LRSD strategy

Posted By on Tue, Sep 8, 2009 at 11:34 AM

The independent Strategic Planning Commission studying the Little Rock School District will meet at 4 p.m. today at school board offices.

Driving the meeting: Complaints about the commission's leadership -- Jim Argue and Terrence Bolden -- raising some questions about how the district administration chose to spend federal stimulus money. Also at work: Vested interests protecting administration turf and directed grants.

Stimulus spending is done. The School Board has approved the plan. What isn't done is whether the district will undergo fundamanetal change or whether the status quo will prevail. A planning commission that merely reviews the current order and pronounces it good is a commission that is wasting its time. Any effort to squelch candid assessments by those voluntarily devoting time to the project are defending the status quo.

The public is invited.
