Dunwoody and Brookhaven Neglected by DeKalb Schools No Surprise

Dunwoody taxpayers pay in DOUBLE the amount of tax dollars to the DeKalb School System compared to most other parts of DeKalb when factoring number of students in Dunwoody, tax revenue received, and cost per student to educate.  In other words, Dunwoody would need $100 million to operate a school system spending the same amount as Dekalb, yet sends $200 million to the school system (approximate numbers).   But moms and dads here don't ask for double the number of books, they don't ask for double the amount of gymnasiums or tracks, they don't ask for double the amount of textbooks - they just want is needed.  In return, the central office employees continue to treat District 1schools and students poorly.




Nice gesture by the Central Office observer to park in the principal's spot on the first day of school, August 12, 2013.  Yes, the temporary tag is expired on the new car, and probably the other new cars as well.  No worries, this is not a line item for SACS.

Well, that is rather arrogant of the DCSS administrator. Any idea who it was? Just another day in DCSS.

From a Vanderlyn Mom, Thank you! Our teachers are confined to every closet and nook because DCSS can't do their job. The Superintendent and "new" Board are not friends of Dunwoody.

Sometimes I wonder if they do this stuff on purpose so that we will all pull our kids out of the public schools. That would solve the overcrowding problem in Dunwoody and they would no longer have to deal with those annoying Dunwoody parents. They are much more interested in collecting our tax $$ than meeting the needs of our children.
