How’s that for a compromise?
We at DeKalb School Watch are less interested in political nitpicking than we are in seeing successful new cities rise from the smoking ruins of a corrupt and failing DeKalb County [GA] government and school system.
Successful new cities will build successful new independent school systems.
Successful new cities will attract new businesses, new residents and economic growth.
To achieve that, however, everyone involved is going to have to pull up their big kid panties and remember what you learned in kindergarten. Collaborate, cooperate and compromise. No more bullying. No more stamping your foot and declaring, “My way or the highway!”
Have you considered getting an uninvolved facilitator?
DeKalb County (government and school system) doesn’t want you to create your own city. It means less money and less power for the corrupt. Instead of fighting you, though, they will let you fight each other. If you can’t find a way to collaborate, cooperate and compromise, you will lose and they will win. Do you really want that?
Meanwhile, current cities in DeKalb — including the new cities of Dunwoody and Brookhaven — will reap the benefits of better schools which will, in turn attract new businesses, new residents and economic growth.
For this reason, we have made an editorial decision. To discourage the petty and selfish infighting, we will no longer print anything about creating new cities in the Briarcliff, Lakeside, Tucker and Druid Hills areas.
Do let us know, though, when you reach a compromise decision that most everyone can get behind. If we can confirm agreement among all parties involved, we will definitely print that.
