Glenn Hills High School Prin­cipal Wayne Frazier, one of the most outspoken and well-known principals in Augusta, was transferred to an interim-principal position at Tubman Education Center on Thursday, with school officials offering different reasons for the switch.

Glenn Hills Principal Wayne Frazier spOKE to a literature class in April. Frazier, one of the most outspoken and well-known principals in Augusta, was transferred to an interim-principal position at Tubman Education Center on Thursday.

Some said the transfer was because of poor test scores at Glenn Hills while others stressed the need for Frazier’s expertise at the struggling alternative school.

Superintendent Frank Roberson said it was because of both.

“It’s a combination of things,” he said. “It’s a matter of trying to put people in the system where their skills are accepted and exemplary.”

The Richmond County Board of Edu­cation unanimously approved 8-0 the transfer at a called board meeting Thursday, with Eloise Curtis and Venus Cain absent.

Rober­son said school officials will decide within a month whether the position should be changed from interim to permanent.

Frazier has been known for his aggressive and unorthodox approaches to school reform.

He has said he believes if educators focus on emotional support for children growing up in neighborhoods with poverty, crime and broken homes, higher test scores will follow.

In 2010, he required all employees, from custodians to teachers, to mentor at least one student, which entailed things such as home visits and trips to high school football games.

In April, Frazier requested a later start time for Glenn Hills for the 2012-13 year, which he said would improve attendance and attention in class for students who struggle with early mornings.

The request never made it to a school board meeting agenda for a vote.

Roberson said several teachers complained to school officials about Frazier’s style over the past year. He said at least 12 teachers, mostly in the math department, left the school because of the environment Frazier created.

In 2012, just 7 percent of Glenn Hills students met or exceeded standards in Math II and 16 percent passed Math I, according to scores presented to the board last week by math coordinator Shelly Allen.

Board member Jack Padgett said with such low scores, a school such as Glenn Hills, which is a recipient of the federal School Improvement Grant program to turn around the bottom 5 percent of the nation’s schools, needs different leadership.

“Something needs to change,” Padgett said.

But Frazier said the poor performance is not a simple fix and can only improve with continuing change to the culture and makeup of the school.

“All the teachers who left are teachers who I would not have put in front of my own children,” Frazier said. “I was aggressive in having them moved or asking them to move.”

Frazier has been with Rich­mond County schools since 1996. He became principal at the now closed Tubman Middle School in 2008, and the school then made Adequate Yearly Progress standards for
the first time, Frazier said.

He took over Glenn Hills, a school struggling with discipline problems, gangs and poor academics, the next year.

In 2010-11, Glenn Hills increased its graduation rate by 7 percentage points to 86.1 percent, making it the school with the highest graduation rate of all the 40 schools in Georgia receiving the School Improvement Grant.

Roberson said Frazier made drastic improvements during his first principal position in the alternative school from 2003 to 2008, and his expertise is needed there again as the school struggles with discipline and academic problems.

Despite the accomplishments, the superintendent said a school has to have harmony among staff, which might have been missing at Glenn Hills.

“You can’t just simply
ignore (complaints),” Rober­son said. “It affects the culture.”

On Thursday, the board approved Charles Givens Sr., the assistant principal at Glenn Hills, to become interim principal.

Frazier said he will look at the switch as an opportunity to help more children be successful, especially ones coming from tough environments.

“Wherever I go, I’m going to do what’s best for the children,” Frazier said. “It’s not the children’s fault. This kind of stuff happens. Like I told Dr. Roberson: Where I come from, if the bosses say ‘You work here,’ that’s where you’re going to work. If
you decide you’re not going to do it with class or with your head up high, you need to go.”

Frazier guarantees that on the first day of classes Aug. 13 he will have a smile on his face, welcoming the students.

MILLAGE UNCHANGED

Most Richmond County property owners will not see an increase on the school portion of their tax bills next year.

The Richmond County Board of Education voted 8-0 not to raise the millage of 19.110 for fiscal year 2013, with Eloise Curtis and Venus Cain absent.

With the same rate used since 2010, the school system will collect an additional $1.8 million because new construction has added properties to the tax digest, according to school system Controller Gene Spires.

Last year, when the board also voted not to raise the millage, the school system collected $111,487 less than the previous year because property values decreased overall.

Spires said he was “elated” by the growth in property this year.

