Bibb School Board needs to do its job and get out of the way

The switch in starting dates for the Bibb County School System will do nothing to increase its grade from an “F” in a recent survey. Although the results of that survey of parents, educators and others are a bit confusing. It’s somewhat like grading Congress -- which had an approval rating of just 10 percent in June -- with most people giving their individual representatives high marks. Those taking the school survey, some 1,271, gave the system no higher than a “C,’ and 51 percent gave the system an “F.” Individual schools, however, generally received better grades.
