A Cartersville school board member resigns after getting arrested for trying to run over a student over a parking space (a misdemeanor) but here, a member gets caught selling knock-off bags (a felony) and her husband is arrested for trying to run over a reporter (also a felony)- and she's re-elected?

Come on now!

Only because it's just a fair indication of ability, capability, intelligence, etc., do any of the local school board members have a college degree?

Come on now. Don't be trashing our local institution of higher learning!! We got high goals here in TC! If we can get 95% of our students enrolled at the Mountain Ed. Center in Union Co. we could teach the 5% left and possibly break out of the bottom in SAT scores. We might actually get the 5% left to graduate (well, most of them).

We would also then be able to discontinue our horrible athletic programs! Save hundreds of thousands $$ in coaches salaries!

We could set some LOW expectations and actually reach them!!

The Average SAT score to get into UGA this year will be over 1850. The average SAT score to get into GT will be over 1950. The average SAT this year at TCHS is under 1500. The top score is below 1800
The teachers and administration should be ashamed. The only colleges our children can get into are Diploma factory's like Y(you) H (have) C (cash) where the only thing you need is a SAT of 1200 and the cash to pay for a diploma. Then you can use that diploma to wipe your butt with because the only job it will get you is one that wouldn't pay off your student loans in 10 years.
You have administrators who keep lowering the bar. You have teachers who give the test answers out the night before the test so their average grades look like they are really teaching. Isn't that right Coach F.
You have teachers viewing porn on their computers all day (I guess the Superintendent couldn't pray that away) so they let this sicko resign so he can teach somewhere else.( Great Hire in the first place) Hey Clinton, why are you not investigating that. Maybe someone will give you another plaque if you do your job.
Towns County Schools are ranked in the bottom 20% in Georgia which is ranked 48th out of 50 States. Great job School Board. I wish you all a terminal illness.

Well said. The majority of the teachers within all three schools are pathetic. They don't teach, they let the student do whatever they want, and they gossip about the students to others. The learning environment (or lack of) is horrible. The school board should be ashamed, but instead they actually believe they know what is right for these children. How can anyone expect better of these students with the behavior of most of their educators?

Brilliant. Great post. I think a poster corrected you on the rank in Georgia for TC. If you rank against the public schools only then they are in the bottom 20%. If you compare them to all school then they are in the bottom 5%.
It is pitiful that nobody cares. The current School Board and past several are some the most ignorant people I have ever met. I really don't think they understand what they have done to the children of this town. The new clown in the Superintendent's office is cut from the same mould. If a charter school opened I would move my children there in a second. We love the mountains but might be forced to move to let our children have a chance at a better education.
It's all about jobs for the friends and family of the School Board. Most of the teachers attended one of the local colleges and many had to finish on line because they could not pass in the classroom even with the dumb down courses offered at those liberal arts schools. They get a degree and return to suck off the taxpayers of Towns County. Most could not teach if they tried. Then you have all the wives, husbands, sons and daughters working in administration and driving busses that nobody ride in.
I hear there is a storm brewing and a few people are going to be exposed for the frauds they are. I say bring it on. It's long over due. Hellawassee.com is just the tip of the iceberg.

True, but not exactly true! Have you ever been to a school board meeting here where the only parents who show up have children performing "during half-time?"

The ONLY way to improve things throughout Towns County is to take a page from the 60s, but that isn't likely to happen. Parents and young people today have become far to subservient to force change, which is what it's going to take. Instead, they take what is handed to them and grumble about it, constantly.

Instead of solutions, they settle for excuses.

Some of your post may have value...but your calling out everyone and accusing all of the board members and teachers of not having the children's best interest at heart, as well as outright conspiracy, is at best a shotgun approach to a problem you perceive.

However, when you call out our sheriff by name, in a derogatory manner, to investigate an internal administrative issue within a government entity, you should at least have your facts straight. Whether or not it is against their policy, looking at porn on a computer is not, in itself, a crime. Please get all your facts straight, as well as maybe purchase an Official Code of GA (A), before you blast out at everyone in sight for your unhappiness.

The people of this county voted for their board members, and if the result is something you do not like, then perhaps you should run for school board yourself, or even go back to school so that you can get the required specific education to become an administrator, and actually change things to fit your idea of "better".

It is beyond me how these clowns keep getting elected. The above poster is correct, the only way for change to happen is for some good, solid citizens run for board of education and then hope like hades that they get elected. Once elected, they need to bring in a "proven" superintendent and then get out of the way!!

That, my friend, is the only way TC schools will EVER improve!!!!!!

Everything is beyond you, Dumbo. You're a hyperbolic moron.

"for some good, solid citizens run for board"?

Will your writing ever improve?
