Re: “UPDATED: Johnny Key dumps Baker Kurrus as Little Rock school superintendent; to replace with Bentonville's Poore

Don't put a crown on Kurrus' head yet ... The story that is not being told is about how he has been increasing administrative salaries while he plans to do a major reduction in force for the educational support personnel like paraprofessionals and security officers, not to mention cutting five days from the district's 12 month custodians. These people may not matter to most of you, but please remember that most of these people live and work in the district and they send their children to Little Rock schools, unlike many of the teachers who come from Benton and Bryant and Cabot to Little Rock to make more money while they send their kids to the same charter schools you speak of and schools in other areas outside of Little Rock. Kurrus is sacrificing the livelihood of the parents of the children with the least who need the most to build a $52 million facility for children in West Little Rock who already have the most and are about to get more, all with the help of the teacher's union president who has sold them out. If you doubt that, get your hands on last week's LREA in the Know #31!

Re: “Forest Heights STEM Academy goes 'scent considerate'

Interesting that no one is talking about what REALLY prompted this sudden "environmental change" at Forest Heights STEM...a certain teacher who spent her instructional time literally sniffing African-American students in her GT class and putting them out of class for their "fragrances". It would seem to me that if this teacher was really scent-sensitive, she wouldn't walk up to students and sniff them like a dog sniffing someone's behind. It seems that a lot has been done to protect this teacher's rights to "sniff out" black students, but who is looking out for the sniffed children? Can you say "major invasion of personal space" to say the least?!
