I have lived in Tucker my entire life. Since 1971. Grandparent and parents are native to this area opening up successful businesses back in the 70's, 80's and 90's. This kind of behavior from residents should not be tolerated on any level. As soon as Tucker started allowing inner city kids to move in to the local high schools. the family's started moving in as residents and since then, Tucker has went to hell in a hand bag. Keep the trash out, and if they want to behave like animals, then treat them like animals, lock them off, ship them back to where they came from. The Zoo! Sick animalistic behavior deserves no mercy.

Perhaps it is your intent to apply a thin veil to your racism and intolerance, but as a resident of Tucker I, respectfully, disagree with your approach. Tucker is still a very safe area and a wonderful place to live. Our diversity should be applauded and celebrated as the wonderful opportunity it provides in our ever-changing world. We survive together or not at all. The schools have changed, but with some elbow grease by concerned folks such as yourself, we can restore them to excellence. We could all ask ourselves how many volunteer hours we've logged at an area school lately to show our support and level of concern about their success. Our children and property values depend upon the success of our schools. We are all stakeholders. Trying to keep "them" out is an exercise in futility. Being a part of the solution and bridging the gap is a wonderful way to communicate with new neighbors and save "our" community.

"Our" children no longer attend the public schools so don't waste your time trying to volunteer. Tucker's children have been forced to private schools while "our" schools have been filled with the Title I children whose parents were convinced they would get a better education somewhere else. The truth is that the relocation of children only allows the "sending" schools to keep the Title I money but the burden of educating the children is place upon us. It isn't about "us" or "them," but about poor decisions made by the school board. What has the Tucker Parent Council done about any of this? What do the PTAs have to say?

The PTA's are aware of the issues but board policies need to be changed. It takes an entire community to help make change and not just school parents. Have you been to a Tucker Parent Council meeting? Please come to the October 2 meeting at Tucker HIgh at 6 p.m.

Dr. Atkinson will be speaking and she will also be back on October 16 at 7 p.m. for parent roundtables.
