I Was Happy To See The Elected Officials Speak Out About The Forced Resignation Of Dr. Anthony Jackson Superintendent Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools

My heart was happy to see the elected officials speak out about the forced resignation of Dr. Anthony Jackson Superintendent Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools.

See what officials spoke and the impact it should have on all folk who are concerned about injustice and the racism that plague Nash and Edgecombe County. Read about it in the following article in the Rocky Mount Telegram, “Local officials fret about impact of superintendent’s ouster.” After reading this then go to The Political Agitator blog post, Photos/Video: Racism At It’s Best In Rocky Mount NC, See It For Yourself The Lynching Of The Black Superintendent Dr. Anthony Jackson and look at what happened during the meeting for yourself.

My videos and photos don’t lie!

More Nash County Bullying As It Relates To The Education System In The Twin Counties

The Edgecombe County Board of Commissioners have rejected the ultimatum given by Nash County Board of Commissioners as it relates to the formula for financing of the Nash-Rocky Mount system. These guys under the leadership of commissioner Robbie Davis continue to attempt to bullying the Edgecombe County Board of Commissioners, Edgecombe County Public Schools and the Rocky Mount City Council into doing what they think is right or they want to divide the schools. Sad but bullying seems to be the norm these days in Nash County.

I was glad to read the Rocky Mount Telegram article titled, “Edgecombe board rejects Nash County’s school funding ultimatum.” I say thank you to the Edgecombe County Board of Commissioners for standing up.

The Rocky Mount City Council and the Edgecombe County Public Schools meet next week so I am quite confident they will reject that mess also.
