Education is no different from other entities. You have to pay for solid, well-prepared leadership. It does not come free. And why should it? If you read a Harvard or Stanford study of acceptable exec salary ratio to all other's employed, you will find GC to be well within accepatable guidelines. But I get the feeling that some of those who blog do not understand that. Nor do they care. They just gripe. They want to have their children in one of the nation's best school districts but don't want to pay for it. They want good, solid teachers but don't want a career path. Good luck with that. Educators are expected to not aspire.
I appreciate Larry Major's knowledgeable answer. Thanks
Radloff was opened in the old Gwinnett Daily Post building and Phoenix HS was the old Rose's shopping center in Lawrenceville. Others may not have been economically feasible. Don't know...There is one school being made of a repurposed building on Old Norcross...a middle school.
I totally agree with repurposing existing properties across GC. Kudos to the BOE for doing that i.e. Phoenix HS, Radloff Middle, and the forwarding thinking properties that are currently being redone and will house schools in the next two years. The BOE helps the blighted areas (Old Norcross Rd for ex.) of our county by using the properties judiciously.
Crooks? Evidence. Be care...you'll end up like that Anderson guy who blamed, blamed, blamed until someone said "Enough!" Now he's paying for all the baseless accusations. It'll catch up with you.
Our kids have to be educated. Sorry guys. Move to another county if you think they have it better. Real estate is selling. Don't eat a Big Mac once a month. Or maybe that is don't buy a couple of packs of cigs... or lay off a couple of those house beers at Wild Wings.
We're lucky to have gone 8 years without a millage increase.
I agree with you 100%. Where is the evidence they are "trigger happy"? Time for all the nay sayers in these blogs to substantiate their claims.
I am behind our police and think they have a job that few of us is capable of doing really well. They are essential in our world...more than ever. Just a thought here: maybe having fewer patrol cars on Ronald Reagan EVERY day giving out "bearly" speeding tickets, they could do something about the meth labs and thugs that threaten our county. Just a thought....Only those who travel RR regularly know what I am talking about. Between the Duluth police and the GC police on RR, the revenues must be waaaayyyy up. I guess taking people to court and imprisoning them must be really, really costly.
Perhaps Kautz could pay for all that December mess since she created it. I think the law firm deserves each dime. Anyone who gets in that Snellville mess deserves huge payment.
Agree with Haughton about Peterson and Wild Wings and their customers who have supported this appreciation and response to a need. There is good here.
And that would be a whole lot cheaper than this project...and who knows?? They might even catch a thug or two.
Good grief. Lets see where else we can spend unnecessary money.
