But Kemp Says We Have Great Schools

And if you believe a word that guy says, you have a gullibility problem, my friend.

Here’s why:

To say that, the head of the school systems in Georgia has to do some World Poker Tour card shark tactics with the numbers. Georgia Schools ARE better, but only if you compare them year to year with Georgia schools. How is that bad, you ask? Well, it isn’t if you compare our schools to, oh, say, Louisiana, Arkansas, or West Virginia. They have lower tax bases, higher rates of poverty, and higher minorities. The schools reflect that. But if you compare Georgia to California, New York, Maryland, or Massachusetts, we look like utter garbage.

Georgia’s NATIONAL ranking is 30th overall. That’s 30 out of 50. Not 30%. That’s really crappy. We do have some outstanding schools in our state, don’t get me wrong. But you have to pay to get your children in them. (Which is another issue I want to address, but not now.)


Because they do not want the parents of Georgia children to know how badly the education system of Georgia schools has gotten. If the parents got a whiff of that, then they would know that all the money that has been diverted over the years by Governors Sonny Perdue and Nathan Deal into their own pockets and that of their cronies in the name of ‘budget cutting’ CHEATED their children enormously. And it continues to cheat children today. So far, we have had 20 years of budget cutting and our schools took tremendous hits. It shows. The numbers do not lie. Kemp and Woods know that.

But do you think for an instant that our Senator would have the nerve to research this and bring it to your attention? Oh, no. Your children’s education is not important to him because he sent his children to private schools and will send his youngest to a private school. It doesn’t matter to him.

I want to see the children who go to PUBLIC SCHOOLS get quality educations. You might have noticed that Republicans want to privatize education so they control it and make big money on it. That’s what Betsy DeVos was trying to do. That’s why they are trying to take over our school boards. We cannot allow this. Taxpayer money belongs to the public schools, and taxpayers, all of us, deserve to have school boards elected by the people controlling our schools, not soccer moms and blown-out knee dads with C/D averages.

Help me get to the Senate so I can work for your children and grandchildren to have the education they need and deserve. Georgia’s future is dependent on it. Our district needs this to attract more businesses. We MUST do better.

Live in west central GA with 5 horses, 2 dachshunds, 3 cats. Life is complicated. Especially when you are an older female living in rural Georgia and the system is definitely rigged against you. God, I've learned to appreciate at least something of what minorities go through. White men are such boar hogs.
