Re-instate Dr. Crumbs as Principal of Columbus High School

Dr. Marvin Crumbs, a man who has done so much for the Muscogee County School District and Columbus High School, was re-assigned to the Department of Academics. He has been a great leader & principal of Columbus High AND THE STUDENTS AGREE. An attempt to "lighten-up the mood" at a staff meeting caused him to be re-assigned. He did not intend to offend anyone, and his competence & ability for running Columbus High School is incomparable. It is pertinent that he be re-instated as Principal of Columbus High School, for the sake of the students and the school.

This is the news story for his re-assignment: http://www2.wrbl.com/news/2012/apr/17/columbus-high-school-principal-faces-re-assignment-ar-3625374/

Whether you feel that the video he showed was offensive or not, it does not mean he should be re-assigned from his duty as principal of Columbus High School! He showed the video to ADULT teachers and in no way intended to offend ANYONE. It will be a great loss to Columbus High School & it's students if his re-assignment stays in place.

      There are news reports stating that some people have been threatening to burn down Columbus High and other unreasonable, ILLEGAL threats if Dr. Crumbs isn't reinstated. I've also seen some myself of which I do not approve. Peaceful, non-threatening protesting is the only way anyone will listen to us. PLEASE, I BEG YOU, for the cause itself, please do not resort to saying such things. This petition is clearly proving a point without threats and lowering ourselves to unrighteous moral standards--- And I know personally that CHS teaches us to do things with respect, consideration, and uphold moral (and legal) values no matter how strongly we feel, so let's stick to that and prove that we are valuable, reasonable citizens whose opinions are worthy of being heard!

      The link also contains a video of testimonial from a few students & a few comments from Dr. Crumbs' daughter, a senior at Columbus High School. It also mentions THIS petition.

      Columbus has a population of around 200,000. If we reach 100,000 signatures, it will show that more than half of number of people that live in Columbus want due justice for Dr. Crumbs and to reinstate him as Columbus High's principal.

      I first knew Dr. Crumbs as Coach crumbs at a Columbus middle school. He was a great educator then, and is a great administrator now.

      Of all the educators my daughter had from River Road, Richards Middle School and Columbus Magnet School, Mr. Crumbs was who she went to first to tell that she was accepted into University

      Of Georgia. That tells you that his character and lasting impression he imprinted on a student priceless. MCSD you kept Ms. Bryant for worse offenses but fired probably the best principal CHS has had in years? MCSD it is very evident you can't fix stupid, how are you with fixing crazy!

      Coach Crumbs was a teacher of mine at Richards Mmiddle School. He was an amazing Teacher, he always had our best interest at heart and was good at his job. He is a sweet, honest man. He impacted my life..and I will never forget him. Please, let him have his job back.
