Every board of education member who voted for Dr. Lee’s contract and Dr. Lee who accepted it should hang their heads in shame. Dr. Lee’s three year contract with close to a 20,000 dollar a year raise while our teachers have had to endure pay cuts every year for years in the form of furlough days is deplorable. Not to mention the new car she had to have upon her arrival here while our teachers are paying for ‘their own transportation to and from work as all should be. True leadership would have been the board explaining to Dr. Lee that there is no money available for pay raises until our teachers are no longer having their pay cut through furlough days. True leadership would have been Dr. Lee putting our teachers ahead of her own selfish desires; not needs. This type leadership does not seem to exist at the Liberty County BOE. I guess the board finally found a way to use the surplus money that they have been holding onto for years; unfortunately, our teachers’ needs were not considered. How can you possibly look our teachers in the face and tell them that you have any concern, caring, or compassion for them? Shame on all of you.
