I would like to know why the school district is not cutting back at home base? There are assistants, assistants to assistants and too many overpaid upper-administrative individuals.
If the district was really concerned about the educational benefits the students are missing out on in most of the Hall County schools, I think we would see a big change. A $5,000 cut to the top administrative personnel would certainly put enough money back into the school system.
Children and their parents are leaving the districts because the education is at the bottom of the list. Teachers are pushing students to understand material to pass the fall exams. The sad part is teachers don't care who makes the cut or not.
Education in Hall County stinks. Until upper administration is willing to cut back on their pay, everyone is going to suffer, including children who don't want to be bussed to new schools.
