We are just now checking the RSS feeds that DeKalb School Watch subscribes to … and there was a new one from Nancy Jester’s whatsupwiththat.nancyjester.com blog:
“I am writing today to express my gratitude and sincere thanks for the opportunity to serve you during the last two years. Please know how much I appreciate your supportive words, calls and prayers. I am proud of the work I did to expose the deceptive budgeting practices and bring a parent’s perspective to the board.
“In the upcoming weeks, I’ll be blogging about various educational issues, legislation and events of importance to DeKalb and our state. We have so much work to do together. As always, I remain steadfastly committed to being an advocate for children and taxpayers.”

We can’t know why selfishness, greed and evil flourish in this world. Certainly DeKalb County seems to have more than its share of such people — people who think nothing of taking away a child’s chance at a decent future so they can line their own pockets and the pockets of their family and friends. We all know who those people are — in DeKalb County — in Alpharetta — and in Georgia. Deep down, spin it as they might, they know who they are, too.
We join with Nancy Jester’s many fans and admirers to thank her for a job well done! We wish we had been present the other night to join in giving Nancy a standing ovation for the stellar work she has done for DeKalb’s children. It’s too bad for DeKalb’s children that she wasn’t allowed to finish.
