April 11, 2011

Test scores are up. Dropout rates are down. So why is the job vacancy for superintendent of West Point schools about to become a hard sell for potential candidates?
Because one local group of “concerned citizens” is threatening action if its demands are not met. And what are they demanding? Are they pleading for fairness in the hiring process?
They would say yes, but their actions say no. Are they asking for the school district to hire the most qualified candidate? Again, the answer is no.
