Dougherty County School System is a Joke! I have been battling with one of the schools mentioned in this article and have encountered incompetent leadership. Students in a classroom with no teacher for a semester and they are expected to pass the same exam as those who have a teacher. Hmmm, could this be one reason the test scores are low? It is obvious that these children are being set up to fail.

What happened to holding Dougherty County School System to a standard of excellence and accountability? There must be a radical change in the structure of school leadership in order to empower all students with the ability to meet high educational standards. In other words, every student should receive quality education. However, this will require the efforts of the school board, teachers, principals, and parents.
