VSU...I DON'T usually agree with your posts but...I agree with that one we do have the right to voice our opinions, yet do those by Sister have to be as divisive all the time? Most historians claim we all originated from Africa so if that is the case we all should fall to our knees.....Congo is jacked up now though

"The black community knows them too but damned well won't reveal them because they are trying despartely to retain the DoCoSBd check book in the control of the incestuous nest of corrupt rogues. Black preachers know the new Escalades and BMW's are gone if the check book is lost and ASU is removed as Personnel Office at DCSS a lot of black preachers have lightened collection plates, so to speak.....The level of incompetence in educators coming from ASU and at DCSS is staggering. Not that the teachers are bad people or poorly intended they are just flat out incompetent.'

Thats an awfully big remark to make with no evidence....I hope you have some proof...As a product of both I take offense to that last statement...I am far from an incompetent teacher and would challenge you to come to my class anytime to see the work I do and stand by that statement'...I know plenty of teachers who come from both the DCSS and ASU who have been chosen as Teacher of the Year by their school districts as well as awarded numerous other achievements on local state and national levels...now are there some who are incompetent?? Absolutely, but not just limited to the ASU and DCSS....This election may/may not reek of shadiness but at the end of the day the children is what should be the most important concern.

I don't know...I don't have a temper but I am passionate about my views...to me there is a difference...I talk to you with respect and I expect the same that is all....there may be validity in your theory AND i can see where you may suspect that to be the case...it does make one wonder...but even if that is the case, I am ignorant enough to believe the people will do the right thing on this matter, whatever it may be.....whoever is elected let us support our system and our children more importantly....

And on another note I watched my father who sat on that same school board until his death in 1999 after serving for over 36 years as an administrator coach and teacher in this very same system over what was best for ALL of the children of the DCSS often spending more time with others children than he spent time with his own because HE CARED....my family probably has over 100 years of their lives spent in educating the children of this system as well as over 4 generations of my family being products of the DCSS with all of them leading productive and successful lives so you see Mr/Ms VSU, this MEANS SOMETHING TO ME so much more than idle chatter and bickering and name calling....so if you want to discuss these issues face to face, ask around the city about me and my family(Cutts or Kelley)....I can easily be found....

I wish teachers had more say in the policy making decisions...Teaching is the only profession run by those who are not actually in the profession...The State Board is run by Lawyers...The AMA, is run by doctors....the Nursing Association is run by nurses....Education?? Run by politicians,many of whom have little to no experience in the field....therein to me lies the problem.

I hope that is not the case but if it is that is ridiculous....white ain't always right and black shouldn't make one step back......if Dr. Price is the best candidate out of the two and has the best platform for the betterment of all the children of DCSS then so be it....if it is Rev.Heard then so be it as well...it is time for Albany to be more forward thinking and not so racially divisive....it's sad that people feel this way,but I can remember when black people in this city felt white people felt the same way.....for her to win the primary the way she did,clearly some people of color had to think she was the better candidate also....My question is what is the community as a whole doing to make A difference besides complaining and making excuses?? Good luck to both candidates as they express their views in this debate....We must not forget that the CHILDREN are the most important concern,not the color of the people the citizens choose to represent them
