Is the Times Union in love with Iranetta Wright too?

In a piece about principal changes the Times Union referred
to Jackson as a C school, well friends sure it is but only because it benefited
from the states ridiculous and deceptive schools can drop only one letter grade
rule. If not it would have been a D or worse. Isn’t that some powerful context
that the people of Jacksonville should know?
Why is this a big deal? It’s because leaving this out
provides cover for Vitti, the district and area chief Iranetta Wright. Mrs.
Wright was at Jackson for 5 years, a life time by today’s standards, and her
grades were D, F (the lowest grade in the state), D, B (after the district put
in heroic measures and almost half the student body left) and then if we are
being honest a D or less. She got a promotion where other principals didn’t
including her replacement who wasn’t even given a semester.
This makes me scratch my head, what about you?

A media not doing its job is partly responsible for
the hole our schools find themselves in.

  1. The T-U is looking at Vitti thru rose-colored glasses, just as they did with Ed P-D. Journalists are supposed to ask hard questions, but they act as cheerleaders. Did they kick you off their website again? I'd rather read your thought-provoking blog than the fluff pieces on jacksonville.com.
