Skip to comments.Principal Under Scrutiny Over Rapper T.I. Appearance (Bashed Bush As Answer to Parents' Complaints)

- Some Henry County parents called Channel 2 Action News concerned not only about a visitor to their children's school, but also how the principal reacted when they questioned him about it.
The entire incident involves Atlanta rapper T.I., Woodland Middle School and the principal's e-mail exchanges with a parent.
After trying to reason with principal Dr. Terry Oatts for six weeks, Tom Myers, who has four daughters in the Henry County School System, contacted Channel 2 Action News reporter Justin Farmer to share the e-mail correspondence he had with Oatts.
Myers told Farmer that he and his wife, Candi, as well as other parents, simply want to know ahead of time who will be talking to their children during school assemblies.
In an e-mail to Oatts, Myers took issue with the selection of T.I. as a guest speaker because the rapper, whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., is a convicted felon.
In early March, the Myers said one of their girls came home and said, Guess who was at school today? T.I., the rapper.
Last year, Harris served a one-year sentence on federal weapons charges for possession of machine guns and silencers. His criminal history dates back to 1998.
Had I had the opportunity to not let them go, I would have had them sit out, said Tom Myers....
Myers said Oatts replied with the following e-mail: I thought about asking a guy who snorted cocaine and got arrested for DUI when he was 30 to come and speak to our kids, but President George W. Bush was not available.
I could not believe that he would put that in an e-mail or that he would say that, said Myers.
Farmer contacted Oatts for a comment, but Oatts declined.

Publik Skools strike again
Our public “schools” seem to be infested with psychos.
“I thought about asking a guy who snorted cocaine...”
Well, in all fairness, Obama and Bill Clinton are both kinda busy right now...
Welcome to Atlanta, where racism is everyday news.
Here is a video link.
got to get through a short ad first.
That “cocaine” allegation has been around for years. One person started that rumor which has NEVER been founded to be true.
Unlike our current President whom has admitted he DID ILLEGAL DRUGS, President Bush has not done drugs.
The PrinciPAL is a jackass.
I called and told them the Principal needs fired.
I would suggest all do that very thing.
This POS should be fired. Imagine someone saying that about Obama.
barack hussein obama confessed to doing his share of cocaine “back in the day”.
But why no slam on The One?
That principal should be fired. There was a day when fathers would not have taken a response like that lightly. Their taxes pay that man’s salary and he is supposed to be a professional.
