Harlan School Update/ALFRA Meeting

We've had some updates and clarifications concerning the termination of Dr. Shirley Coker at Harlan Elementary School in North Florence. It seems six teachers had requested transfers at the end of the last school year. At least some of these teachers were later questioned by an attorney for the Florence School Board.

The first called meeting of the Board was last Tuesday night. Dr. Coker received her walking papers on Wednesday, and a second Board meeting Thursday night put a coat of whitewash on the deal, or as one of our readers stated, the meeting was nothing but window dressing.



On Friday, August 2nd at 10:00 AM, THE ALABAMA ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON CHILD SUPPORT GUIDELINES AND ENFORCEMENT WILL MEET in the Mezzanine Classroom, Heflin-Torbert Judicial Building, 300 Dexter Avenue, Montgomery, Alabama.

The purpose of the meeting is a 4 year review of Child-Support Guidelines in Rule 32, Alabama Rules of Judicial Administration as mandated by Federal Law.

This is an opportunity for parents to share their experiences directly with decision makers, with regard to application of the child support guidelines and enforcement. We would like to invite those impacted to participate so that the Child Support Committee will hear real stories of real situations to help them make informed and fact-based decisions toward improving the child support system for Alabamians. Even if you do not intend to speak, please attend to learn more about how State practices affect the lives of many Alabamians. Your presence alone could make a difference!


ALFRA does much good in the state. If anyone with an interest in reforming the child support system in Alabama has the opportunity to attend this meeting, please do so.
