DEAR EDITOR:

Since Superintendent Michael Hinojosa is leaving his position with the Cobb Schools, may I suggest that the school board hire a person with experience as a teacher, legislator, editorialist and administrator? If you want a person to fix your car, you hire a master mechanic. If you want to focus on education, you hire an accomplished educator. I humbly submit Mr. Roger Hines as a person who cares about Cobb County, its teachers and students, and has vast experience in education in our area.

If he would accept the position, I think that you would provide Cobb with a great future!

J.F., have you ever read Roger's stuff here? He's stuck in 1960. We need to prepare for the future, not hide in the past.

Roger would be a good choice but is probably out of the BOE's comfort zone. After all, he only taught in the classroom for 40 years and was a member of our state legislature part time. How could he possibly know anything about educating kids or leading a school system. Besides the MDJ absolutely hates the CCSD and he would lose his column.

Doesn't Roger live in Kathy's Post. Since she is refusing to run again (I wish she would change her mind) Roger should run for school board. We cannot let Bill Scott win by default. Bill is NOT a republican and is an awful candidate. He has an agenda that has nothing to do with what is best for Cobb students.

Real smart. Hire someone with absolutely no administrative experience. No wonder Cobb Schools keep going down the drain.

The current problem is that we have too many... Administrators. We need someone who sincerely understands education and has some ideas on how to lead the education children and how to build and manage a system that delivers education and produces graduates. We certainly don't need anymore pseudo executive types who are only interested in power, politics, publicity and building their resume. Cobb has now suffered too long with superintendents that have been - Administrators- we need a leader and a manager.

You ought to check the job description.

Hiring a politician to do administration is a big mistake.
