When bureaucrats control education...

only bureaucrats get educated and parents are left in the dark.....I repeat, why aren't parents mad as hell over the State of Public Education?

After school board members walked parents through their plan to redraw attendance zones in Northeast Shelby County, they approved a different plan Thursday.

"There should have been e-mails or letters that went out to the parents," said Lakeland parent Shelly Cheng. "It just irritates me."

Cheng had attended a public forum on the rezoning with hundreds of other residents three weeks ago. But she was unaware those plans had been changed until a friend contacted her Wednesday, the day before the vote.

The mother of four works part time and was unable to attend the midday board meeting, she said.

"What's the point of having the original (public) meetings?"
