Black Children are important

Black children are important. Their education is important.  Nelson Mandela said, “There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”

Columbus City Schools is embarking on a new school term.  Presently there are directorial openings in Safety/Security and Transportation. These are important positions. The folks charged with getting children to and from school. The folks responsible for creating a secure safe environment for learning.  Who will be making the hiring decision for these roles? Operations within the district are a vital cog in the education scheme.  We must demand that competent professionals are hired to foster an environment for learning.

  1. The children need to get to school on time on a regular basis
  2. The schools need to be safe and secure.
  3. The buildings need to be professionally managed and maintained.

If the same people are still responsible for the above tasks during 2022-2023 school term, how will issues get better? Black children’s education should not be impeded because of leadership incompetence in the Operations division.
