Rhino Reports Real Story on S.E. H.S. principal

https://i2.wp.com/www.gcsnc.com/sehs/SEHigh.jpg This week’s Rhino Times (on racks now) reports that former Southeast Guilford H.S. principal Keith Kremer submitted his resignation effective at the conclusion of this academic year. Kremer was recently reassigned from the school following reports that he sent out a “Connect-Ed” automated phone message to parents to support the recent Jena Six rally.

An excerpt from the article:

Kremer sent out a Connect-Ed that stated that Thursday, Sept. 20 had been designated Black Thursday, and “people are asked to wear black to demonstrate their support for three [sic] students in Jena, Louisiana.” The message told parents the decision came from the central office and that students would be allowed to wear black that day even if they attended schools that required uniforms, currently known as a standard mode of dress (SMOD).

Parents were outraged that the school would make such a one-sided political statement about the event.

In addition, academics at Southeast have taken a steep dive from last year, with approximately 60 percent of students passing state tests, compared to more than 70 percent in 2005-2006. Students at Southeast have scored in the mid-70s during most of the time Kremer has been principal at the school.

Wow. Let’s hope things can begin to turnaround down there at Southeast.

E.C. 🙂
