KATV: Author of dissertation says Suggs used her work

I believe I'll check KATV tonight. The Education Department continued its silence today on what Education Commissioner Johnny Key intends to do, if anything, about Dexter Suggs, kept on as interim school superintendent of the Little Rock District after the state booted the school board and took over the district.

As we've written before, Blue Hog Report's discovery of similarities in Suggs' doctoral dissertation and two other earlier works is not his only problem. His mishandling of school organization and an epic blunder in pushing good teachers at Jefferson Elementary have already stirred behind-the-scenes efforts aimed at his removal.

UPDATE: Strong report from KATV. Author specifically says her paper misused and Suggs had no permission to use it. Suggs in on-camera interview categorically says otherwise.

BUT GET THIS: The Arkansas Department of Education referred questions to the Little Rock School District. The state is running the LRSD. Johnny Key is Dexter Suggs' direct supervisor.

ACCOUNTABILITY? ANYONE? BUEHLER?

I asked Key by email several questions, primarily if there was a specific plan to address the plagiarism allegations.  The response:



Hello Max, thanks for the inquiry.

Please be assured that I will keep you in the loop of anything that may develop.
