This is utterly ridiculous! Mr. Wilson has provided several employment and scholasitc opportunities to teachers, parents, and students. He is truly an asset to the school system, and the board members who so eagerly wanted him out have only served a year! Wow! And what educational background does any of them have? None? Mr. Wilson came into the school system as Director of Schools with the majority of the schools on the list or targeted. Now, for the last 3 years, every school in the district has made AYP! But I guess when personal vindettas are the objective, rather than the remarkable change he has brought about, then this is the end result! Such a shame! Such a shame that a man's fate lies in the hands of nine people! And I'm just going to put it out there...it amazes me how all the whites (the majority) voted na, and the blacks voted ya...food for thought! Undercover segregation and discrimination!
Always back to race

Can any article on this online paper ever bring forth any meaningful dialog other than race? How can you possibly bring race into this? It is that same mindset that helped keep the corrupt former Memphis mayor in office so long - Protect Willie and he'll watch out for his cronies. When anyone tries to clean up corruption or eliminate the bad eggs, it's because of race? Was it a racial plot against Tiger Woods too by "the man" to bring him down? Are all the reports against the COGIC child molesters a plot by the KKK? If you continue to spew lies and hatred, you will reap the harvest of racial divide. You cannot allow people to under perform in positions they are not qualified to hold.

As far as qualifications to hold the position of the board member, doesn't the public decide that in the election? Couldn't the same be said about the American citizens who elected a president without qualifications? People are tired of the same old excuses and corruption. They elect people with a new platform to move away from that corruption.

I have no idea if what was reported against this man is true or not but I certainly believe the board has access to ten times the confidential information as the general public - that is their role. If you have a problem with the board, work to replace them. Everything else is just smoke and mirrors. Raise your expectations!

Has anyone been to the schools to see how they operate? I have. Everytime I have been there it has been nothing but total crazy. Students running around everywhere. No control whatsoever! I even have a video that a student took of a fight outside of the school on the property and nothing was done about it. The school security couldn't even stop it. Something has to be done. Maybe it has now!!!!!

Who the hell gave David Barnes the right to make that kind of decision. Let me shine some light on David Barnes for a moment. David Barnes has had many DUI's in different states. Once he tried to pick up his daughter at the movies, drunk! He has had so many dui's, he can't legally drive. So if anyone see's david driving, call the police. One more thing, he is also a heartless s.o.b. He gave his ex-wife so much grief. He tortured her to the point where she actually killed herself. He enjoyed hurting her and using the kids to do so.
David, if you are reading this, I'm on to you boy. You have alot of enemies because you are a bastard. I hope the spirit of Victoria haunts you everyday of your worthless life. I want to see you gone from Fayette Co. Schools. Eventually, your day will come. Also, i am going to notify the somerville police department of your many dui's. I have faith that you will do some jail time, soon. I got a feeling that you are a pervert. What is a heartless bastard like you doing around children? After all, you played a large part in Victoria's suicide. Her children are now without their mother. How can you have any concerns about children when you did such a thing? Parents, you know what i'm talking about. Him and his stuck up wife. I was a parent at FCS for about 3 to 4 years. I was not empressed by him nor his wife. They are both drunks.

David Barnes had some say so about another's fate? I was also a FCS parent and spoke to David in the past. At first, i thought he was a decent guy, but after he made racist statements about the "little monkeys with no daddy's", i knew he had no business at the school that is mostly black. David Barnes IS a self-centered, arrogant, racist, drunkass with no morals. I have some more dirt on him that i will share tomorrow. Check back to this forum tomorrow afternoon.

Mr. Wilson was a good man most of the time. But he had his issues, too. For example, i alerted mr. wilson that there was a pervert working for FCS. He did not fire him! When i was a student at Oakland School, there was a sub that would ask me if i could spend the night at his house. He also asked me what my penis looked like. He wanted me to tell him who had the biggest penis is the boys bathroom. I was like, 10 years old when this went on. 20 years later, i see this sub and heard his voice and i knew he was the same perv. I told Mr. Wilson about my own personal experiences with this man, and yet he is STILL there. For that alone, Mr. wilson should have been fired. black or white. And yes, why is it when a black man is fired, it has to be a racist thing. Well in this case, this "black" man failed to protect your "black" child from a "black" perverted teacher.

Apparently you are a product of fayette county schools. You should be ashamed that you cant even write a complete sentence. Not to mention that you can't spell. So if you ever wonder why you can't get a job, it's not because you are black.

Ok Bonnie, if your children are attending Fayette Co. Schools, and you live in Humbolt, that is one of the issues in Fayette County. We are paying to educate your children when they should be attending their own county schools. This is another reason the Board took the action they did, we have many students either living close to Fayette Co. line, or far away like your family, bringing your children to our system. We never get funded for educating students that do not live in Fayette County. This law is never enforced in Fayette County we educate anyone who comes through the door. There is much more corruption in Fayette County Schools Board Office, I think they have just scraped the tip of the iceberg..........

Wilson was a good man but don't make it a racial thing. Don't teach your children to hate color. After all, do you know what color our Lord is? If you hate a person because of the color of their skin, you don't know or truly love the Lord. And on Judgment Day, you will be asked,"Did you not love my child because he was a different color than yourself", What will your answer be? He made us all. Wouldn't it be a boring world if everyone were the same color. Stop the racism now! Maybe this would be a great example to set for your child. Don't blame everything that happens on the white man if your black, and don't blame everything on the black man, if your white. Make it a better world instead of holding on to things that happened years ago and none of us living now had anuthing to do with. And CORR goup is nothing but a "BLACK KKK". I would be ashamed if I were a black man and had them trying to defend me, just like I'd be ashamed if the "KKK" came to town to defend me if I were fired by a small group of black men. The important thing is our childrens education, how can anyone get an education because they are taught to hate everyone that's a different color. Let it go, stop the racism now,

"...we had reached a point where really there was no other option."

And yet, four board members voted to keep him.
