@ Haughton Failing to agree with you does not imply failing to read your post.
It was read.
I disagree. The End.
The cost and man-power it would take to investigate all 165,000 students would be ridiculous.
I'm not saying that it is by any means right to commit residency fraud... and I know it does weigh on our system.. but the alternative isn't much better of a solution. This is something that would have to be continuously done each year.
If we have that kind of money in GCPS.. then I would much rather that teachers FINALLY get raises.
I know in South Gwinnett as well there is a large number of people living with extended family and friends and do not actually own or rent their own space. This makes proving residency tricky.. but they still must fill out a residency affidavit which is signed by both parties.. and is then notarized. There is a process to try to handle this issue..
And I am saying all these things being a GCPS teacher MYSELF.
I am SO happy to read this! Both Hopkins and Nesbit have an enrollment of over 1,900 children at each! Nesbit had to resort to getting trailers for kids this year. It's sad watching the kids walk through mud puddles on rainy days just to get to the restrooms.
THANK YOU GCPS. We've really needed this!
Elementary schools in South Gwinnett county have been long neglected. Look at their enrollment numbers versus those in Northern Gwinnett!
Gwinnett county is working towards having a school system where regardless of where you live in the county.. you still get a great education. That sounds worth it to me.
Sorry if those poorly contributing kindergarteners bother you so much.
Every Georgian not being admitted to college is a good thing. It keeps our state colleges competitive. If another individual is more qualified - illegal or not - it is my opinion that they deserve that spot.
Can't get into college? Get better grades. Stop expecting life to be handed to you.
