I am curious what others think of our local schools? I have heard from many that they are a political mess. Qualified teachers are passed up for jobs while some without proper qualificates (who happen to be related to board members)are hired. Our students deserve the best. Please share your thoughts?

Most of the teachers are OK. However, answer this one for me - The Department of Education, the Superintendent, and the board are public funded, have you EVER seen a job opening advertised in any public medium for an opening in ANY of the school systems???

Should teachers be allowed to dip in school? Coach Byrd seems to be ok with them dipping.

just a few things

1 School board positions are elected positions so everyone knows about them when they are open.

2.when the supertendent position was open lots of people applied then it was narrowed to 3 and then we got the one we have now----and he didnt recieve all the votes either.

3. there have been big changes within the school system but the ones you should be worried about is the up comming ones where some of the board want to spend a boat load of money and most of it will do no good (trying to protect kids from a shooter)
there are better and cheaper methods to do it than their proposials but some want to be able to say look we spent all this money and look what we did and then if there is one they will say we tried---protection isnt always measured in dollar amounts.

4 report him if the kids cant do it then he shouldnt be able to either

How about all the money missing coming from the accounting department? People's checks aren't right and their income taxes are being screwed over. Anyone know about that?

@ Just Me - Addressing:
1 - I was talking about teacher's aides, janitors, maintenance, secretarial, custodian, etc. Staff additions. Come to think of it, there has been and will be some coming retirements in the next 10 years. Have you seen any notices for openings for the above?

2 - I don't have a problem with Mr. Grinder. As far as I know he got the position fair and square as well as being qualitied.

3 - No comment...

4 - As far as I'm concerned, Mr Byrd can have the latitude to run his teaching staff however he deems fit. Personally, I don't care if everybody wears Bozo costumes as long as the coming generations get a quality education.

My 'beef' is the closed nature of the departments that are funded publicly with the public having no chance for the jobs. The newbies tend to just 'pop up' in the school systems and court house.

Well... It will come about surely. Mind you though... Mr. Grinder is trying to keep the lid on this one from all angles.

Okay. I left Wayne county school systems and I an now a high schooler in a public school in Davidson county. My school is much harder and we do not get as many snow days. I say Wayne county needs to buckle down and show its students some discipline. That's why nobody can escape waynesboro

That's within the USPS and not county. USPS has been closing Post Offices in several locations, including (I've heard) Lutts. In order to keep those employees a job, some are being given the chance to transfer around to fill in other locations.
