Welcome to DeKalb School Watch Two!

Welcome! We are so happy that you clicked over to our new home!

DeKalb School Watch was hosted by Blogger for over two years and will remain ‘live’ at its original site in its original form. All of the over 900 postings, photos and links will be active, searchable and readable on the internet in perpetuity. Feel free to click back to our original home at any time to check old stories, research the past or follow-up on a new posting found here.

Our post contributors will no longer be identified by name or moniker as all postings will simply be posted by the “DeKalb School Watch” administrator. All comments will be monitored and although you can remain anonymous, you will need to choose some kind of moniker to help us keep track of who is ‘speaking’ to whom. To submit an item for front-page posting, send a completed, written piece, from 300-700 words in an email to: dekalbschoolwatch@gmail.com

We are excited! Our new home will be easier for our new administrators to manage and the WordPress platform offers us more flexibility and space for file storage.

Even though we have a new look and some additional new leadership, the goal will remain exactly the same: Hosting a dialogue among parents, educators and community members focused on improving our schools and providing a quality, equitable education for each of our nearly 100,000 students.

    I’m happy you joined up with WordPress! Congratualtions on a beautiful new home! I’d like to suggest you look at a little larger or bolder font for the main body of your posts. The new font is a bit small and light to read. Using wordpress will certainly make the site more user friendly and opens up new avenues for picture and video posting. Way to go Cere! Thanks for all you do!

    We have spoken many times about this problem, and I am happy to see pictures to back it up. SO SAD to see thos pictures, though. Incidentally, before Medlock was leased to ICS, the DCSS crews came by and began tho “clear-cut” the grounds, removing landscape plantings, and even a tree that was planted as a memorial to a student. So it looks as if, when it comes to grounds, they either remove everything or let it go completely.

    Nothing has changed about the DeKalb School Watch blog and its mission except for the location of the blog. The same people are still volunteering their time for the blog. Please join us! We DO NOT work for DCSS!

    Please continue to read and comment! Articles are welcomed!

    It takes a committed community to rout out the pervasive, ingrained corruption and return decency to the DeKalb County School System.

    Make no mistake — we are up against desperate people. They have NO interest in educating children. Their single interest is keeping the gravy train running for friends-and-family. They will kick and scream and fight to maintain status quo.

    We cannot let them win or DeKalb County will become another East St. Louis. [http://stlouis.cbslocal.com/2011/08/11/feds-called-in-to-curb-eastside-crime/]

    Thank you Thank you for increasing the font, my eyeballs feel better now!

  6. bettyandveronica says:

    Increased font size is better but now the color of the “ink” is grey not black. All words must be bold or we can’t see it against the white. No, It’s not my monitor, it works just fine. I would love to continue to read this blog, but it is very hard to do so I miss the old format. But I appreciate you taking the time to do it!

  7. worried_about_the_numbers says:

    I have to second bettyandveronica. Not only is the lettering grey, the font is breaking up on my screen, for example, the letter O appears as ( ). I do not have that problem on the old site, so it’s you, not I. Please fix it. Otherwise, cudos for all you do

    I like the new look. Very snappy. I find that WordPress is a very blogger-friendly format. Is it O. K. to just use my real name instead of choosing a moniker? I am just more comfortable using my name. If I say something, I ain’t gonna be hiding. Saude! John Trotter (coming to you from, I suppose, The Georgia Citizen).

  9. Yes, of course you may use your real name. We have a number of participants who prefer to use their real name. Happy to have you blogging with us John!

    Thank you! Screen looks Fabuous, Dahling! Do you know how I change the little whatzit next to my name?
