Takes `childish' School Board to task



The opening remarks at the Richmond County School Board meeting should be "Welcome to Comedy Central."

I bet each morning the trustees look in the mirror and say, "I am black" and "I am white." That will not change, but their attitudes have to change. Does it really make any difference what color the president of the Board is? ...

I suggest all (on the School Board) go look up the meaning of the word "trustee" and quit acting like a child caught in the act of a misdeed. Let's get rid of the headlines "divided among racial lines" and get Georgia out of the cellar in education.
