Work Session, Valdosta Board of Education (VBOE),
Valdosta, Lowndes County, Georgia, 29 August 2011.
Videos by John S. Quarterman for LAKE, the Lowndes Area Knowledge Exchange.
The playlist also includes other video material, such as the 6PM convening just to adjourn to executive session, the SRO crowd waiting 20 minutes before 7PM, hiring of four new teachers, board member training, parts 1, 2, and 3.
Material already posted includes the board deciding to put off any planning for a new elementary school because of the consolidation referendum, then finally their statement against school consolidation and their vote for it (except for Jeana Beeland).
Well, finally except for the many citizens who stood up and said something at the end, listed here in chronological order:
John S. Quarterman:
Consolidation won’t improve education so I see no need for it ever
The most damaging useless thing
Hamilton Co. TN is high priority school district
Yield my 5 minutes to Sam Allen of FVCS
Sam Allen, president of FVCS:
Why can’t Winnersville have two great school systems?
George Boston Rhynes:
I have seen cameras here at this building when it concerns football
Somebody tell me his name:
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it
First thing they’ll do, is sell that stadium
Congratulations to those who did attend.
Citizens actively participating in local government. Enjoy.
