“Grier-isms”

Welcome to this installment of “Grier-isms,” where we will feature and highlight the not-so-witty, half-cocked, and the just-plain-unreal and downright insensitive comments of our illustrious superintendent of schools, Terrence Grier.

You already saw the example of Grier’s comments made to Kiser Middle School principal Sharon McCants, telling her that she was inheriting a staff who doesn’t think that black children can learn.

Accusatory. Slanderous. Outrageous. Insulting. Borderline-racist.

Wait, there’s more. Today’s News & Record’s “Inside Scoop” in discussing CoCo Skip Alston’s message to Grier and Co. last week that if the proposed school bond makes it to the ballot and doesn’t pass, they should strongly consider certificates of participation. “Don’t leave it up to voters to fund your most dire construction projects,” he said.

He reminded them a second time. After reminding them a third time, Grier exclaimed, “We heard you.”

Not the tone and language I would be using if I was preparing to approach the CoCo’s for money (and budget time is at hand).

Add arrogant to the above list.

E.C. 🙂
