Wilson told the annual convocation last Friday of the recent problems…charges of religious discrimination, the arrests of two teachers at Statesboro High School for sexual misconduct with students, the firing of principal Marty Waters for misdemeanor failure to report child abuse in a timely manner. He said they were challenges to be overcome.
He also spoke about the successes of the past year and how they were implemented to improve the teachers’ ability to be more effect instructors and improve the education of the school system’s students. He said those initiatives will continued to be improved in the future.
Wilson said the core of the improvements is the system’s teachers. He said they are important in building a “culture of excellence” which must be strengthened in order to continue growth. He said with their talents and a positive attitude such excellence can continue to grow in the future.
