Of course this matter is having a negative affect on the STEP III vote on Nov. 8th. The problem with the school system is not the amount of money to work with; it is the way they spend what they have to work with. MRS. BAKER IS THE POSTER CHILD FOR WHY WE SHOULD NOT VOTE FOR AN EXTRA PENNY OF EVERY DOLLAR TO BE GIVEN TO THE SCHOOL SYSTEM TO SPEND WITH NO ACCOUNTABILITY.
It is a felony to submit a false document to the government, not a misdemeanor.
Good point, but don't you think that the out of that 80%, many of them do not report their actual income which enables them to qualify for even more government subsidies?
I think the city should buy a big sign that states, " SPLOST Revenue at Work", and hang it over the cafeteria.
Exactly. It is sad that some struggle to pay when so many don't.
Thank you Mr. Hendricks for making the obvious point out that you all have employees from other schools and churches. The Potter's Hand Learning Center sounds like it will provide daycare, and maybe with additional children, they can employ additional staff as well. Sherwood does have a right to make their own decisions. I am sure that there are reasons that none of us know that lead Sherwood to make the decision that it made.
For all the employees, children, and PARENTS THAT ACTUALLY PAY, I truly am sorry for this inconveince. As for all of the other posters, if you are not a tithing member of Sherwood, what gives you the right to say what Sherwood spends their money on? What gives you any right to say what service they should provide?
Be careful jumping on the bandwagon and assuming that Sherwood is guilty of anything. In my experience, I noticed that parents were taking advantage of the church. They knew that a church would not kick their child out as quickly as a private daycare and so many parents didn't pay for after school care. I would bet that the same is true for the day care program. Parents' priorities are sometimes their cars, clothes, ect. Parents are too quick to assume that their child is the government's, the child's teacher's, or church's responsibiltiy instead of their own. My child went their for years. I am a mother that gets no child support nor government support. I never expected the church to keep my child for free. I made a decision to have a child and expect no one but me to sacrifice for my child. The sad thing is, it is not only the poor that doesn't always pay their own way. It is often the ones that would just rather you and I pay than sacrifice for their own child.
I agree. Mr. Duffy needs go!
