Our fearless leader has made another intelligent move. Apparently the lady hired to replace Mrs. Suzanne Keefe just had her license suspended in the State of Mississippi for altering test scores. Well I guess that is one way to improve our test scores. Don't take my word for it, read it for yourself at the website below. What else can be done to give our school system and county a black eye? I guess our school board was asleep when this hire was made as well. Great job school board members!!

please call your board representative and let them know about this. The board does not have anything to do with the hiring and firing all they do is hire the director. It is time to take a stand and let them know. The next board meeting is on Monday the 5th of August. Please, Please let your voice be heard!!!!!!!

Please call your board member and tell them you are tired of this bull! We have a director of schools who can not be trusted. He has run 24 teachers out of this county. He has put people in administration positions that are not from here therefore not invested in our kids or community! The board needs to fire him!! He doesnt know enough about Education or curriculm to be in the position he is in. The community has to stand up. Enough is enough. Board meeting is Monday night. Be there or contact a board member to voice your concern!
whatever

Let's look at what the article actually says, shall we?

"Andrus-Johnson ... said after a two-day hearing before an education department sub committee the charge of telling teachers to alter test scores was not proven. But she still had her license suspended for a year."

OK, so it wasn't PROVEN that she altered test scores -- but it also wasn't PROVEN that she didn't.

But what WAS proven was that the woman "was cited for not having an adequate security plan for the tests in question, not knowing where all the keys are stored for the closet where they are kept and for not having adequate training for teachers regarding testing."

So regardless of whether she altered test scores or not, there are some MAJOR red flags when you're hiring someone to be a supervisor of curriculum and instruction.

The race issue would be irrelevant, other than the fact that Robinson overlooked several qualified white candidates that didn't have their teaching license suspended to hire a minority candidate that did.

Andrus-Johnson's license was suspended for one year TRUE
Just close both schools in lake county and send all the kids to Dyer or Obion and that would stop the racist bull sh**t he is doing.

It seems to me that every post that is against this woman is a detriment to her character and not her ability. I have yet to see anything that says she is not qualified to assume this position. It is apparent that your entire county is full of BIGOTS refusing to accept change!!!! Stop hiding behind post and computer hoods/sheets and get a life....Oh I'm sorry, you probably don't have one since all you do is post bull- ish and call it news!! DAMN GET OVER IT. Try going beyond the river and see how people really live.

If she isn't trusted enough to keep her job in Mississippi, why would Tennessee want her? Where there's smoke there's fire! The powers that be won't be happy until the whole school system is ruined. Next thing will be that the state will cancel the school accreditation. That means big trouble for seniors wanting to go on to college. Not to mention being a lousy thing to do to all the students!

No one cares what color the woman is. Seriously. We care that she had her license suspended in another state yet was hired to be a supervisor in Lake County. If a white person with the exact same credentials were hired, I think we would all be questioning the superintendent on that too.

And since we're going to type in all caps about 400 years of struggle and inequality, OUR PROBLEMS WITH THE SUPERINTENDENT ARE NOT BECAUSE HE IS BLACK. The problem is because he, in cahoots with Hamilton and Bargery, has run off or attempted to run off more than two dozen teachers and administrators that didn't deserve it. And to replace them, he has brought in his buddies and cronies, some (most?) of whom have very questionable backgrounds and credentials.

If this sort of thing were happening in a larger city with a newspaper/TV station that truly had editorial independence and could publish the truth without fear of losing advertising, all this stuff would be front-page news. But Evan has to walk on eggshells to avoid pissing off the wrong people if the Banner is to stay in business, and everyone knows it.

Maybe someone could call the State Gazette or the UC Messenger, they both circulate in LC. And they both love publishing all the dirt from LC. The person that called WBBJ - call WPSD and KFVS-12 while you're at it. The superintendent, his administrative hires and the poison on the school board need to be exposed for what they are.
