Wright: CRCT nonrenewals are all part of a ‘witch hunt’

William Wright contends the CRCT investigation was a witch hunt. JD Sumner sees things a bit differently.

ALBANY — Community activist William Wright used a community forum Thursday night to rail against the Dougherty County School System’s decision last week to not renew the contracts of 26 teachers and administrators caught up in the governor’s CRCT cheating report and the indictment of an elementary school principal and school board member on school lunch fraud charges.

“We are being treated differently on certain things,” Wright, a former Albany-Dougherty NAACP president said. “We asked the Board to allow due process to take its course and they took those teachers jobs away anyway. We paid a Macon attorney $10,000 to tell us something we already knew (in the lunch fraud cases). So we paid $10,000 to get back, what? $300? It don’t make no sense.

“This is a witch hunt, plain and simple.”

When asked who he felt was orchestrating the “witch hunt,” Wright replied, “that’s what we have to find out. These teachers were trying to give lower income children a degree of hope. We’re not talking about right and wrong.

“Tell me this, why were all the teachers involved black? All of this so-called testing needs to be thrown out.”

The event, held in front of the Governmental Center, was held by Dougherty County Commissioner and State District 153 candidate Muarlean Edwards. Her daughter, school board member Velvet Riggins. has been indicted on school lunch fraud charges.

Called MADCAP (Making A Difference ... Community Action Positive) the gatherings are intended to be a series of mini-forums meant to address diverse and contradictory opinions by presenting stimulating conversation and information.

“I’m glad we are bringing this up,” event organizer Eddie Bankston said. “If we want to stop cheating we ought to give the children pencils without erasers on them. In the meantime we have four lawyers looking at evidence and the costs are rising faster than the meter on a taxi cab.”

DCSS substitute teacher Arrival Marks then spoke up.

“We are still operating under the oppressor’s curriculum,” she said. “And it is designed for our children to fail.”

A date for the next MADCAP community forum has yet to be determined.

How anyone could take these people seriously or consider them to be leaders is beyond my ability to comprehend. If anything, the NAACP does more harm to the black community than good. They further instill the victim mentality. Instead of truly attempting to improve education for blacks, they play the race card and convince them that "the man" (whites) has the deck stacked against them and conspires to hold them down. No progress will be made in race relations until attitudes such as this are eliminated. Sickening.

Instead one should ask, why did theBlack Educators decide to cheat, and the other race ones didn't? That is the question Mr. Wright needs to answer.

I believe, despite the costs, it will teach some integrity to the students. As far as costs, then we shouldn't waste money investigating any other crimes should we. Just let it all revert to a dog eat dog lifestyle. No one gets guns either, that way it would be rule of the fittest. Is that your view of the world? I believe you would scream the loudest if the Police refused to investigate a crime against you to save money.

This is why racism is still around. To all of the black readers who read this, you guys are the ones that have to stop people like Wright. Whites can call it like they see it all day long but the black community will not listen because the message is coming from "white" people. Here you have a man that is justifying why someone cheated. In his eyes, the teachers and administration had a "right" to cheat. Everyone knows that cheating is wrong. The black community needs to come out and shut this guy up. He states that the teachers cheated because they were trying to give the kids "hope". Well i guess that makes breaking the law ok!!! Children don't get hope because they were given something that they did not deserve. That is the problem with society. If we would start demanding perfection and hard work, that would give kids hope. Quit letting kids slide by. Does Wright realize that the DCSS is 95% black? To my knowledge, they have not hired a white administrator in over 3-4 years. The majority of the BOE is black, and the only white administrator downtown was just demoted. Will someone tell him that blacks are running the show at the DCSS. I know racism exists but it exists on both sides. I will tell you that Wright's words makes every white person in Albany just shake their head and wonder how this person could ever have been thought of as a "leader".

I agree! All blacks do not agree with Mr. Wright and his views. I believe in right and wrong. It sounds to me that he is saying it was ok for the teachers to cheat, but it's not. I don't want anyone to cheat for my kids just to push them along in school. They need to study and work hard, and if they need some extra help, it is up to me as a parent to make sure they get the assistance they need. (tutoring, etc..) I am getting sick of all the issues with the DCSS and the blacks on the board and with the system are making all of us look bad. It is up to me to teach my kids that cheating and lying is not ok, but it's sad because the students look up to their teachers. We MUST do better!

whattheheck 1 year, 11 months ago

Incredible but certainly not unexpected. Kind of like the police arresting a disproportionate number of blacks committing crime compared to whites Once again, the outrage is misplaced--should be against the cheaters and chiselers. I guess we should do the right think and just let them all go, and quit testing so they won't have to cheat.

