Though we just did a survey a few weeks ago, because of the way things are happening in Montgomery, we need your input again. And ASAP.
Unfortunately Governor Kay Ivey is now playing politics with our children. Three weeks ago she said she did not know enough about the performance of state school chief Mike Sentance to join state board members in evaluating him. (By virtue of her office, she is president of the state board.)
However, she issued a statement on August 10 supporting Sentance and urging the board to give him more time.
Since it is highly unlikely that in that short time span she became intimately familiar with Sentance’s record, it is obvious that her August 10 statement was motivated more by politics than a real concern for public school students. This is sad, especially considering that she was once a teacher.
What is your response to the governor’s action?
As always, responses are anonymous. The instrument we use, Survey Monkey, makes sure of that. Also you should know that Survey Monkey only accepts ONE response from individual computers.
