Atlanta, Georgia © GTSO, June 8, 2012,– The GeorgiaTeachersSpeakOut.Com blog just named Romain Dallemand, embattled and beleaguered superintendent of the Bibb County School System headquartered in Macon, Georgia, home of Otis Redding, Little Richard, and the Allman Brothers Band as well as the International Cherry Blossom Festival, as one of the members of the exclusive club called the Superintendent Clowns of America (SCA). He joins other superintendent clowns of Georgia, Hart County’s Jerry Bell, Clayton County’s Edmond Heatley, and DeKalb County’s Crawford Lewis (no longer superintendent but criminally indicted). Dr. Trotter stated today: “Well, we just felt that the antics of Romain Dallemand demanded that we put a rush on his induction into the Superintendent Clowns of America. There are thousands of superintendents out there. So, this induction of Mr. Dallemand is quite telling.”
Other Georgia superintendents in this exclusive Superintendent Clowns of America will be selected during this coming school year. The response from the readers indicates that they really like GTSO letting them know who the Superintendent Clowns are. Dr. Trotter observed: “I remember when we intended to go to the DeKalb Central Office to do our Clown Picket against Crawford Lewis. We had already purchased the clown outfit from Party City. But, we got a call that day which entailed us conducting an emergency picket against an interim principal at Atlanta’s Douglass High School who was trying to make it mandatory for teachers to work on Saturday. So, we headed to Atlanta instead to conduct the “Remember the Sabbath” picket instead of going to DeKalb County. By the way, he backed off this Saturday work. You know what happened that day in DeKalb? The DeKalb Police and I think also the G. B. I. raided then Superintendent Crawford Lewis’s office! We had been saying all along – very openly – that DeKalb County was a ‘gangsta school system.’”
The Superintendent Clowns of America also inducted former Atlanta superintendent, Beverly Hall, into its ranks. Hall sat in the superintendent’s seat in Atlanta while the school system engaged in the greatest cheating scandal in the history of American Public Education. Again , it was MACE, the most aggressive teachers union in Georgia (and probably the entire South), which kept calling the Atlanta Public Schools (APS) “a gangsta school system” openly on the streets with picket signs and in the media and in its own publications.