"These teachers were trying to give lower income children a degree of hope." Now this is a stupid comment among the many. Along with, of course, "It don't make no sense"" Actually, it does make sense to those with a modicum of intelligence and a dash of integrity.
What doesn't make a lick of sense is the "oppressor's curriculum" comment. I guess what Arrival's comment means is some cannot be taught and it is always the lower income children taught by those who cheat on the CRCT.

dingleberry 1 year, 11 months ago

Arrival, I hate to tell you, but you arrived a little late with the oppressor comment. This one was most popular in the '60s but applies now only in the fervent imaginations of those who need a crutch to explain why performance is lacking. However, there is some truth to what you say in that we haven't decided to "dummy down" the curriculum to the point that all can pass without your obviously lacking skills as a substitute teacher.

I do not believe that black children need special advantages in order to succeed. I don't think they are less intelligent than other races. I don't think they need special help or cheating teachers to level their playing field. I think that those who try to tell them that they do are their enemy. I think that those who try to convince them that they are victims and are not capable of performing at the level of other races should be shouted down ran out of town on a rail, for they are the real enemy and will steal the future of the children to further their own sick, victim agenda.

agirl_25 1 year, 11 months ago

I don't think so either, Jacob. They do not need to be told by a parent or grandparent who is raising them (very seldom a 2-parent family) that an education is not so important because the government will take care of them and they don't need to be "studdin da white man"...... If they had someone who would tell them that an education was important and set an example for them, they could succeed. I cannot tell you how many times when I worked home health kids would tell me they were not going to work when they grew up because the "guv'ment" was gonna take care of them like it took care of their Mama. You have people like Wright to thank for that attitude. Oh the list is long but he is up there in the top 10.

DCSSTeacher 1 year, 10 months ago

Jacob,

You are absolutely right! It's funny how so many of my colleagues preach that every child is capable of learning and has the ability to reach high standards of achievement, but their actions contradict their "beliefs."

The problem in the CRCT scandal was NOT the students making erasures! It was the overwhelming number of corrections made by EMPLOYEES to raise their own test score percentages! Student can make any number of corrections during test time, but teachers and proctors can NOT aid the student in any way during the testing process or after if has finished! Statistics do not lie. Numbers do not lie. Those people were caught because of their own incompetence.

If you do the job you were hired to do (instead of playing movies or playing on your computer), then you won't have to worry about your students' test scores!

Finally,, DCSS substitute teachers should not be given interview time. The only requirement the county has for getting hired is whether you can breathe. They do not "teach" or have any involvement in the learning process. They are glorified babysitters who can't even do that job properly! You ought to see some of the morons who cover classes. It boggles the mind.

Wow. Wright, Bankston and Marks are clearly high up on the IQ chart. How Wright was ever put into a leadership position within the African American community is beyond me. The people involved in the CRCT scandal are being treated differently ... they are being treated like cheaters. For this so called "leader" to think allowing children to cheat or to throw out a basic curriculum test is absurd. For Bankston to make the "pencils without erasers" comment is great for the kids to stop cheating but in this case the teachers were the ones changing the answers. It is very strange that all the people being repremanded are African American, but I wonder how many were graduates from the "Havard of the South", ASU ? Who am I kidding, it's no surprise. The good teachers in this town can't get work because the schools are filled with teachers that have no ethical or moral compass. Maybe now some of the better qualified teachers can fill these positions ... as long as no cares that they may be white. This community wants everything given to them. They need to put on their big boy trousers and get on with their lives. Their children need to learn that cheating is bad and has consequences. After learning this basic truth the kids and teachers want to cheat, fine ... but when they are caught they should be thrown out. The world needs ditch diggers too.

The name MADCAP reminds me of the Mad Hatter. Unfortunate acronym to me.. I guess the witch-hunt referred to is similar to the Scarecrow's quest in the Wizard of Oz.

Why, oh, why is this group not concerned about the kids' education? Wright stated that these teachers were trying to give lower-income kids "a degree of hope". How--by showing them that cheating is the way to go? Wrong, they were only "hoping" to preserve their jobs. If they were truly concerned, they'd let the kids' answers stand so that they could qualify for services they need while they are young because there is plenty of money set aside for special needs students. By middle school, the kids who care about doing well on the tests will not be the ones who need "helping" by erasures or pointing. The others just don't care by then.

