eStem announces Brooks' departure

Posted By on Thu, Jan 14, 2010 at 9:19 AM

The eStem Charter School in downtown Little Rock called in press this morning to announce that the organization's chief administrator, Roy Brooks, is stepping down at the end of the year. It's unclear whether there will continue to be a separate administrative office for the three eStem charter schools, which expand to K-11 in 2010, officials said

"My challenge is done," Brooks said. He declined to specify what his future plans might hold. He's operated a consulting business previously.

Brooks was hired to lead eStem after he was ousted as Little Rock School District superintendent by a split school board. The administrative office he's heading has undergone a number of budget cutbacks because it was running deeply in the red. Brooks' own pay was cut. Jess Askew of the eStem Board said budget difficulties had been solved by the cuts.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
