  1. Some of you may have missed Laurie Cook’s remarks in this article. She said less than 5% of Richmond County students read at grade level. Wow! That’s a stunner. What are we paying for as taxpayers? What a waste of money. Who should be held accountable for this fiasco? Why do we just roll over and keep paying for this failure? The damage to our city is incalculable. We sure need to do something different. Maybe we should fire the BOE and privatize the whole system ie charter schools. Wake up folks!

  2. The HUB is indeed a wonderful project and will hopefully help lift those up in reading skills. I too am distressed that taxpayers pay so much into the school system. We should be given an explanation of why our schools are doing so poorly: as said in article above= “This is a community effort in zip codes 30901 and 30904 that are two of the most severely distressed in the state of Georgia,” he said. “The effort is really about those people. ”Cook said literacy was a problem in the Richmond County schools her organization works with. Her organization works with a small number of schools.
    “Less than five percent read on grade level,” she said.

  3. Unfortunately this has been going on for many decades in Richmond County. Democrats always want to throw more money at this problem and it has never worked. In New York almost thirty thousand dollars per year per student is spent on education and they have a twenty six percent graduation rate. Democrats stand for the dumbing down of America and they are achieving it.