Who, pray tell, is the "oppressor"? And here's a news flash--NCLB affects teachers and students of all races and income brackets in public schools. No one likes it and neither do I, but please spare me the rhetoric.

A young man waited on me in the grocery store the other day in East Albany. He was very polite and checked me out quickly. He also was familiar with the scanner/cash register so that he didn't take up time having to call a manager there. He even noticed one of those stick-on instant coupons and took it off of my bill without my noticing it. Now I realize this isn't curing cancer, but with customer service these days, I was duly impressed. He was wearing a new class ring too, and it made me sad to think that he had likely put up with a whole bunch of junk just to make it to get that ring. I also work with quite a few people whose kids or grandkids go to public school here. They don't deserve the fish that stinks from the head down.

That is what "community organizers" should be focused on, parents and kids who aren't asking for a refund of bail money, but deserve a good education for their kids and themselves, nonetheless, and not the term that is thrown around like a basketball without regard for its meaning--"due process" of questionable employees. If they are cleared of wrongdoing, they can still be rehired.

As for Ms. Riggins, I presume she was an at-will employee of the Girl Scouts, meaning she could be fired without notice. They can't have that drama associated with their organization, there are no signs she is being removed from the school board (unfortunately), and there's nothing to indicate that anything out of the ordinary went on with her arrest and indictment. If she's mad because others didn't get caught, that doesn't sit well with me. I think as an elected official of the SCHOOL board, she should be held to a higher standard particularly with things associated with the SCHOOL board, not getting angry because she was "targeted" for getting free lunches for her kids when she didn't qualify. If you don't do wrong under the "honor system", then you don't have anything to worry about. Give me a break!!

Fourth, we know you want this be be a race issue, but it just isn't there. If any of you are wondering why Mr. Wright isn't speaking with even NAACP credentials, here's the link to an article entitled GA State NAACP President Dubose Insults Albany Branch in White Media.

It is hard to believe that there are still people out there that think like these folks. All of the civil rights activists have got to be rolling in their graves. I don't think this is what they had in mind when they went through all they did (even losing lives) for civil rights. I think that they would be mad that so many of their people don't want to aspire higher than government support or a dumbed-down education. I would think that having to fight for all that would make you want to acheive something more. And to prove to others that they deserve what was fought for.

walt, they were also sent around and used for comic relief in other communities. I remember it was during the Arthur Williams and the little guy reign, can't remember his name but he always ran for something and they were kind of like the Laurel and Hardy of government. He either got caught with his hand in the honeypot and got out of politics or just gave up entirely. Wish I could remember his name. I don't know if it is true or not but I was told that they stopped televising them when it got out that they were being used for comic relief. Apparently they went out on open circuit and later on closed circuit so they could not be recorded.

Well, I know they were hilarious, and they did stop televising them, so it makes sense that becoming a laughingstock would cause someone somewhere to re-think the process.

WRIGHT'S IDEA OF GIVING LOWER INCOME CHILDREN A DEGREE OF HOPE IS IDENTICAL TO "IGNORANCE IS BLISS".

Black_Falcon 1 year, 11 months ago

As most of the people who have read my comments know, I go out of my way to support Black folk (sometimes too far out of the way). But not even I can support this foolishness. I have long said that the NAACP, especially in Albany, GA, has outlived its usefulness. The comments made by Mr. Wright serve to illustrate my point. As someone already commented, Albany has been run by Black folk (i.e. Black mayor, police chief, school board, city commission) for years. So what is this witch hunt he is referring to? This is what happens when racism becomes the default excuse for everything. The whole town is run primarily by Black folk and Mr. Wright wants to evoke the race card. It makes absolutely NO sense “These teachers were trying to give lower income children a degree of hope. We’re not talking about right and wrong.”---Wrong again Mr. Wright (funny Mr. Wright was wrong on several issues, but I digress). To give lower income students a degree of hope you do not lower the standard by cheating. You raise the standard so that these students will have the essential tools needed to one day break from the cycle of poverty many of them are trapped in. Too many Black children (poor and otherwise) have become proficient low jumpers. The standards in the Black community have been lowered so much that mediocre is now the new norm. So what does Mr. Wright propose? He wants to lower the standards even more. Thus ensuring that these students remain academically ill equipped to change their plot in life. Again, it makes no sense. To me, it seems like the NAACP’s agenda is two-fold. One, race bait and play the race card whenever possible even if it doesn’t apply. Two, promote a victim mindset among Black folk. Victims need a hero and the NAACP can portray themselves as heroes to the Black folk who have been duped by the NAACP’s hidden agenda.

