It's obvious why Dr. Johnson wants an early contract renewal. His destruction of the truth can't hold up another two years. When someone who cares and has more clout than we lowly taxpayers looks at the real results touted by Dr. Johnson, they will see that the emperor has no clothes.
We no longer test our students across the board with well respected testing companies because most students and schools fail miserably. The current testing program is meaningless as it is written and administrated by people who stand to gain the most financially. The increase in success, waving the five banner flags is only possible because the "expectation of success" has been lowered to meet the reality of failure.
There is no other reason to void the existing contract and award a contract in excess of a million dollars for four years while so many taxpayers are suffering across the county.
If you want to see the real results of the testing result shuffle, let the contract in place stay in place. What have you got to lose? Except the respect of those who know what's really going on in this school system.

I am in full agreement with Mr. Harry Presley. What he had to say was well said, and I need not add anything.
I did call a few on the School Board and only one agreed with me when casting the vote.
I give praise to Mrs. Thurman for standing up for the taxpayers. Mrs. Thurman, we appreciate your concern and effort in all you do when it comes to voting on our behalf.
Our internet gave a 84% "against" the passing of the bill while only 16% "were for." I feel it speaks for how the taxpayer really feels.
