As he closed his media briefing Thursday, Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange said everyone should “just shut up” about reports of improperly changed grades at three Montgomery high schools until investigations of the allegations are completed.
“Whatever the facts are, wherever they lead, I know that the (county) Board of Education will do the right thing because our community, including your city government, including your county government and including the state Board of Education, will be watching,” he said. “Because at the end of the day, we’ve got to have a great educational system for us to continue to make this step forward, continue to have these dreams that we all have realized in this, the capital of dreams.
“So my advice is, let’s just shut up until we see what the results (are), and then it will be time for (editorializing), for talking, for taking action or for doing whatever else it is that is appropriate.”
