Don't Just Take Our Word For It
The information that we have posted on this blog probably seems unbelievable to at least some of you. Judging from many of the comments, though, many others out there are not surprised. Either way, you have the right, as citizens, to know for yourself first-hand. In fact, that right is spelled out in the Georgia Open Records Law. The Attorney General has a wonderful website dedicated to the details of this law (http://www.state.ga.us/ago/open_govt.html).
Using that as your guide, exercise your rights as citizens to request information from GCPS yourself. If you want, look at some of the documents we have posted and ask for them specifically. Or ask for other information, whatever you have concerns about. All you need to do is to put your request(s) in writing, being sure to be very specific and clear about the information you are seeking.
Remember; GCPS is spending YOUR money, educationg YOUR children, and running YOUR schools. You have every right to know how, and how well, they are doing. Once you have the information in-hand, then judge for yourself. Take us (the bloggers) out of the equation and then see what the message is.