Shuffle the Deck Chairs

See, the way the underperforming school game is played, you have to make progress in three years or do something radical. But if you shuffle around some staff personnel in two years, they reset the clock. Voilá, starting over at Glenn Hills with no penalty! Ain’t NCLB good?

Bad Business

I notice the saying "it is not the kids fault" Ok, if it is not the kids fault then where does the fault fall? You are expected to come to school and learn, not party and act like you have zero home training. I still say it falls on the parents as well, because 70 % of the parents are standing up for their little monsters instead of caging them and presenting them with the "I AM THE PARENT, WHICH PARENT TYPE STUFF SHOULD BE DONE!" Especially with the options of what is presented in the media, as the presenters of the media have "NO" remorse or care of responibility for their material. Our values as a nation are ridiculous because the words " They are kids" justifies their actions. I do not think so! These kids of the 2000's are super smart, but spend their energy on following ( there is that media thing again). As an example: Lil Wayne is not your friend young people and I bet you any amount of money as long as you are following he gets paid and believe me he is not sharing and could careless about cd buyer number 899,632!
So when someone comes in and gets tough here comes the complaints. My kids made A's and an B every once in awhile. Look at Davidson( two of my kids graduated from there) ,3 fights in 20 years, Hmmmmm I wonder why (

If only more principals had

If only more principals had the passion and dedication that Dr. Frazier has.

Frankly, I could care less about a principal who upsets a few teachers, administrators and board members. It's good for them.

When you see Dr. Frazier in action, you realize the ones who are upset are the ones who are worried about themselves and not about the students.

It's about education, not schools

By the way, if you haven't noticed, some of our schools here in Augusta need a little shaking up.

It's time for parents to demand more principals like Dr. Frazier who aren't afraid to rock the boat and fight for our kids.

The good ole boy system of watching each other's back while watching our kids fail has got to end.

Spartan at Heart

As a Glenn Hills Alumni, it hurts to see the school I graduated from in such deep despair. I believe that is because of lax or non-existent parenting, not the school administration. No doubt Mr. Frazier lost face and authority with his much publicized problems, but that school needs a Mr. Clark! As do many in Augusta, with support from the community. And they need to send non/low performing teachers down the road, as did Mr. Frazier.

My heart broke when my oldest son left Augusta to teach in another system. He needed a change for other reasons, but had talked with me over the last 4 years about the frustrations of NCLB. This included "Inclusion", countless reports and files required which took away from instruction time, and the inability to remove kids, who didn"t care, from the classroom. He worked 3 jobs to make ends meet and met with many kids for tutilage after hours.

I talked to him tonight, and for the first time in a while, I heard that old fire and enthusiasm in his voice. We, Augusta... need to stand up and support the teachers and Principals who will take the tough stand. The teachers unions are powerful, and could care less about the end results, but focus on their membership and honoring tenure. Let's take a novel approach and support the GOOD teachers and Administrators willing to do what's right. Otherwise, we are destined to become a bottom tier system, and further fuel the downward spiral of Augusta Georgia.

When I met Dr. Robinson, I felt as if we had our man. Then...tragedy struck. I can only hope and pray he will emerge to be the same man he was before. There was a kindness in his eyes, an intelligence I could not fully grasp the depth of, and yet, a toughness I could sense he had the capacity for. I pray he will fully return to be the man and leader he was. He met me one time and then, the same night, called my name twice during a speech.

Without our schools rising to extra-ordinary levels, no new families will locate to Richmond County. They will continue to locate in Columbia County and work in Richmond County.

We don't need no education...
We don't need no thought control...
No dark sarcasm in the classroom...
Hey Teacher, Leave them kids alone....

Pink Floyd come true!

Finally the Liberal Touchy Experiementing stopped.

How about simply stop finding excuses and restart with Proven Old School Teaching Methods.

Reading, Writing, Math, English, Social responsibility and proper manners. Plus, Strict Classroom discipline at the principle and teacher levels, not downtown.

BTW: Watch for his name to appear many more times for legal and Political reasons in the next 2 years.

Wonderful News!!

Thank God for Dr. Roberson moving this fake clown. He'll always justify his negative behavior to make himself look good. He doesn't care about the children only making a name for himself. Every one knows and he's only fooling himself. What a joke! I removed my chldren from Glenn Hills because I got tired of him suspending my son for foolish things. This clown will continue to be exposed because he is a control freak and lack leadership skills. Since he's not the principal, I may attend Parent Nights! By the way, he'll also have problems at the Alternative School. How long will it take to send him into retirement?

