The N&R is reporting that Guilford County Schools has a new twitter account that they are going to use to provide parents with up-to-date information about what is going on with GCS. Oh my goodness. Apparently Facebook and YouTube pages could follow!
Perhaps I would be more supportive of this type of ridiculous endeavor if there were no other, more pressing, issues that GCS need to work on. Jumping on the “social media” bandwagon is just a stupid waste of taxpayer resources — the redirection of money that should be spent educating our children. If GCS has enough money in the budget for this kind of non-educational nonsense, then they should give some of it back.
