LR school board update

Posted By on Thu, Jan 11, 2007 at 6:41 PM

I know it's been hard to follow the posting today. It's been frequent and interrelated. (I told somebody that it gave me an appreciation for the organization and flow of that old-fashioned thing called a newspaper, with its orders or priority, differing headline styles, etc.) Anyway, reference numerous earlier posts on LR School Board and education and merit pay: The LR School Board agenda meeting came and went tonight without incident. The Walton School of Education Reform study of Walton-backed merit pay experiments in the LR schools will get its first public airing before a Walton-controlled legislative committe next week, unless somebody happens to agree that a publicly financed study is open to public inspection under the FOI before then. No discussion of the specifics tonight, except of the parameters of the study.

    The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality has denied a new permit for the C&H Hog Farms' concentrated animal feeding operation near Mount Judea (Newton County). This is a big and somewhat surprising victory for critics who have viewed C&H's large-scale pig farm and the pig waste it generates as an existential threat to the Buffalo National River.

    Donald Trump gave a remarkable interview to the New York Times yesterday in which he declared open season on the marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton's past infidelity. Seems like a loser, but I've been wrong before.
