Tara, the hypocrisy goes beyond black & white. You didn't report the fact that the black student in question was the daughter of a high ranking CCSD official!! This is CCSD officials attacking a CCSD student to send a message of, "Don't mess with my kid - I work at 75 Calhoun!" The fact that high ranking CCSD officials believe they can abuse their position means they should not be working for OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT. It is not only hypocritical of CCSD it is a blatant abuse of power. Please write a follow-up story on the additional law suits. Lets root this thing out.
Way to go Christophe and Carly. If anyone hasn't been to the new store yet, you must stop by 90 Society and check it out. It is truly amazing and will soon be a Charleston favorite!!
Clay, you are right on the money in your closing remark that, "Each of us must hold Dr. Nancy McGinley, the school board, faculty and staff accountable if we are to be part of the solution and not simply adding to the problem."
Though I'm not sure what problem you are referring to, I do know that there are plenty of them at the Charleston County School of the Arts. Principal James Reinhart has completely lost the confidence of his staff and students through a continuing string of bad decisions and an inconsistent yet authoritarian style. A large number of staff have signed a petition requesting his removal. Parents are repeating the calls for his removal as well.
It is time for Charleston County Schools to answer the calls of staff and parents and remove this "dead man walking" that has tarnished the reputation of the School of the Arts and install someone who cares about students more than holding on to his precious job at any cost.