Today is right.

I "taught" under Frazier, although teaching was nearly impossible because of his inept, racist, and nepotic "leadership." He has absolutely no reason to be employed by the school system. Homophobic (I personally heard him refer to students as "[filtered word]"), racist (white teachers from every school he has "principalled" have been harassed to the point where many may sue. He is truly a terrible principal, and a horrible person. He just has the media duped (as well as Mr. Spinks). He should have been fired, not transferred.

You folks remind me of that

You folks remind me of that movie "Coach Carter."

Parents were all too happy to let their kids fail and be dumb as bricks, but please, oh, please don't rock the boat.

We have all too often listened to the educators at the expense of listening to our kids. The school "system" should protect the kids and not protect teachers' jobs.

Requiring teachers to have home visits?

What is the attitude that says teachers need to be students' best friends, emotional counselors, and family social worker. I agree that children must be trained to learn and conform to society, but the notion that teachers are now social workers is ridiculous! Why do we have guidance counselors if the teachers are doing the work? The Teachers as Advisors (TAA) program is a waste of academic time. Were teachers provided training on how to counsel and compensated for their time?

Changing the time school starts because the kids are tired and tardy is not the answer. Parents get control and put them on the bus! That statement about what bosses say is common sense. Of course you will do what the boss says! News flash--a leader does not chase 12 teachers away. This is why RCSS is not Excellence in Education.

The Real Deal

Most of the comments here are laughable considering the emperor has no clothes. First, an educator and administrator must lead by example. You cannot demonstrate behavior that is disrespectful, boorish, and unprofessional and expect others to do the opposite. You cannot expect teachers and staff to constantly have their jobs threatened, constantly berated, and told that you don't do anything right and be happy teaching at your school. You cannot allow those in gangs and drug dealers to walk the halls and do whatever they want to do while randomly targeting hardworking students who aren't troublemakers. You cannot curse out parents, screaming at the top of your voice, threaten to have them removed from campus and expect them to still support you and keep their children in the school. Why did parent night start with a packed cafeteria his first year and dwindle to a handful by the end of this school year?

Second, all the accolades that have been showered upon him have been mostly based on his words. Both Tubman and Glenn Hills had already made AYP before he came, so his presence did not make a difference, though he took credit for both. It is telling that the staff he brought with him to Glenn Hills had all left two years later because of his behavior.

Third, though there were a couple of teachers who needed to leave, most of the teachers that left were actually his best. They tried to work with him, but no one wants to work 9-10 hour days, bust their behinds teaching students during the day and after school, and still be told that what they are doing isn't good enough. Students aren't going to perform well when they are subjected to a chaotic environment where the administrator constantly interrupts instruction on the intercom, barges into classrooms interrupting instruction, and even testing.

Those low math scores are a direct result of shuffling students and teachers around, having students in the wrong classes, and not switching them until two to three months later.

I just wish some of you who seem to have all the answers about education by listening to Rush Limbaugh and company would please just sub one week in any school in this district so that your eyes can be opened to reality. I keep repeating: THERE ARE NO TEACHER UNIONS IN GA!!. If we did, we would have been out protesting furloughs, work conditions, etc. like the teachers in other parts of the country. So let's leave that factor out of the equation.

All of what I've described is just the tip of the iceberg. So I hope that Dr. Roberson continues to make the changes that are necessary to move this school district forward.

try as they might education
Unpublished

try as they might education is a 3 sided equation, consisting of the teachers&admin/student/PARENT(S), what richmond county and other faining school districts do not understand or underestimate is the importance of PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT!!!!! parental involvement is the foundation of learning and being a successful and law-abiding individual/citizen. the school board thinks by "developing programs to reach out and understand the child" is what is going to work. WRONG glen hills, butler, laney, josey, and any other failing school will continue to do so as long as the school district/government allows the sorry, trifling, no-good, "in da club-party all the time" parent (s) to abdicate their responsibility to raise, feed, clothe, discipline, and motivate their own children. schools can't and should not raise children, that is not their job, the school job is to EDUCATE!!! IT'S TIME TO GET BACK TO BASICS, THE 3 R'S if a child is disrespectful, violent, not motivated-unewilling to learn, or disruptive the school should send is butt back to his/her sorry and trifling parent (s) by way of expulsion. any/all gov't assistance/welfare should be tied to the child's perfomance in school this way come ebt/snap time if the child is not performing then no free gov't money for the mammy to fill her shopping cart up with steaks, crab legs, or shrimp for her and her "man of the week" lysterine or whatever his name is.

