     New superintendent pledges to remove “junk” - At a swearing-in ceremony Friday, the new superintendent of schools, Dr. Carlton Wilson said he is proud to be taking the reins of one of the best school systems in the state.

He told those assembled his goal is to see Pickens recognized as a top 10 school system and when that happens, work for the number one spot. Wilson said he would strive to take away the “junk” that

bogs down classroom teaching. “Teachers need to be able to teach and principals to control their schools,” Wilson said.

Wilson was sworn-in as superintendent by Magistrate Judge Allen Wigington. Wilson’s wife Cindy held the Bible for the ceremony.

How about getting an attorney off the payroll! Imagine if they had done that instead of getting rid of the AR program a couple of years ago! Best of luck to Dr Wilson!

What a weird scene. Why the h3ll is he being sworn in?? Appointed public officials are not required by law to take an oath of office, so this just looks like a dog and pony show to make the public think there's some integrity in the process. Also how the #&*$ can a board appoint its top official without having contract details in place??

Wow, are you looking to take a position at Fox News? You seem to be very quick to spout off quotes concerning law and policy without knowing what you are speaking off. How about next time you do a little research so you don't embarrass yourself?

It look me only about two seconds in a google search to find this Georgi law:

§ 20-2-103 - Oath of local school superintendent
Universal Citation: GA Code § 20-2-103 (2014)
Before entering upon the discharge of his or her official duties, the local school superintendent shall take and subscribe to the following oath of office. . .

To me, sounds like Judge Wigington and Dr. Wilson weren't so much in a "dog and pony" show as they were doing what the law required. Go figure, integrity? I'd rather have a public display of integrity like that than see your uninformed, ignorant rant any day.

Good luck Dr. Wilson.

Who is forcing you to read my rants? You should alert the authorities if anyone if doing so. Thanks for suggesting I would excel in a job at one of the biggest and most successful media companies in the world, and thank you for clarifying my previous misunderstandin g of the law, which is redundant and ridiculous in this case. I am so embarrassed, just like you want me to be
