Another “potential” ad

 She still doesn’t get it.

The image “http://tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:me99hGzh_e10ZM:http://www.theyoungdemocrats.com/kearns1.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. Dorothy “Dot” Kearns, in her own words…in a Voices of San Diego.org article on January 25, 2008:

Kearns [who describes Guilford County Schools right after the merger as  “the ethos of slavery”] lauded the move [of High Point’s reassignment/redistricting/busing plan], saying it equalized opportunities for Guilford County kids, and drew together the far-flung, segregated district.

The costs — moving kids — were far outweighed by the gains, she said.

“It was certainly understandable that people who lived closer to an outlying school were more comfortable there,” Kearns said. “But it was more a matter of … resistance to the change in the school population.”

The image “https://i1.wp.com/www.gcsnc.com/boe/images/kearns1_b.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. Kearns will not admit that the scheme failed.

The image “https://i1.wp.com/www.gcsnc.com/boe/images/kearns1_b.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. Kearns will not admit that pouring extra resources into ALL of High Point’s neighborhood schools would have been better and would have made more sense in the long run than cross-town busing.

The image “https://i1.wp.com/www.gcsnc.com/boe/images/kearns1_b.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.  Kearns will not admit that many neighborhoods are built around schools, which tend to be anchors for residential development. As a real estate agent, she should know that.

The image “https://i1.wp.com/www.gcsnc.com/boe/images/kearns1_b.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. Kearns will not admit that as a result of the failed busing scheme, many High Point schools are now treated like “stepchildren” to the rest of Guilford County’s schools.

The image “https://i1.wp.com/www.gcsnc.com/boe/images/kearns1_b.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. Kearns will not admit that it would have been better for her, as a previous member of the former High Point City Schools Board (and former chair of the Guilford County Board of Commissioners), to lobby for new schools to be built in High Point before the merger in the early 1990s.

The image “https://i1.wp.com/www.gcsnc.com/boe/images/kearns1_b.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. Dot Kearns. Still wrong on redistricting. Wrong for our school board. Wrong for Guilford County’s children.

I’m E.C. Huey, your 2008 candidate for the Guilford County Board of Education’s at-large seat, and I approved this message because our schools are a mess, and it’s time to fix the mess downtown.

Thank you for your support.

  1. Dot won’t admit this either:

    I, and plenty more like me, withdrew our children from Guilford county schools because we refused for them to be treated like lab rats. We refused for them to be subjected to her selfish acts to accomplish one thing–and it was NEVER about helping High Point’s children. It was too do ONE thing and ONE thing only—resurect her alma-mater and “crown jewel” of High Point–Central High.

    And she won’t admit that Andrews is still the same (or worse) off than it was four years ago when she brought her lottery circus to town.

    And she won’t admit that she doesn’t know a thing about education–that she, like Deena Hayes, thinks the school board is a social engineering platform.

    Yes, I agree EC, there’s a lot that Dotty won’t admit too. It’s time to get her outta here….

  2. Let’s get out the scorecards:

    marti: gone
    Susie: gone
    Grier: soon to be gone

    Who’s next?
    Kearns: (hopefully) soon to be gone
    Cookie: (hopefully) soon to be gone
    Walt: (hopefully) soon to be gone
    ***********************
    2010:
    Deena: (hopefully) soon to be gone
    Alan D.: (hopefully) soon to be gone

  3. Simply unbelievable, E.C.

    Keep on the alert……..

  4. ““It was certainly understandable that people who lived closer to an outlying school were more comfortable there,” Kearns said. “But it was more a matter of … resistance to the change in the school population.”

    The only way that I can read that is that she is calling the people of North High Point….racists. Of course, that is the campaign that was waged against the opposition of those people against their children being bused across High Point without their consent. There were children of families that lived across the street from Southwest that had their children bused to Central. If they opposed that, they were called racists, because they didn’t want their children going to school with black children. It was an ugly time in this county for some families. Some of them are no longer residents of this county.

    No Dot, it was a matter of Dot Kearns wanting to use North High Point kids for her social engineering project, because she had the power of reassignment.

  5. I’m sure Cookie is halfway out the door now. She won’t know what to do without Grier. He was her fearless leader. She didn’t make a move if she knew it would not please her master Terry. Yep, she won’t make it without him. Maybe she’ll just go with him.

  6. Been Grier Ended, I would love to see ALL parents remove their kids from these schools until our demands for a COMPITENT school board and leaders are met!

    I said this once on an N&R board and they deleted it lol.

    HOWEVER, if you remove your kids, get an attorney and file suit against the district for creating a dangerous learning environment for your children. It’s scary in this district and that’s an understatement.

    We are allowing this to happen by leaving our kids in these gang infested nests from hell. And the gang infested nests have been created by this school board and Terry Grier.

    I don’t care who Grier has had to “answer to” the reality is, he casted his disgusting manipulative spell, calls himself a “consultant” and they will listen to him, not tell him how it is.

    I can’t see a thing that any school district anywhere on earth would want. He’s a manipulator and has taught the rest how to do the same.

    If we dig deep enough, we’ll soon find that this is all about the money that each of them were able to acquire. You scratch my bank account and I’ll scratch yours. That’s the truth of all of this.

    As we continue to talk among ourselves, more and more will be realized. The filth and stinch that emanates from this board and Terry Grier is frightening to say the least.

