  David Crawford for School Board at Large Crawford on the Issues:

Our school board is responsible for overseeing the education of our children – yet a majority of the current board shifted power and responsibility to the superintendent and arrogantly ignores the desires of parents, teachers, and taxpayers. I don’t think there is any doubt that we need fresh leadership on the school board.

Leadership :Good leadership means more than having a direction to go in. That direction must be rooted in the people that make up our County. First, we must have effective communication and community involvement during the decision making process. The school system affects everyone in this County. I honestly believe that there are enough smart people in our schools, governments, businesses, local colleges, etc. to solve our toughest challenges. Second, we must be accessible to our citizens. We are their elected advocates. We should listen to and represent our constituents very well.

School Calendars :Our kids go to school 180 days or two 90-day semesters. If you start school in mid-August and simply take the traditional holidays, you can finish the semester just before Christmas. I think this makes sense. An earlier start date chips away at a family’s summer, and a later start creates an unnatural carry-over of the first semester into January. I do not support the concept of year-round school that our former superintendent promoted.

Taxes :I do not believe that that the school board should raise taxes to balance the budget now or in the future. I do believe that SPLOST is essential and a fairer way to raise revenue. As long as our county continues to grow, we must continue to add new schools and renovate our existing ones. Our kids deserve a healthy learning environment.

  1. Mr. Crawford,

    I’m afraid that you might not understand some of this state’s laws.

    1. There is a state law that says that school cannot start earlier than August 25 and must end by June 10. Your idea of starting school in mid-August cannot happen unless the law changes.

    2. The School Board CANNOT raise taxes. They have no taxing authority.

    I think I know who I’ll be supporting in this election.

  2. David’s ideas sound good to you, Eric? Too bad he lifted them without attribution from someone else’s web site.

  3. Oops!

    I’ve not yet met Mr. Crawford and I’m not criticizing him. You, the voters, will make the decision on who will best serve our children. I just put what he had to say out there, I report, you decide 🙂

    There’s a candidate forum on April 15 at Northern Guilford H.S., and let’s lay all the issues on the table then.

  4. I get where you are coming from, Erik, and there is no way you could have known before writing your post, but education and plagiarism don’t go together.

  5. Roch,

    Thanks for sharing that tidbit with the rest of us. I agree with you. School board members must set the example for the students and David Crawford just received OSS for his action.

  6. OSS–that’s just a little slap on the wrist and back to class in this county!
