Board Members Who Don't Listen To Their Constituents
Cobb School Calendar
In February 2011, the Cobb County School Board asked the parents and
teachers on which school calendar should be used for the 2011-12 school
year. The option was a balanced calendar introduced in the 2010-11 school year or the traditional calendar used in the past. The balanced calendar was originally supposed to have a 3-year trial period which at this point hadn't even completed its first year. Over 72% of the responses were to keep the balanced calendar in place. The four school board members below refused to listen to their constituents and voted against the balanced calendar.