Don't be mistaken. A LOT of black people feel this way. However, they allow clowns like Wright, Riggins, Junebug and other entitlement race baiters to speak freely and don't contradict them. This silence leads others to believe that all black people want something for nothing and have no drive or ability to succed on their own merit.

Wright is exactly the type person that is wrong with this country. I couldn't agree more with what Jacob said, people like Wright are the ones that keep the fire of hatred burning. Just when the fire is about to go out, you have idiots like Wright that add fuel to it to keep the fire burning. It's all about agitation, people like Wright, June Bug do these things because they know it agitates the white folks.

Wright is a racist. He is as one-dimensional as a Klansman. He just happens to be black.

iko 1 year, 11 months ago

But what if blacks can't pass tests unless they cheat? Isn't that what Mr Wright is saying when he says the teachers "give a degree of hope" by cheating?

Doesn't that mean blacks are academically "hopeless" UNLESS they cheat? It took the NAACP to say it, but the truth finally came out.

I'll be mailing a $1.00 donation to Mr Wright over the weekend.

This guy was removed by the NAACP because his branch wasn't paying its dues to the national organization. Some clown has played the race card because his people are being held accountable for their actions? No way. Stuff like this never happens in Albany. I'm actually shocked that he didn't have the balls to go ahead and say that white people are behind the "witch hunt." That's really the only thing missing from his inane ramblings. The ignorance displayed by these "leaders" never fails to amaze me. The fact that Riggins still sits on the board is proof enough of how far these people are out of touch with reality.

"We paid a Macon attorney $10,000 to tell us something we already knew (in the lunch fraud cases). So we paid $10,000 to get back, what? $300? It don’t make no sense." The lawyers wouldn't be necessary if fraud hadn't been committed. Yes, Mr. Wright, lawyers are expensive. Welcome to reality.

“Tell me this, why were all the teachers involved black? All of this so-called testing needs to be thrown out.” Excellent non-sequitur, Mr. Wright. First of all, they aren't all black. Secondly, Dougherty County is 80% black. Do the math. All of the people who were nonrenewed should be thankful that's all that has happened. Some educators in Atlanta have actually had their licenses revoked, and the CRCT saga up there isn't even close to being over.

“If we want to stop cheating we ought to give the children pencils without erasers on them." This guy realizes it was the teachers doing the erasing, right? If the children had done the erasing, it wouldn't have been called "cheating"; it would have been called "checking your answers." Does this mean he thinks it's against the rules for a student to change an answer on a test? This is kind of awkward.

“We are still operating under the oppressor’s curriculum" Who is the oppressor? Is that a No Child Left Behind dig? Yes, NCLB is deeply flawed, but blaming Bush was so 2008. Your community should collectively take a look in the mirror. There's your oppressor. Stop being part of the problem and become part of the solution. It's not too late.

Some of the most honest and forthright assessments of Albany and its problems are found on YouTube, posted by young black men (some are hard to understand because they talk in typical street talk----'yo bro sort of stuff) but they do tell it like it is. They are hilarious to watch and interesting at the same time. You should give it a look. I just typed in ALBANY, GEORGIA and up popped a ton of videos by online Dr. Phil wannbe characters.

Muarlean and William are a matched pair who don't see anything wrong as long as a "leg up" goes to the right people, over and over, but certainly no leg for the "oppressors". Muarlean's little apple likely didn't fall far from the tree hence the need for Velvet's "leg up".since she was only feeding her hungry children something other than Girl Scout cookies--not a matter of right and wrong, as Wright rightly points out,and "it just don't make no sense". Witch hunters!

From the comments that were contained in Mr. Wright's "speech" and the tripe that has been posted on Herald comments in the past, I see a distinct similarity to what Mr. Wright has been saying and what either Bubbavet_rureel or coachjohnson43 has been saying. From the poor English language usage used by Bubbavet_rureel, I'd say HE is Mr. Wright.

Attention: Some teachers will be cleared after their tribunals; some will be cleared through the rigorous appeals process. There must be cause identified before a non-renewal can be issued, the materials are being reviewed in hope of finding cause.

The civil right activists are entitled to their opinions; they are entitled to freedom of speech. They are responding to what they feel are injustices.

