By Dr. John Trotter
was in attendance when Ron Ramsey (state senator and DeKalb County
administrator in charge of grievances) illegally shut down a grievance when a teacher from Clarkston
High School was prepared to testify about illegal cheating, and he was also prepared to call in
witnesses. I believe that I have an opportunity to meet with TV media personnel to air a story about this
matter. One particular station expressed great interest in the story. I will be contacting
this TV station shortly. I have been out of the country and quite busy lately. I hope
that we can find an opportune time whereby we can fit this story in our respective schedules to shed more light on just how
corrupt the Crawford Lewis administration is in DeKalb County.
If the DeKalb County Board of Education doesn't get rid of Crawford Lewis who is
a joke of a superintendent, then the entire school board needs to be thrown out of office. I was very disappointed
that Senator Ronald Ramsey apparently felt the need to engage in a cover-up for the Crawford Lewis
administration. I have otherwise found Mr. Ramsey to be a quite congenial and honorable
chap. I see, however, that he has chosen to be a "company man." Having a secure
salary as an "employee" must seem more appetizing now to him than slaying the dragon each week as an independent
lawyer. The economically hard times sometimes makes easy "cowards." Coach
Vince Lombardi often stated that "fatigue makes cowards of us all." I hope that Senator
Ramsey will be able to re-capture his manhood in the near future.
Of course, MACE did not just allow this illegal shutting
down of the grievance. We immediately staged several pickets (which were covered by the Channel
11 with Keith Whitney) among other things. When the administrative
weasels do bad things, you have to spank them in public and embarrass them. Yes, MACE
has been heralding the bad news of possible widespread and systematic cheating in the DeKalb County School
System for some time now. The egregious cheating at DeKalb's
School is, I am afraid, just the tip of the iceberg in DeKalb. MACE
was the lone wolf in the wilderness talking openly about cheating in DeKalb. GAE
and PAGE have been mute on this issue to this very day. Perhaps the cheating administrators
were members of these organizations. We know that they are not members of MACE because
MACE does not allow administrators or supervisors to join MACE.
Stay tuned for more revelations
in DeKalb. This year ought to be a very revealing and unraveling year for the Crawford
Lewis administration. As Dr. King stated, a lie cannot live forever. ©
