Some Knox County residents asked about director of schools in phone poll

Posted:

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Some people in Knox County got robo-calls Thursday night, asking them to take part in a poll about their knowledge of Director of Schools Dr. Jim McIntyre.

The call, from free community newspaper The Knoxville Focus, asks:

"Are you aware that superintendent of schools Dr. James McIntyre has only one year of classroom teaching experience? One yes, two no."

The publisher of The Focus tells 6 News they feel like there is interest in survey calls, and that all their calls begin with "This is Focus Research." They say they regularly conduct such phone polls.

Teachers packed the school board session Wednesday to express their concern, which included Dr. McIntyre's performance.
