Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Stokes County School budget is finally complete - SRO’s lost; teaching positions left unfilled

(By Ryan Sarda, The Stokes News) - The budget for the 2011-12 school year was a hot topic in Ronnie Mendenhall’s Board of Education meeting debut as the new Superintendent of Stokes County Schools.

The Board of Education unanimously approved the 2011-12 budget as proposed in their monthly meeting held at the Administrative Office in Danbury on Monday night.

Among some of the cuts in this upcoming school year are School Resource Officers, which saves the school system roughly $156,900.

There will be now one SRO at each of the three high schools. For the middle schools and the elementary schools, there will be one SRO representing the entire county.
