......School superintendent Terry Grier's appearance before the Guilford County Board of Commissioners perfectly illustrates why school policy and the school board should be politicized and partisan.

While I've credited Grier in the past for interjecting some common sense into school board meetings, it was when he was standing in front of real politicians that he spoke so clearly and concisely and about school policy. He also — with all due respect — took the commissioners to task for complaining about moving money away fromthe Jamestown Middle School project when the commission had appoved such shifting of funds before without such strong opposition.

If Grier and the school board could only cut the educational-bureaucratic double-talk and communicate that effectively and straighforwardly with parents, they might have more friends in Guilford County. The only way to do that, in my opinion, is to get everybody's true political beliefs out in the open.
