I am so tired of listening to you people, 95% of what I hear come from snooty ass people who only listen to what other say, or what the media portrays you never lived in this city, you never went to any CMS school, you never visited a CMS School. Have you read the school performance report or do you even know what that is. I went to elementary, middle, high school and college in this great city, so by going to a CMS does that make me a lesser educated person

I have watched people leave the inner city schools and move to the burbs and only complain b/c their kids have to be bused, and the schools are over crowed, that are your own damn fault. CMS never planned for growth as large as this, no one would have ever thought we would have 3 of the top 15 banks in charlotte, and become a financial heaven in the south. True it was poor planning on behalf of the former school board, but that never changed the way teachers taught, and gave their time.

But because you people wanted to move, you wanted the school system to cater to your needs, you complained about busing, segregation and look where it got you, to talk dirty about CMS. Do you honestly believe that Huntersville, Davidson, Union schools are better...PLEASE the only thing that you have is smaller class rooms and still you dumb parents won't even support your school, you won't take a day off to sit in your Childs classroom, won't volunteer your time, and all you do is complain and complain.

You complained about the inner city schools, what do you expect when teachers have the right of choice to choose which school they want to teach at, that's right the quality of leadership goes down, it wasn't long ago the inner city schools where out performing the burbs schools, south meck, north meck, Olympic... those schools had the lowest test scores ever...

But because you notice that property taxes where cheaper you packed and moved your ungrateful dumb kids to that burbs and complained that they weren't getting the same resources as the inner city..

To make peace the former school board built you burb people schools and gave teachers the opportunity to teach where they wanted. I am so glad that Gorman is doing what he is doing, moving those teachers and principals and those leadership quality away putting them where it is needed, and to be honest more crime is coming from the burbs then the inner city schools..

Do us all a favor spend some time with your kids, know there friends, who they hang out with, stop trying to be the buddy to your child, hell if you don't like it send your child to a private school. Do some homework on the neighborhoods first.

I hear ya! But MrNice must have other things going on in his life if he's this frustrated, I kinda feel sorry for him - though that doesn't excuse his rudeness. His thoughts would have actually carried more weight with people, or at least given them something to think about, if he had made them without attacking anyone or being rude.

I just read Mrnice's comments and wondered why a person with an obvious lack of grammical and proof-reading skills would even embrass himself with this poorly written diatribe. Yes! I' moving to Union Co. I guess you can lump me in with the other snotty people. Both of my sons attend private school now (Loyola Blakefield). I'm leaving Baltimore because of the high housing prices and the cost of private school. Baltimore City has the worst school district in Maryland. Union County was selected by the ratings I saw regarding their stellar schools. If you are a testment to the educational abilities of CMS, I'm glad too have selected Union County.

He does make some valid points. Hopefully the surrounding counties can see what Meck had to do or is doing.

I mean look at all the people just from this board that are moving to Union County the biggest influx seems to be heading there. Plus the ones that do not know about this board.

There is an interesting article in the Huntersville Herald (that I need to read).
