Posted By on Tue, Nov 3, 2015 at 2:59 PM

Here's the open line and today's news roundup. Also:

* ASSAULT CHARGE: Details from KTHV on the arrest of Michael McCray,.36, on a charge of sexual assault and rape. he was arrested at the Jacksonville Lighthouse College Prep charter school, where he worked, but the charges stem from allegations related to his former employment at the private Anthony School in Little Rock. The Jacksonville school said McCray had passed a criminal background check. He has been suspended from that job. A Little Rock police report said McCray was a teacher and that he was accused of having sex with a 15-year-old several times.

* BACK TO SCHOOLS: Arkansas Business has coverage of a talk to Rotary today by Baker Kurrus, the Little Rock school superintendent. Little Rock will become Detroit if the pubic schools are left with an overwhelming population of improverished special needs kids while others are drained off by private and charter schools. Yes.
