  1. Cecily is far from the best choice for the school board. Charlie is more in tune with what is happening in schools now because he is currently a teacher, which is better than just having kids in the schools. Not to mention the fact that Cecily has yet made an attempt to make an appearance or show concern for some communities in her district. Anyways I hope that everyone does their due diligence and finds out the facts.

    • My vote for Cecily is based on much more that just that she is an APS parent. My point in recognizing that was to show that Cecily has intricate knowledge of the workings of the schools. As vice chair of the school board, and a school board member for four years, chair of the audit committee and accountability committee, she has a long history of positive interaction with the Atlanta school system and as an advocate for students. Cecily has been a part of what has made this school board a board that was just recognized as the best urban school board in the nation. I do agree that everyone should research the candidates, and I urge people to check both Cecily and Charlie’s Web sites.

      • I agree that the board has done some good things, but when the schools currently have a 40% graduation rate, I am more concerned about the future. Cecily has said little about how she plans to change this or the fact that APS could lose its accreditation within the next four years. The fact that she has said little to nothing about those two things means that she does not have a plan and having no plan will not help any of us or get my vote.
