Fayette County BOE sends Easter greetings

Well, my friend who has been a dedicated, outstanding teacher for many years in Fayette County system, now retired and working 49% (on paper, but 100% in reality) got a letter today saying that there would be no contract or hope for a job in the Fayette County system next year. The timing is perfect... The letter arrived on the Saturday after schools closed for Spring Break.
Now why can't Fayette do like Clayton? They had a reduction in force of 19 COUNTY OFFICE ADMINISTRATORS!! They did not cut teachers or anyone who has direct contact with students.

What difference does it make that the BOE has finally handed her a pink slip? She's already done her 30 years and should have been gone already. So she can't go on double dipping the system? WELL BOO HOO! Those days are ove, Your "friend" ought to know better than to hang around taking up a valuable classroom slot while younger teachers with families to feed are fighting just to make it TO retirement age!

Maybe you newspaper guys just stick around taking up space (and reporting biased articles) and after 30 years and YOU should move on, but this particular teacher is a valuable asset to the students. She too has a family and herself to feed. More importantly than the paycheck, our students will suffer without her.
FYI- the BOE did NOT- and is not- going to replace her with a younger teacher with a family to feed... you do realize that this reduction is leaving many current slots unfilled - ALL are people that have direct contact with the students, none are county office level administrators. DO YOU REALLY SUPPORT THAT?
Have you seen the list of people in the "pool"? Until you do, maybe you should change your user name to BOO WHO!!
Can't wait for your twirpy, uninformed comeback to that!
Quit staying up until the wee hours of the morning and maybe you'll be able to think clearly.

To the AJC this morning, the interim superintendent has to explain why she got rid of the 19 admins AND 300 teachers. you were only half right, or half wrong, depending on how you look at it.

I yam what I yam....Popeye

Give Janet Smola and several dozen administrators their Last Supper.

WAS NOT SMOLA'S kid with one year tenure!

I would bet $1,000 on that one!

Smola's kid is keeping his job. The board chose to reduce classroom teachers school by school and not system wide. So if a teacher was at a school that did not have a reduction, they were allowed to stay. This means that there are teachers with more experience being laid off. It is funny how this was not how HR originally presented it to the school board.

"It is funny how this was not how HR originally presented it to the school board." No I bet they presented it the way it was suppose to be done. Reverse seniorty system wide.

The BOEs favoritism to their kid has set us up for major lawsuits by every hard working teacher with more seniority.

We will settle out of court or pay through the nose in court for this out of control member n their cronnies.

Chip off, (I think), the old block cause otherwise they would go elsewhere and look for a job they got own their own merits/morals?

I wonder if anyone is ever going to do anything other than watch the train wreck.
