With that being said, I must address this story. For, as you can see here, it becomes that much more notorious (see the right-hand sidebar – this is a daily publication sent to members of the Tennessee Bar Association).
I have said it before, and will maintain that we must address the issues facing our schools. We must, because internally or externally, they will be solved by others. And, it is not just a federal investigation. We can continue to be concerned with how each of our schools performs with regard to state and federal standard.
Again, I will continue to state that there is not a silver bullet solution, so we must continue to leave all options on the table as we move forward.
It is my hope that the formation of the “Study Committee for Review and Recommendation of Educational Initiatives in the Springfield School Cluster” will go a long way to address these issues.
What this growing concerns illustrates to me is that the finger-pointing must cease and the sectionalism throughout the communities must cease.
Like it or not, this is a Robertson County issue.
Internally or Externally, something must be done, and that thing will affect the entirety of Robertson County.
