Worm Turns on No Sub Plans in CCSD

A minor earthquake occurred in the Charleston County School District this week. However, this one cannot be corrected with seismic upgrades.

From every quarter word poured in: Superintendent McGinley's plan to eliminate substitute teachers for the rest of the year is dead on arrival. A dud. Deader than a dodo.

Forced to back down, district officials poured out their tale of woe to the P & C in Thursday's edition [see No Substitute for Subs?]. According to McGinley, "Everyone agrees this is not something we want to do [. . .]. I'm not disagreeing with people saying that this will impact our classrooms. That's a legitimate concern, and we don't want to do that."

Well, in that case why get it approved by the School Board in the first place?
This maneuver is usually called backpedaling.

Keystone Kops again.
