SUWANEE -- The Gwinnett County Board of Education on Thursday voted to approve new principals at three local schools.

The board approved Ruth Westbrooks as the new principal at Puckett's Mill Elementary, Clifton Alexander will lead Simonton Elementary and Michele Smith will transition to the leadership position at Suwanee Elementary.

Westbrooks has served as assistant principal at Partee Elementary since 2008. She becomes the new leader at Puckett's Mill Elementary in the Mill Creek Cluster as Principal Michelle Farmer transfers to the Division of Human Resources as director of leadership development.

Alexander has served as assistant principal at Meadowcreek Elementary since 2009. He replaces Principal Chandra Young, who is transitioning to her new post as director of leadership development in the Division of Human Resources.

Smith has served as assistant principal at Jenkins Elementary since 2010. She will replace Kimberly Smith, who was named as the district's director of health and social services in the Division of School Leadership and Operations.

Interesting pattern that seems to be the rule rather than the exception.

There is a saying in the school system: "Ineffictive administrators never die, they just go to ISC." Sometimes they are recycled and get a second chance at leadership. But since the only criteria for administrators is a degree and not experience, this is what happens.

Here is a suggestion. Ineffictive administrators should be returned to the classroom and not padded central office jobs. But alas, many administrators fled the classroom because they weren't effective teachers and communicators. many, not ALL i said.

your tax dollars at work ladies and gentlemen!
