At a time when the Cobb School District is in the process of laying off teachers and increasing class sizes throughout the school district, Superintendent Dr. Michael Hinojosa is effectively lowering the level of teacher proficiency everywhere and then proposes to spend valuable resources by adding 50 less qualified teachers to some of the lowest-level schools to bring them back to where they were before the cut-backs. That does nothing more than bring the high end of education in the CCSD down to a point where it is closer to the low end without improving anything at the bottom. That does nothing more than build a road to failure.
When do we stop acting smart and start educating our kids? If Dr. Hinojosa is searching for total equality, why doesn’t he simply shut down all of the schools and quit trying to get his arms around effective education? That would save a lot of money in tough times and all of our children would remain 100 percent equal — all dumb. Better yet, why doesn’t he look for a different job that he can get his arms around? Our children can’t afford any more of his brilliant ideas in Cobb County.
