DeKalb Schools still looking for a superintendent

DeKalb County School Watch: Still no superintendent –Have you emailed the board?.

Got this from the folks over at the DeKalb School Watch  log.

I have spoken to several board members and they are hearing virtually nothing from citizens about the stalled superintendent search. Our silence is empowering those board members who refuse to move forward to remain entrenched. They received 1000s of emails about redistricting, they need to receive even more about getting a high qualify, proven leader for our school system.

The slow pace and lack of candidates or any news of candidates is telling. I wonder if people are shying away from this job. Can it really be that bad?

    Do you remember that AJC article by that south DeKalb teacher (SWD, I think). It hit the nail on the head and then some. It is even worse than you probably imagine. I feel like south DeKalb is dropping off the edge. A true ghetto beyond the edge that no one cares or even really knows about. Did you hear about the students’ behavior at the Southwest graduation? They clearly have no respect for their leaders.

      I have attended graduations for S DeKalb schools for the past few years, and I can say this; they are appalling. I went to one a few years back at Newbirth. You would think people would show some restraint in a house of worship, but it was not to be. There is a lot of ignorance in South DeKalb and that is the main reason for many the problems that inflict this part of the metro