You Do It!

I will say it again :" Those who are doing all the complaining or noncomplaining should just try that job for one day" Again I will say: " There is a total lack of values installed in children today and values is a huge word which covers respect, duty, honor, discipline, accountability and self policing for starters. To many darn excuses in society today. I also see a lot of the complaining seems to be from a troubled childs parents? Lean on Me was not just a movie, it was a real situation that spawned from the same thing we are talking of right here. The ring leader of the protest had the worse child in the bunch! Once again take that job for one day and see if you can keep the rules straight, rotten kids straight, rotten parents straight and remain sane all at the same time just for starters. A teacher or leader should not have to come to work with a bullet proof vest or a law degree because some child cannot control their behavior, which starts and ends at HOME! ! ! Teaching used to be a passion, now it is a fear!

Craziness on the Hill

“Wherever I go, I’m going to do what’s best for the children,” Frazier said. “It’s not the children’s fault. This kind of stuff happens. Like I told Dr. Roberson: Where I come from, if the bosses say ‘You work here,’ that’s where you’re going to work. If you decide you’re not going to do it with class or with your head up high, you need to go.”

These statements that Dr. Frazier made is the perfect example that he's NOT a LEADER but a BOSS. A BOSS gives orders in a domineering manner but a LEADER is a person who INFLUENCES a group of people teowards the achievement of a goal. Also, he never did any work and wasn't the brightest star in the sky; therefore, the incompetent staff covered because he was always intoxicated on the job. They let this man stay in place long! lol

He's an ignorant BOSS! What I find amusing is that during my years on the hill, the children were NEVER a problem but Dr. Frazier!!! Spartan@heart stated we needed a Joe Clark. That's the problem, he thought he was Joe Clark but didn't have the intelligence or the leadership skills to turn the school around. He talks loud but saying nothing. Effective leadership doesn't call the media for stories about their jobs and uses the same monologue, "It's about the children." Come on, Ray Charles can see through his bogus intent! lol

A bit of advice for Dr. Frazier, "The seeds that you have sown, reaping is now at your door." The seeds that Frazier has planted and the the anger that he has within are apparent that he thought GHHS was a bootcamp. Sending him back to the Alternative School was a slap in his face. He may as well smile when they arrive on August 13th, because he will continue to spiral downwards. Like he did on the Hill, he'll target the children that he professes to love and continue to send them out the door. Guess what, he's in for a wonderful surprise. Parents are empowered now to know that Frazier can be reported and someone will now listen!!

Working on the Hill, we often heard the negative and belligerent names about the former superintendent that had balls. Also, the Central Office was labeled as the Puzzle Palace. It's sad that this man actually thought the Board and Central Office Cabinet were foolish to consider him as Deputy Superintendent. He screamed and yelled about a set up with his DUI, NO he was guilty. Interesting, what is his excuse when he can't get off the second DUI?

Nocnoc is correct, we will hear more legal and political problems in the next two years. What I remember as a staff member is that he loves to play the victim and has created the world in which he lives. He doesn't have the support that he thinks he has.

If Frazier is such a good school administrator that many are suggesting on this board, WHY wasn't he assigned to Crosscreek or Davison? No one at the state or national level have sought him for anything! The reason is that everyone doesn't wear blinders!! lol That's right, he's played everyone in believing that he's the "one" to work with these "types" of students that no one understands. No, it's not that, he has to be where he can front because he doesn't have the intellect to serve outside his element. This man has manipulated people to get where he is. Well, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall and all the King's Horses and Men couldn't put him back together again.

Kudos to Dr. Roberson and the Board 8-0 GREAT job. Hopefully, the next time Frazier is before you, he's on his way out the door. To the staff on the Hill, wake up, you have grounds for a class action lawsuit.

It sounds like the majority

It sounds like the majority of readers/commenters of this article have first hand account with Mr Frazier. From the outside looking in, he appeared to be like a fly in the ointment for those students not interested in learning and succeeding. I don't have any problem with that approach and hope other admin learn from it. If teachers and staff are treated disrespectfully, that's one thing. But requiring them to go above and beyond the call, to ensure the next generation is given the right influences and direction, is completely within reason. My thought on that is the same as any other employer, "If you don't want to do the job, you are certainly capable of leaving and we will find someone who is more agreeable to our requirements."

