LOL I don't think players and pimps care one tiny iota about the school system here.
I really hope this mess gets sorted out and everyone involved fired/indicted immediately. The good schools in the system should not have to deal with this garbage.

And it shows.

I'm just talking more for the white people moving in- And all those business people moving down. You need to call yourself player or pimp when you arrive. Doesn't matter which one. And don't forget to get rid of your clothes from the gap and be sure to put rims on your ride. Make a checklist!

This is sort of like a preparation for your new home.

I just read this article. What happened is truly outlandish.

Hall was being paid over $400,000 a year (and provided with a personal limo and chauffeur) to lead Atlanta's schools. The City of Atlanta's budget has exploded, despite dwindling enrollments. The City spends far more per pupil than any other system in the state and is loaded with scores of highly paid "administrators." City residents have poured over $1 billion into state of the art facilities in the last 10 years alone.

This has been an utterly shameful decline. A proud, efficient and exceptional school system has been turned into a money-gobbling morass. It's been lead by people who've fostered a long term culture of cheating and deception in order to prop themselves up. It graduates only half its students. The board is so dysfunctional that they've been placed on probation by the accrediting agency and are subject to intervention by the Governor.

There are many devoted and skilled educators in APS, many bright and eager students, and many parents and citizens who've knocked themselves out to make this system work. And there are some superb schools.

But any way you cut it, the management of APS has been an ongoing, unmitigated disaster.

Hall probably cheated her way through school as well. How pathetic is she! That's why she stepped down because she knew what was going on.

Well said, I couldn't agree more
