The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools is an organization of educators, run by educators for the benefit of educators. Glynn County had a horrible superintendent of schools and the School board tried to reign him in and he called in the SACS, who threatened our accreditation, which jeopardizes scholarship awards, and graduation recognition. They held Glynn County hostage and we ended up buying out the supers contract to get rid of him. Education is the teaching of students. We spend over half of our budgets doing things other than teaching students. Did you know that if you took the top 5% of the students in China (geniuses)only, they would outnumber the entire K-12 student population in the USA. We are too concerned with social issues and not concerned enough about identifying the students who will help our nation compete in the future. All of the social issues in the world are not going to provide a standard of living for our nation. And incidentally, there are more genius level students in India than there are in China.
I personally vote for getting everyone out of our school systems (federal, state, and local governments, as well as SACS) and making public education a privilege available to all who want to learn. We don't have the time or money to cure social problems. I pray there are enough students in the private schools to pull us through the next century. God help us all!
