Tracey McManus / Lousy Staff Writer / The Augusta Chronicle / racism & distorting facts

1 United States Review updated:

A Lying *itch, who deliberately printed lies about a Church Pastor & Good Father, who defending his Son & many neglected children, who were manipulated & have been unfairly attacked by a corrupt & out-of-control Superintendent & a insane school principal (with a long history of mistreating & unfairly suspending kids since 2009)!! Dr. Beckles, is a true hero, helping other parents & children who were victimized, and for standing up to the constant Misconduct & Injustice by The Augusta B.O.E., Frank Roberson & Kim Davis!! She printed lies to change the issue of kids being mistreated by Principal Kim Davis, and make Roberson & The B.O.E., look good and avoid further lawsuits; which they didn't accomplish, because many of these Parents are preparing to file more lawsuits against The Augusta Chronicle & The Augusta B.O.E.!!

    THE PROOF OF REV. DR. FRANK BECKLES'S CREDIBILITY IS ALL IN THE MANY NEWS REPORTS (LIKE THIS ONE) & ONLINE ARTICLES THAT HAVE SUBSTANTIATED ALL OF HIS CLAIMS & CAREER AS A RESPECTED CHURCH PASTOR & COMMUNITY LEADER: (WRDW) -- An Augusta father says he kept his son home from school Friday morning for fear he'd be picked on by bullies. Rev. Dr. Frank Beckles, Jr., then turned to school officials for help but says they offered little. It's a story we hear from many of you parents concerned about out-of-control bullying. Dr. Beckles works at the Augusta Christian Center, Trinity Hospital Chaplin, and is Director of the Children’s Christian Center. He waited two months before he contacted News 12. He said he wanted to give the school time to respond and take action, but when he says nothing changed, that's when he decided enough was enough. "One day I was walking to the bus stop and this girl she slapped me in my face, " said Copeland Elementary School fourth grader Chris Beckles. "I fell to the ground, my glasses fell to the ground and broke." Chris went to his bus driver, but he says he got no response, so he went home to his dad . "I, of course, was upset; I went to the school, went to the principal's office, " said his father. Dr. Beckles says he spoke to the principal's secretary who had Chris and a witness write up statements about what happened. "I watched them do that and she assured me everything would be handled and I said, 'Great, I'm going to work, I'm already late, I'll leave it in your hands, '" Dr. Beckles said. Two months later, he says he still hasn't heard anything and the bullying has not stopped. "Some other kids [are] trying to pick on me, but I ignore them, " Chris said. "The bullying kept continuing, so I was forced to take my son to school, which is putting me out of my way. You know, I've got a job and I've got to support my family, " Dr. Beckles said. So he reached out again, but he says he still isn't getting answers and now he doesn't know where to go. "What is the role of the school? I mean their job is to help protect our kids when we bring them to the school. Parents count on them to do that, " he said. As a mentor for kids from all over the area, Dr. Beckles says he knows it's not just his son. Bullying is a growing problem, and he's hoping that by bringing awareness to the issue something will be done. "Wake up and do something about it, " he said. Dr. Beckles said one of the biggest issues seems to be a breakdown in communication between the bus drivers, the principals and the Board of Education. He says issues seem to get passed on to the next person, making it difficult to find a solution to the problem. News 12 reached out to the principal of Copeland Elementary and didn't hear back but did speak with Superintendent Frank Roberson. He says the bus stop is an extension of the school and they do their best to look into every report of bullying there and at the schools, but unfortunately, they can't catch everyone. He says he'll look into this particular situation. http://www.wrdw.com/home/headlines/Parents-looking-to-bring-awareness-to-bullying-issue-schools-206019021.html

Rev. Dr. Frank Beckles, Jr., says his son's glasses were broken when was bullied and Principal Davis failed to do anything about it. So, he took his issues up with the Richmond County Board of Education. "I spoke with Mrs. Mizorah Ash, who assured me that everything would be taken care of and, of course, it wasn't, " Dr. Beckles says. Another parent, Iiesha McClendon, also spoke out against the principal at Copeland Elementary School. She says Davis sent her child home from school, without a write-up, in the car of a faculty member. The outraged mother took the issue straight to the principal. "The way she talked to me was like I was a two-year-old child, " McClendon says. Like Dr. Beckles, McClendon says she then turned to the Richmond County Board of Education, speaking with Deputy Superintendent Tim Spivey, but that appears to be as far as her complaint went. Richmond County Schools Superintendent Frank Roberson says this is the first he's heard of these accusations, but that he intends to resolve them. "If there are any issues, I would encourage any credible parent to bring them to my attention. My door is open." Some teachers also appear to be concerned about how discipline is handled in Richmond County. A Craigslist posting by someone claiming to be a teacher is titled "Richmond County Teachers Are Not Animal Wranglers". The post accuses the Board of Education of being "clueless" and not telling the truth. The Board of Education is also dealing with several harrassment suits. Still, the Superintendent says things are under control. "Mr. Roberson, is there a problem in Richmond County schools?" we asked. "There's not a problem in Richmond County Schools, " he answered. Dr. Roberson says he's currently looking into who's behind the Craiglist rant. He also says he cannot speak on the lawsuits because they are still being investigated. We will continue to follow this story and bring you the latest information as it becomes available. http://www.wjbf.com/story/22471964/parents-petition-to-have-copeland-elementary-schools-prinicpal-replaced _____________________________________________________________________________________ Parents petition for removal of Copeland Elementary principal By: Karen Edwards - Posted: Mon 11:26 AM, Jun 03, 2013 • Parents want local school principal fired News 12 at 11 o'clock / Sunday, June 3, 2013 AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Parents are outraged at a local elementary school principal for what they're calling disorderly conduct. Now, they're taking a stand after a string of complaints against this principal in the last year. "We're trying to get the Board of Education to acknowledge this problem, " said Rev. Dr. Frank Beckles. Beckles has lived in Augusta for more than 10 years, and when it was time for his son, Christian, to start school at Copeland Elementary, he never thought he'd have problems with the school. "The initial problem started last year with kids being attacked at the bus stop, " he said. Beckles says Christian was one of those kids. He says he was assured that the principal, Kimberly Davis, was taking measures to make sure it didn't happen again, but Beckles says it did. "The same thing happened again, " he explained. "In this situation, my son was not only attacked, they broke his glasses." A father of three with one on the way, Beckles says he feels there's a problem and that it starts with Davis. "It used to be not like this, " he said. "There was a time where you had principals and teachers [and] a majority of them really cared about the students." After dealing with the issue for about a year, Beckles took his children out of school, and now, he's gotten about 50 signatures of other parents who say they're dealing with similar problems. "Complaints have been piling up with the Board of Education and it's like a standstill, " Beckles said. Beckles and his wife were shocked to realize they weren't the only ones with issues with Davis. "A lot of parents, like myself, we've tried to work with the Board of Education, " he explained. Now, Beckles, along with other parents, plans to take a stand by marching the petition to the Board of Education Wednesday afternoon. "We're going to act on faith and let God direct us on what we need to do, but we feel that the first course of action is getting her fired, " he said. Beckles says the march this Wednesday isn't just about getting Davis removed -- their main goal is to get conversations flowing about parents' issues. News 12 reached out to Copeland Elementary and the school board but did not hear back. http://www.wrdw.com/news/schools/headlines/Parents--209882391.html