    If we want to make a difference we need to put these idiots under a powerful microscope and find out just how aggressive the cancer really is.

    Once we find out what the truth is, perhaps the families in GCS can actually do what needs to be done. This is no different than any other political body.
    I guess their problem is, they just aren’t that powerful.

    They owe our children a proper and safe education. If they’ve taken that from your child, they owe you what it’s costed you and your children.

    Don’t continue to allow it to happen. Make a difference, speak up, investigate, scream from the roof tops!

    And by all means, whatever you learn send it to San Diego for review.

    Just because our community has been horribly affected by these jerks, doesn’t mean that it goes away if he creates the same there. Terry Grier needs to be stopped on every level.

    Universal law will never allow him to continue without payment due, it’s honestly what keeps me together with all of this. He’ll pay for it, but just maybe we’re supposed to be a part of stopping these people.

    So let’s do that if we can.

  7. A couple of questions to ask yourselves. Who, what specific groups of people does Terry Grier start each job, courting?

    I would think alot could be noted by researching this.

  8. User – yes – I remember that article about Grier and how he “courts” folks while he’s interviewing…..

  9. User,

    Here is the answer to your question from an individual who was a board member in one of his previous stops as superintendent. Now see if you can put names to those positions of power.

    “Terry Grier’s method of operation is no mystery, but the well known principle of divide and conquer. When he first arrives he ingratiates himself with those in a position of power, usually the board chairman, newspaper editor, banker, or political figure and he’s not above distributing jobs or other favors to achieve favorable results. This is necessary food for his tremendous ego.”

  10. Friend, I had not seen any article stating such, it, to me, is simply obvious. Take a gander at the first picture taken of him in San Diego.

    Stormy, thank you for that. Exactly the truth as far as I can see.

    I can’t understand how anyone sees charm in the worm. He’s nothing more than a manipulative creepy old man with an agenda. He’s a predator on innocent children and families who are at the mercy of his manipulations.

    It makes sense to me that he never returns calls or meets with real people and parents who have concerns, he would never be able to look them in the eye.

    He’s a creepy, beaty eye’d little worm. He will one day fear what he’s created in different places in the country.

    I don’t believe this man is remotely capable of loving anything more than money and materialism. The hearts of families all over this district have been harmed, the children are being ruined along with their educations. Families are suffering today and who knows how long it will take to heal, and THAT IS IF the board is ALLOWED by US to continue on the same path. We need to put an end to the gravy train for the idiot toops.

    He knows, he doesn’t care. It makes me ill when he says that “these children are our children”. I don’t want him to be any part of my life or have any power over what happens with my children. Or any of my generations to come.

    My children never have or ever will be HIS children. Like he has EVER shown an ounce of interest in my children? HA! And he doesn’t want to be a part of their lives or any child’s life unless it makes him a crap load of money, then he doesn’t even have it in him to thank them for all they have done for him by being a part of the army of warm bodies that bring him the funding that pays his six figure salary. He sure as hell hasn’t done anything for them but take them to the cleaners.

    Innocent children in need of education. That is what Terry Grier has used to make his living. He’s so blatant, he doesn’t even care how anyone sees him or feels about what he’s done. Once he’s done and people begin to figure him out and stop sitting in silence, he runs like a scared snake. And he’ll use any of us to get where he needs to go.

    Even the board members were his stepping stones. I’ll still cite them for allowing it. How is it that no one ever saw what he’s been up to?

    Just because he’s preparing to slither off to San Diego, doesn’t mean that I will ever stop letting people know who he really is. The more that people continue to warn people each place he goes, the more that those who employee him will become a little more suspicious. Somewhere along the line someone who can actually do something about him will open stand up and speak loudly, as they did in Sacramento.

    I would still like to know if any of his children ever went to school in the public schools in any of the districts he was a superintendent in? If he cared about these places, he should be confident enough to send his own kids to the schools he has had superintendency.

    That in itself would speak volumes if I were hiring such an idiot.

  11. User,

    “Even the board members were his stepping stones. I’ll still cite them for allowing it. How is it that no one ever saw what he’s been up to?”

    Herein lies the answer to your question:

    “Terry Grier’s method of operation is no mystery, but the well known principle of divide and conquer. When he first arrives he ingratiates himself with those in a position of power, usually the board chairman, newspaper editor, banker, or political figure and he’s not above distributing jobs or other favors to achieve favorable results. This is necessary food for his tremendous ego.”

  12. I know stormy, I know.

    I can see that, I know we all can, but how to stop him from doing it again? It brings me to tears when I realize what my kids have been through. I should have never come to this place.

    It brings me to tears to think that he will have another opportunity to do this to more children. Bastard.

    But it’s not all just him. I have a real hard time believing that not ONE BOARD MEMBER could see through it, and I CERATAINLY don’t believe that they haven’t heard from at the very least HUNDREDS of parents regarding this worm.

    It’s not all just the Grande Worm, it’s the worm followers as well. The Grande Worm creators. THEY TOO were getting pay off. No one allows this sort of thing without pay off whatever that was for each of them individually.

    Not that it matters, it looks to me like the old beaty eye’d worm is planning a retirement from San Diego.

    I would love nothing more than to see him fall and have no where else to turn for employment. I would love to see this worm have to live off of his savings for the rest of his disgusting life, like so many of us have to do to simply get by while paying his salary. A salary he FAR from earns.

    He’s a worm.
