming attraction to controversy and an inability to admit or address mistakes. Again, whatever… this is my opinion but I fully intend on sharing it with whoever answers the telephone this evening. And I shall make clear that this is only my opinion. It may not accomplish anything other than making me feel better, but then I feel better already. Whoever is our next superintendent turns out to be has got to be an improvement over the idiot we have now. IMHO

Also, they need to know he left our county in a mess money wise. Also, the money he has wasted on court ans lawyers. No school system goes to Due Process unless it's necessary! Money wasted. Oh, and his 15 thousand dollar personal bathroom!

Most school systems are in a money mess, but you are right about Pullen and the Board wasting money on court and lawyers. It's true that Chattooga County is known across the state for acting backward and as being a difficult place to work.
Wasn't John Starr at Thomasville, Georgia prior to coming to Chattooga County. I bet Coach Starr still has contacts there; I think he left that system on a good note and probably will share with them about how he was treated in Chattooga County.

Coach Starr was at josey in Augusta.. Never been in Thomasville. Coach Starr needed to leave Chattooga and he knows that. He got complacent and lost discipline with the kids. That was known by everybody around this region. Could they have handled his firing differently, of course they could and Should Have! But with that being said Dr.Pullen will hopefully have educated people making that decision there. They are smart enough to look beyond heresay and see facts for their ownselves. We are in debt here but every county is losing money. We are paying for academic coaches at schools that make up over 500,000 I heard and supposely the state does not pay for those anymore.. We have central office secretaries in for every employee , and etc... Who knows what really goes on behind the scenes. I'm just glad my wife is working in Walker County now and my kids have graduated. I love Chattooga County but we are known for this type of behavior

I think Dr.Pullen did a good job as superintendent with all the two faced people he had to deal with most of them are teachers that need to shut up and go to work teaching our children not getting on topix all day.

Dr Pullen had a very detrimental effect on this county during his term. He was an elitist who was constantly rude to teachers and principals with whom he came in contact. I was a recipient of that rudeness in front of my class. I was astounded that any professional educator would treat another educator to such a needless display of unprofessionalism. This man did more to destroy than build. He is a perfect example of a little person with a position of power, and that power corrupted him. I'm really glad that he is leaving. There are enough good people in this world who are capable of being civil to others, that we don't need him here.
