Re: “Charleston Water System CEO plans to improve ‘perceptions’ of deal with private company

Hi Kin,

Since you are obviously a diligent comment reader, let me add my voice to those who don't appreciate CWS shilling for shysters in our water bills, nor do I appreciate your transparent attempts to paper over these concerns. I'm glad someone raised this issue. It deserves more than your brush off.

Re: “Was ousted School District Superintendent Nancy McGinley a saint, a despot, or a victim?

Alexandre Mouravskiy...my position on this is not very clear in this article. The quote refers to the practice of setting goals that were absurdly unrealistic from the get-go, and then using them to justify a series of radical, counterproductive strategies that have failed repeatedly in decades of trials. Achievable goals coupled with professional autonomy to implement proven strategies? Sounds brilliant. Any interest in becoming our next Supt? Poorly supported personal slights are a bygone.

Re: “Zais' school deregulation proposal is dead in the water

On the other hand, I have eaten the lunch of quite a few demented Libertarians since then.

"The Blob"?

Let's get something straight: I wear Size 38 pants, just one size bigger than high school, and there has been ALOT of fried cheese between here and there.

Re: “EdFirstSC takes on Zais' plan for evaluating teachers

Critics of SC public schools ridicule the academic ranking of our students among the 50 states.

Is it funny that we have the 6th highest rate of child poverty in the nation, or that 27% of our children have been without food in the last year?

Children in poverty face obstacles to academic success that the rest of us can't even imagine.

They need our full support to achieve their potential and break the cycle of economic despair.

If test scores meant that a teacher was good or bad at their job, I'd support their responsible use.

I understand why people expect that they would mean that. The simple fact is that they don't.

Here's a link for anyone who's interested in why not: http://www.epi.org/publication/bp278/

As a side note, my ironing is very iffy. If you saw the picture in the print edition, you also know that my pants don't fit right, and I have a tendency to stand awkwardly. I'm told that I have reasonably good manners, and that means more to me.
