School 'Open House' a SPLOST manipulation

We attended what was billed as “Open House” at Booth Middle School on Tues., Sep 14. The “Open House” began with general remarks by the principal, Lynn Wentzel, followed by a PTO General meeting lead by the PTO President, Rosetta Brown. This portion of the evening took approximately 30 minutes. We thought we would then head to the classrooms. However, the next portion of the meeting was a 35-minute dissertation given by Janet Smola on the merits of passing SPLOST. Ms. Smola then stated “in the interest of time” she would be available in the front hall to take questions. No opposing view was put forth, nor did Mrs. Brown ask if anyone wished to respond.
