I cannot believe that the Cobb School Board appointed Chris Ragsdale as our interim superintendent. He has never been in the class room to work. We have tried superintendents with no classroom experience before. (Remember Joe Redden?) They didn’t work then and it will not work now.
Chris Ragsdale may be a great operations person but does he have the knowledge and education to run a school system? I think not.
What about Alice Stouder? She knows Cobb County Schools. She started as a teacher and worked her way up the ladder. She put in her time. Everyone that has worked with her says she knows and loves Cobb County Schools. Shouldn’t she have a shot at this if she wants it? She does have the education now and does not have to go back to school for her master’s degree.
Who governs the school board? Maybe it is time to get a school board that is for the school and the kids, not for other gains. Maybe the governor can explain how a school board can appoint someone who is less qualified than others who applied for the job.
