      Three comments about Florence Griffith Joyner Elementary

      your comment about investigating our principal is out of line.. you need to investigate the mayors people who were passing out flyers out side of our school. they were being paid $15.00 an hour to do it.. our teachers, staff, and parents fought to save our school for free, only the love of our kids.

      you need to leave our school alone. our kids have been improving in the last five or six years. people would find out better information if they came and get involved in our community. the dynamics of our community reflects the scores in the star, and ayp.
