Thank you, Thank you!!!! I am tired of everyone assuming that every child at AHES is born with a golden spoon in their mouth. I too had a child at AHES and I can assure you we struggle to pay our bills like many other families at that school. We are also your average hard working family who wanted a good education for our child. I too worked with Moore County School for many years and believe in this county and the dedication of many teacher throughout the county.
However, we chose AHES and went through the proper procedure and our child was approved to attend AHES. Which meant I had to get up earlier and meet someone who helped me transport my child to AHES because I worked at another school. I also paid this person for gas and it was well worth the money which at times was hard but it was a sacrifice I was willing to make.
I guess I am wondering if this was happening to other school such as the school that (school_teacher) works at would they want their parents to fight for their doors to stay open. Closing this school is NOT going to save jobs because it is clear JOBS are going to be cut just look at the proposed budget. Not to mention most teachers at AHES are tenure teacher and according to NCAE they need to be reassigned if their school closes.
Also, to (school_teacher) you tell me how you would feel if you got a connect ed call letting you know that your school is closing. Would you be supporting Purser then???? Also, when Dr. Purser came to your school she said that you would have research your own employment and interview with those principals. I can't imagine that you would want to be treated that way nor would you want your fellow teachers at AHES but the fact is they WERE!!!!!
I guess my biggest question is why aren't teachers and community questioning how top heavy we are at the central office level beside those who are supporting SAVE AHES!!! I would like for them to feel the burn and not the teachers or students!!!!
