Well, done. This needs to be shared extensively.

Third Tuesday in March might be too late for John but it could be a way to get the attention of people not involved in this particular incident.

Spot on! I am so glad to hear that John has a lot of support. As far as textbooks, the best has to be the science consumable books that never get used. They are gorgeous, but who has time for science when our kids are so far behind in reading? Then there is the new vocabulary series the district bought, yet the company is now no longer producing one of the most valuable pieces to the curriculum - the guide the students use (also a consumable). Great planning. Someone needs to check if these companies are based out of NC or just programs they use there.
Which reminds me, can anyone explain or share how much the district spends to bring the NC trainers here to teach us how to water down said reading curriculum that John didn't agree with (and I agree with him)? I can't remember a time someone locally was brought in to do a reading training. Oh wait, it would have been 4 years ago!!

I am trying to understand the head hunting Lathan is doing...Maybe she should go after her own head for ordering Principals to tell their teachers to give students no less than a 50 on any paper. Some are also required to add 30 points to that paper.
