Board makes the right call…for now

The GCS board made the right call last night not to restrict access to community groups using GCS facilities and to seek additional public comment on this and the distribution of literature by outside groups to students.

Not to worry, Board, this campaign will make a statement shortly.

 Darlene Garrett, once again, had it right on target, this via today’s High Point Enterprise:

“I think the public schools are just that, they are public … taxpayers pay for them and they have the right to use them,” board member Dar­lene Garrett said. “There is this feeling that they (schools) are not owned by the public … I have a problem with that.”
Community members had worried the proposed policy would close school doors to certain organizations.

Here’s the link to the companion story in the News & Record.

E.C. 🙂
