Why We Need Change

Our schools are great. So many members of our One Team are passionate educators and employees and dedicated to our shared cause. There are, however, more than a few areas that need immediate attention. I’m running to clean up our act at every level so our school district can focus on the real issues of maximizing our students’ educational experience while also maximizing stakeholder communication and satisfaction.

Below is a (sadly) non-exhaustive list of the concerning actions I’ve observed from our current Board of Education majority and certain members of the CCSD leadership. I think you’ll agree that, while there is so much to be proud of with our school system, actions and issues like these do not represent or serve Cobb, warrant a great deal of concern, and a dire need for new leadership.
