Why is Loudon County school Board wanting to end public speaking at meetings? Are they afraid of being asked the wrong questions, what are they hiding ? Who's being the bully now.

I heard that the public wasn't allowed to speak about things not on the agenda at Thursday's meeting. No more unruly soccer moms showing up at meetings and calling board members COWARDS over the SRO mess.

Taking the publics right to speak sounds pretty cowardly.

It's really a shame when people who are elected by the public don't want to hear what the public has to say !!!! What was the public thinking? Oh yes new leadership and new views to bad it won't be the public's view that's heard. It's amazing what the believe at election time!!

Could this be another reason why Vance and school board want to shut everyone up especially parents.
This is what was posted on the school website about losing students grades "SKYWARD is up and running, but the info contained there is possibly not correct. We are working hard to get everything restored." Way to go director Vance and school board.
Makes you wonder, how the director leads everyone in prayer and the they pledge to the flag and then shut the public up.

Nothing has been reported in the Newless about the loss of students grades.

Thats why they call it Newsless! Vance also told the teacher mums the word on the lost grades, would't want the parents to know.

At least Pat Hunter isn't keeping quiet about the schoolboad muzzling parents and citizens.

What if parents had been muzzled about the Greenback School gas leaks Phil Moffett, I guess that would have shut your big mouth up, huh?

Maybe thats why Van Shaver retired to the goat farm because he didn't want to tell on his buddies on the school board. I hear this was in the works before the election. They are cowards just like that mom said.

Yeah too much is going on and the school director wants to shut everyone up from speaking. He's got a hot potato in his lap...the loss of student grades after he promoted the Eaton principal, not wanting to tell commission details about the school building program just to name a few. There's no leadership on the school board just followers like dumb Junior Johnson.

You'd think that bump on the log new Greenback school board member Phil Moffett wouuld open his mouth. He complained on more than one occasion about the conditions of the old Greenback School, I guess now that Greenback will get a new school, its ok to muzzle the public. He's just anothe good ol boy just like the rest of um.

Didnt Vance total his truck awhile back? Texting or on his cell I believe was the cause. BAD example for the kiddies Vance. Wonder if taxpayers had to foot the bill on that one?
