Today's News Sentinel Story on the Schools Central Office

In today's Knoxville News Sentinel is this article about other school districts and their reaction to the staffing of central office. What I found interesting is that every person interviewed from other areas, whether they be central office administrators or school board members they all echoed the same thing, communicate what you are doing. The problem this year in Knox County is the message that two school board members have said publicly is "you point us to the waste and what you would do to replace that activity". That is not the right approach, if you want my tax money from my County Mayor and County Commissioners. It is called checks and balance.

"you point us to the waste and what you would do to replace that activity".

It's not MY job as a taxpayer to provide oversight and find waste.

That's the school board's job.

But that quote is simply an admission that the board either doesn't know what its job is...or doesn't care to do it.

And right now, McIntyre and central office believe the school board is another public relations staff for them.

Can't wait for school board elections.

You have to read KnoxViews to see what a liar Scott Barker of the News Sentinel is.


The News Sentinel is part of the coverup on the false school board budget. They are trying to fool people that the $35 million dollars is only for five years. It is every year forever. This is worse than Black Wednesday.

But this is even more amazing:


These astroturfers have a website you should see:

Guess who owns the Domain?

Knoxville Chamber
17 Market Square #201
Knoxville, Tennessee 37902
United States

So the Sentinel is part of Support Our Schools and they are covering up the $140 million dollars the school board hid?

Only in Knoxville. We are the new Memphis.
