TEASER: Moore County Schools (Version 2)

Friction on the Moore County Board of Education has surfaced on several issues since three new members joined the seven-member board in December.

So while there were no policies to review or expenditures to discuss during a meeting last Tuesday, a review of the board’s internal code of cooperation and operating procedures served to air some of the sore points first created in what Robert Levy, one of the new board members, termed a “very, very intense campaign.”

Reality is, past Boards have been little more than a rubber stamp for the superintendent and a funnel for massive taxpayer gifts to the government school industry. See our new gold-plated schools, built despite their poor academic performance, for evidence. Taxpayers want results, not Pollyanna, PC Goody-Goody sweet talk. The three new members are doing what voters expected, ask tough questions and increase the value we’re getting for the money our government extorts today to prop up a failed school system with a declining enrollment.
