For the love of God, please do some research. Test scores declined almost every year under Scales. The other moron liberals that hired the LOSER forgot to put a performance cause in his contract.
Fact. 1 Hamilton County pays one the highest per pupil rates in
2 All the inner City schools that Scales "helped" perform below average.
3 The whole Hamilton County preforms below average.
By the way, all this info can found on the TN Dept of Education website under the "State Report Card".
Thanks for the "backward-looking factions" maybe we can do better.
Please quit writing your uninformed political nonsense.
Once and for all, Dr Scales performance was terrible. If anyone would take the time to look at the TN dept of Education State report card. ACT scores declined steadily, system TCAP scores declined too, as far as graduation rates, maybe better, but I doubt it. We spend one the highest per pupil rates in the the State yet our test scores are below average. Maybe Thurman is a dumb hairdresser but she can still understand when test scores keep getting smaller.
To the Racism crap. Why does the NAACP have a US Office of civil rights complaint against the Scales system. Why didn't Wilson and Ricks raise cane about the rigged Lottery at Magnet Schools when real evidence that whites were winning 2 to 1 to black kids was presented to them.
That fact is, our system is corrupt! We have 5 brave Board members that stood up to stop the bleeding.
