The Cobb County School Board Remains Silent Regarding Safety Concerns Following the Stabbing at Sprayberry High School.

Parents in Cobb County sought answers and comfort from the school board after a stabbing incident at Sprayberry High School. At Thursday’s school board meeting, however, the board ignored their requests for an audience with answers to their questions and concerns.

Parents have expressed their dissatisfaction with the school board’s lack of transparency and responsibility in the wake of recent occurrences at schools such as McEachern and Sprayberry. Cobb County parent Andrew Cole voiced his dissatisfaction, drawing attention to the superintendent’s and board members’ consistent avoidance of confronting problems that constituents see negatively for the school system.

In the public comment section, a parent voiced his displeasure with the superintendent for downplaying the gravity of school shootings, calling them “events.” In order to make sure that children are secure while they are studying, he stressed the need of open communication and taking proactive steps.

School safety was noticeably absent from the school board’s agenda, despite parents’ passionate demands and the seriousness of the issue. The lack of clear steps and reassurances in response to recent security concerns has only made parents more frustrated and distrustful.

Andrew Cole stressed the need of having serious conversations about safety with both parents and children. He urged the board to show initiative in resolving current challenges and placing a premium on student well-being, and he questioned their attempts to communicate and handle complaints properly.

Nevertheless, the superintendent chose not to comment on the issue or reassure attendees during his subsequent speeches, opting instead to keep mute. In addition, the school board members and superintendent have not responded to Atlanta News First’s interviews requests, which has only served to deepen the community’s mistrust of the school’s administration.
