School hearing ends

Posted By on Fri, Mar 19, 2010 at 6:16 PM

Chris Heller, the Little Rock School District's attorney, should have been a wire service reporter. I like his economy of words in reporting to the School Board on conclusion of the federal court hearing on whether the Pulaski County School District has met desegregation standards and can be released from court supervision:

the pcssd unitary status hearing ended today, except that the record has been left open for evidentiary depositions of mildred tatum and tim clark. the post trial briefing in the nlrsd and pcssd cases will take months. i do not expect to file a brief for lrsd but will let you know if a party raises an issue to which we need to respond. neither pcssd nor nlrsd did everything they were supposed to do when they were supposed to do it, but the law requires only substantial compliance in good faith with their respective desegregation plans. i could not predict how either case will turn out. ch

  • Central High at 60: Seize the day mayor. Stand up for LR schools.

    The conversion of a national debate on race is an apt commentary for the 60th anniversary of the Little Rock school crisis and the city's effort to sell it as an occasion to laud progress. Progress would be someone talking about the elephant in the room — the white establishment's takeover of the majority black Little Rock School District.

    Former Gov. Mike Beebe urges Arkansans to call senators to defeat the Graham-Calssidy health bill, which he says would be devastating to the Arkansas economy and the hundreds of thousands of people helped by the Medicaid expansion under Obamacare.

  • Obamacare wrecking crew has new legislative wrinkles

    Backers of the Graham-Cassidy legislation to repeal Obamacare are madly trying to amend the bill to win over enough Republican senators for passage. It makes it even worse, if by worse you mean reduces health coverage for Americans.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
