Comparing Apples To Peaches ...

An article explaining the loss of accreditation at a Georgia School System ...

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/29/education/29clayton.html?_r=0

"The last school system to lose accreditation was in Duval County, Fla., in the 1969-70 school year, Dr. Elgart said. Many individual schools have also lost accreditation."

School "SYSTEMS" vs individual schools.

This was 45 years ago!

We are not at risk for any individual school.

Also Clayton County and the Atlanta area ARE NOT comparable in any way whatsoever to rural Pickens County. The make up of the students ethnicity is different as well as the article states.

Further, there are no ethical violations I see on the board other than a conflict of interest in the Easley District - a former teacher voting on her own raises in retirement and voting certain ways just to show out to a board member she dislikes. 

Furthermore, the article states that Clayton County's loss of accreditation was also in part due to outside influences manipulating the school board. I can think of no better example than CCPC in our area. So, if we lose accreditation we can be assured that they were the reason.