The Tsar!

All successful schools MUST be run by a benevolent, focused, disciplined principal. If not, the school will falter. I'm sure that somewhere beneath Mr. Frazier's ragged exterior there beats a good heart, but the man is not a leader, and many times shows great distain for his employees. Glenn Hills does not need a Tsar; it needs someone who understands that education is a business. Great businesses aren't built by bullies, but by people who grasp the true meaning of leadership, which is essential to success. As the captain goes, so goes the ship.

Response to David Parker

The world is always different looking from the outside. Because my best wasn't good enough, that's why I had no problem leaving. My school year was great because my new school administrator is competent and a LEADER!! Frazier has played this game for years and is not a good influence. The chickens have come home to roost. IF parents and students loved him, they will come out and rally to stop his transfer! lol Guess he's surprised that they haven't!!

Noxiousfumes stated how the parents would be punished to listen to him at Parent Nights say the same thing over and over and talk for 45 minutes. No regards for their time but all about Wayne Frazier. After the first time, parents started boycotting Parent Nights! It's possibly that there will be a large turnout for open house!! He was furious because it became the staff's fault that they were not coming! This man uses a lot of projection but never looks at the man in the mirror!! WOW!! This is definitely a narcisstic and antisocial personality disorder. Toxic combination....lol

Noxiousfumes also sumed it up best: "Most of the comments here are laughable considering the emperor has no clothes. First, an educator and administrator must lead by example." Powerfully stated...

I witnessed parents cry because their child would be suspended for ten days fornot wearing an ID badge and once he/she returns, he sends them back out of the door for ten more days. He loves the children? Once two students were suspended for 20 days!!!! That's definitely illegal. He's about punitive because he doesn't know anything else.

Basically, he's the kind of BOSS , not LEADER that you bring in for a year and send them to another school to establish order. He stayed on the hill to long; therefore, his behavior was like a bull in a china shop, destroying everything in sight!! lol He needed snitches that would tell him things. Therefore, whatever they said true or false, he believed them. Childish...

It was a zoo on the hill. He wasn't the keeper of the zoo BUT the MOST obnoxious animal stirring up confusion. There was no consistency and once the staff were given directives, the next hour, the rules changed. It was terrible and there are many hurting staff that does have recourse because his superior did nothing to stop the madness. Prayerfully, they can heal and move forward. It's sad but a hostile environment with no cover of protection.

One of the coworkers shared that so many teachers were requesting transfers, he called and asked them to stop transferring teachers from the school. lol Also, during an assembly program with people from the state, the coworkers shared how the students booed him in front of guests. When the teachers tried to silence them, they got louder. IF there was a legitimate love for him, I don't think they would have embarrassed him in front of guest.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions but those of us that were in the heat of the battle daily know the story better than anyone and ALL of us have the same experiences. If his superior was on top of her game and truly wanted to support the staff, she would have made unannounced visits to see him in action. He loved the cameras and would hand select students to say certain things in front of the media. Once the camera was off, Dr. Jekyll would return on the intercom with comments, "You must be a [filtered word]. Pull up your pants. Nobody wants to see your orange panties." OR talking about students' mothers. One student went irate because his mother was deceased. IF he cared about them, he would learn about them and not antagonized. It became so bad, the coaches taught many students what to do when he singled them out. YET, he loves the children. So does a pedophile...lol

More things will continue to surface about him and it's not going to be pretty. One thing is certain, karma doesn't discriminate!! Stay tune it's only going to get better. To the VA mental asylum, he's almost ready to come...lol

Here we go again!

You know what? I bet all of the parents on here grumbling had children that ran free at Glenn Hills before Frazier. Guess they forget the rapes in the fields near the school, guns in the school before he came. You had teachers living for the weekend and the paycheck, not your child's education. I guess we just keep on teaching our children that laxity and disinterest is normal in schools. I know this man enjoys what he does...seen him at games when he should have been home resting. At rallies for stopping youth violence. He is concerned about his students--i've even seen him ask younger children at functions "say aren't you so and so's little sister/brother..?" You don't get that with unconcerned professionals. I know Mr. Givens will do a good job. I hope he doesn't get railroaded too.
