Norton Elementary parents upset that teacher's contract not renewed

I would give Gwinnett County Schools poor marks in this case for bad timing and communication. It's not brilliant to have worried children and then expect them to do well on tests. However, these parents say their kids are "traumatized." I can't help but think that maybe these parents should take a trip to Joplin MO to help with tornado clean up efforts to learn what real traumatized kids look like.

Parents upset over nonrenewal of teacher
SNELLVILLE — Some parents at Norton Elementary School said the unfair treatment of a fifth-grade teacher has ruined the end of the year for their children. Several parents said Dianne Ashmore was notified on April 21, the Thursday before her students took the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests, that her contract would not be renewed for the following school year.
