Here are my thoughts on the special review that the Cobb County School Board will undergo, by Cognia, the accrediting agency.
After reading Saturday’s article, (4-24-21), the first thing I would like to say is “calm down.” Some people are “up in arms” about the situation, pointing fingers, and using accusatory tones.
If there is nothing wrong with the school board and how they conduct business, then there’s nothing to worry about. But, I do feel it would be “healthy” to have an independent review of the board’s practices and some positive criticism to help make it better. A better school board, means a better school district, which is good for everyone!
This review does not mean that the Cobb County School District is losing its accreditation. It is just a review.
Also, I feel we should not politicize the school board. The members of the school board should be voted on as non-partisan. The education of children is a non-partisan issue.
Let’s just wait and see what happens.
