Six Walker Elem. Schools added to Fed. Support & Improvement List | Nepotism & Ethics Issues: Should Board Members Resign? Or Have Consequences and Accountability Been Cast Aside For Adults Too?
The Board with the exception of a couple of members has never been in the classroom ever and Damon Raines has been out of the classroom for nearly two decades. They can’t afford to pay subs but they can afford to pay multiple county administrators six figures. They waste thousands on silly social and character education programs like 7 Mindsets but can’t afford to pay bus drivers enough to keep them. Compare the number of job openings in Walker to Catoosa, Dade, or Whitfield comparatively to the numbers of teachers in those counties and it’s astonishing. Incompetence at every level, with that much control at the Board level one would think the central office has been outstanding in its leadership not near or at the bottom of every conceivable academic category.
Having past experience with a few school systems I found it strange to know that Mr Raines does not hold a doctorate in Education! He is the only school superintendent that I have personally meet that does not hold that title. Another issue I take a large exception to is this appointment of school board members that should be decided by the voters!!
Yeah we got teachers now creating jobs for their husbands and funneling children threw these corrupt programs set up to benefit the crooks and rob students and parents thanks walker county seems more like DC here in any official position the poor go to work and the rich pass this corrupt scam on to their children ha ha
I had to leave same comment here as I leave before. Corrupt school in Walker County. Walker County Schools are corrupt from the top to the bottom. Even at the state level. A high school teacher Dana Cole in her 40s no children ended up luring a former 18 year old student who moved away into her home. The girl was kept from her family, doesn't speak to her parents brothers, extended family or anyone outside Dana's circle. The teacher Dana Cole adopts this adult and has her name changed. Apparently the parents tried filing complaints about Dana Cole but nothing was ever done. The parents posted pics of the teacher's social media post that were not appropriate for a teacher. The teacher then must have threatened the parents because they quit posting. The parents tried seeing their daughter and was threatened. Dana Cole is a high school teacher, her husband Duane Cole works at an elementary school, the girl works at the same school as Dan's husband. The parents live out of town and were threatened. This teacher wanted a daughter so she just took someone else's daughter and claimed as her own. Damon Raines and Maggie Stultz knew but did not do anything according to the parents. Oh and if you respond to Dana Cole online she will block you if she doesn't like what you say. Walker county is very corrupt. Allowing a teacher to take someone's adult daughter and destroy a family is absurd. If they got away with this what else are they capable of. This is scary to think about.
