I have just read of the new CCRPI test scores and am dismayed to be reminded of how we in the southern part of the county are being shortchanged. Our school taxes are just the same as those in east Cobb, but our schools continue to be substandard. We as parents, and now grandparents, are being forced to send our children and grandchildren to private schools. That is our only option if we seek a quality education in a safe environment.
We are paying for something that the county is not providing. We need lower taxes or better choices.
