Clayton County students to learn if they are screwed this Thursday

It’s Zero Hour, folks.

On Wednesday night, the 40-member national Accreditation Commission will vote on Clayton’s accreditation, SACS spokeswoman Jennifer Oliver said Monday.

SACS will announce the results at 1 p.m. Thursday at a media-only news conference. Clayton school officials will be notified shortly before the news conference, Oliver said.

    With Kathy Cox handing out waivers like pizza coupons for students failing CRCT math and social science last year you would think Clayton may get a break. I am not saying they deserve it just pointing out the issue.

    Who cares if they’re accredited? And since when did high schools get accredited? Why don’t schools just focus on teaching kids? And let the colleges determine if the applicant is “up to speed”? Frankly I’ve never heard of the National Accreditation Commission. How long has it been in existence?

    This is getting to be a hot topic about passing out coupons.

    According to our county commission website, a retired principal in our school system who has been a commissioner since 1990, earned her Ph.D degree(s) from what has been described as a mail order fraud program.

    I asked the question on my blog back on August 17th but not one person replied.

    The webpage says Dr. Thomas graduated with a Ph.D. in Psychology/Educational Administration from the University of North America

    Are there any academics here who can shed a little light on what it takes to obtain a dual degree as this title suggests?

    I blogged on it here

    I wonder how long it will take for the page to be updated?

    Are we expected to believe “Dr. Thomas’ family are lifelong members of FairLawn Baptist Church and First Bryan Baptist Church”.

    What are we to believe?
