    I would like to say that Dr. Cline has obviously had Lenoir County school systems and its students greatly in mind while doing his 7 year job. I feel as if the board members did have PERSONAL issues with him and instead of keeping that out of work they brung it into work. His records show a CLEAR improvement. May I lend you my glasses? In the following months we'll see how things look....

    Just remember when you point your finger to blame, there are 3 other fingers, 4 if you count your thumb, that are pointing right back at yourself when you start blaming a person.

    Too many fingers pointing in the wrong directions. Who is to blame? Dr. Kline did not set his own salary. You guys told him what you were willing to pay, so stop talking and DEAL WITH IT

    So the great Connie Mintz reappears. Ask her about how she and others did the same thing to another superintendent.

    after watching the video i'm conviced that connie mintz is only trying to prove she didnt make a big mistake, she said he deserved every cent. cna some one explain what he does to deserve $160.000 when he resigned on his own.

    The contract buyout is ridiculous. However, I see no other alternative given the present situation. Teachers have been forced to resign without remaining salary paid to them. How is this man any better? earning a 30K annual supplement while everyone else takes a cut. Lead by example. Test scores have risen due to the diligence of classroom teachers...not the superintendent. The dropout rate is a joke. There are many 18-21 year olds attending public schools for the free lunch & chance to do mischief. Don't believe everything you read in the reports. Talk to employees of the school system to get a real idea of what occurs. Get involved with your school & understand how your children are getting an education. It is often the teacher that makes a difference not a smiling man in a tailored suit. I wish the best for Cline. May God lead him on a more enlightened path.