Yep, they all have rights. So do thieves, murderers, illegal aliens, terrorists, and perverts. I'ts ironic that so many wrongs have rights. What about the rights of law abiding people who don't want to feel threatened when they go out. Who want teachers and public officials that they can trust. Who want to exercise their liberty without violating the liberty of others. There needs to be a righteous revolution in this country. People need to stand up and defend what is good and moral , not just what is profitable for them. 1 Cor. 6: 9-12

Make sure the person you get to check your work has a real education, and not a DCSS or ASU free pass diploma. In just this post, the most glaring errors are as follows:

"You will be suprise at" "Who normal pay the tribunals?" "Who provide protection of liberty" "Homework look SCOTUS up"

Subject verb agreement, sentence structure, and coherent thoughts are all good starting points for your homework. Maybe one should consider getting past 6th grade English before tackling the USSC and their lofty opinions... friend.

Bubbavet_rureel 1 year, 11 months ago

Hello friends, I will give you a class on subject verb agreement. There are several rules associated with this subject.

Less look at Bubba’s basic rule The basic rule states that a singular subject takes a singular verb, while a plural subject takes a plural verb . The trick is in knowing whether the subject is singular or plural. The next trick is recognizing a singular or plural verb.

Verbs do not form their plurals by adding an s as nouns do. In order to determine which verb is singular and which one is plural, think of which verb you would use with he or she and which verb you would use with they. Lesson 1 Bubbas, Bubba Which one is the singular form? Which word would you use with Bubba? We say, "Bubba talks." Therefore, Bubba is singular. We say, "Bubbas talk." Therefore, Bubbas is plural.

Be careful - Bubba is a person, and he would be the verb.

Bubba -He, Bubbas -They

What you seem to have missed in all the "commentary" you have heaped on us is that the discussion of this article has nothing to do with the teachers and their rights to appeals. It has to do with the fact that Williams' statements like, "These teachers were trying to give lower income children a degree of hope.", were as stupid as they come. And, the thinking put forth by those in the article is backwards.

I don't think anyone wants to deny any of these teachers their due process. The question is whether or not the DCSS can provide it and if it can get done in due time. That is what everyone is upset about.

MRKIA, I stand for justices; injustice is not legal in America. My efforts are for what is right, and if you’re honest with yourself, you and others have not given the teachers a fair deal. You have publicly humiliated then, you have discredited their profession and station.

They have numerous rights and appeals that will be heard by the judicial process, the tribunal is the first phase, and the outcome will set the stage for future appeals. The court reporter will play a major part in the appeals process.

Finally, I am writing to the audience level of intelligence, I deploy different strategies to capture my audience attention. Your attempt to discredit my grammar etc... Will only make you look bad.

Trust me; I’m the Real Deal – Bubbavet_rureel. I’m prepared to go the distance. I have the money and the resources. However, they have super lawyers. Justice is on their side, public opinion will never trump true justice.

All the other distractions aside, if students, teachers, whoever, have to cheat to pass the CRCT, a test in which 64% accuracy would give you the score of 800 required to meet standards, there is a problem. A huge problem. The 800 pound gorilla in the room is that these kids did not know enough to meet minimum standards. That, alone, should be cause for serious concern.

What I want to know is how Wright makes money. He's been around forever with his Traveling Show of Racism and Reverse-Robin Hood rhetoric. He never seems to actually work.

He and the POTUS do have something in common, being "community organizers". All they do is continue to wage war against The [White] Man, blaming him for their own inadequacies. I'm surprised Wright hasn't brought up the "fair share" BS yet.

Wright fully supports cheating as a way for blacks to get ahead. When is someone else in the black community going to stand up and say, "this is NOT what we believe"? Because no one does, I'm forced to believe that the black community supports The Village Idiot.

I'm happy to read Falcon's comment though. It's refreshing.

1

agonized 1 year, 10 months ago

Actually, in my opinion, I believe many hard-working black people do feel the way that Falcon does, as there have been posts upthread. They'd like to move forward, as MLK envisioned, but a subset, a very vocal subset, of the black community are the ones protesting over teachers losing jobs (in some cases, rightfully so), and not the bigger issue of students getting a poor education. I think it's really a certain "entitlement" mindset that transcends racial lines in America (like the Occupy Wall St stupidity), but in Albany, that's not the case.

However, I think it's difficult to speak out. I'd equate it to a doctor speaking out against Phoebe. Of course, this is all my opinion, and I'm not black, so I don't presume to speak for the black community. It's just my observations of my friends and living in this area for most of my life.
