I don’t usually promote anonymous blog comments, but here’s one
received Monday on
Media flap over Lowndes grading
The reporter didn’t call it “new”, Troy Davis did when he sent it to
all the teachers. Maybe you should talk with some teachers who are
deeply against the policy before you start ranting. And to correlate
this with consolidation is ridiculous, you’re just stretching for
Dr. Smith enumerated several other things which he alleged that reporter
misrepresented; see above link.
And Dr. Troy Davis
set the record straight yesterday
in the VDT.
I’d be happy to talk to teachers, pro or con. Send ’em over!
“Stretching for controversy”? Around here you have to duck to avoid controversy.
You know, like the VDT saying it won’t publish any more stories about school
I see the VDT is not ducking this one, though, rather helping stir it up.
In yesterday’s story, the VDT announced mission accomplished:
The new grading policy for grades third through eighth released by the
Lowndes County school system in January has stirred controversy locally
and even nationally.
It wasn’t the grading policy that stirred controversy, it was Scott James, Fox News,
the VDT, the AJC, the SMN, etc.
And that “controversy” will make it easier the next time “unification”
rears its ugly head.
