Re: “School Board president OK with rules on John Walker access to school offices

Mr. Walker's next move inasmuch as board president Adams has answered him. What will Walker's next move be? As the LRSD turns :-)

Re: “Five to be considered for Little Rock School Board opening

Branch does not reside in Zone 6 either and is therefore not eligible...

Re: “Little Rock's principal shuffle hard to undo

Downtowner
Agreed, the current superintendent is a historical loser--check w/the parents in NO--and doing his best to leave our district in a wreck. No one has said but Holmes only has a year remaining on his contract. It is too bad that he was hired in the first place and you are right Downtowner, Holmes needs to be refreshed to somewhere else IMMEDIATELY (30-minute notice)...

Re: “Unhappiness on LR School District principal shuffle

Pookah
The hour is late and I am, while l have had an enjoyable father's day, tired. Nevertheless, do you feel that you are most efffective as a teacher when your students fear you? Holmes' management via fear is indeed stupid and goes against sound management practices anywhere and in any profession. I would--Pookah--love to have you respond. Thanks :-)

Re: “Unhappiness on LR School District principal shuffle

I never would have hired Holmes for a two-year contract, given his track record, especially in New Orleans. For him to excoriate Walker because he called his hand on his stupid reassignment of princiapls, indeed sucks. He defends his actions as "refreshing" of the identified schools. LR will most certainly be "refreshed" this time next year when Holmes' anemic tenure will just about be over. Knowing of his short time that remains, he should have just "held the keys." Surely the new superintendent will come in and place his/her "brand" on LRSD, to include personnel changes. Holmes could do us all a favor and leave early.

Re: “Dr. Calvin Johnson to lead UAPB in interim

GOLDEN LIONS NATION
Dr. Donald R. Bobbitt's selection of Dr. Calvin Johnson as interim chancellor is an excellent one. Calvin will be great in providing for a seamless transition to our permanent chancellor which is to take place by July, 2013. Of equal applause, Dr. Bobbitt is to praised--according to the ADG--in committing that the permanently-selected chancellor will have UAPB ties. The entire Golden Lions Nation should be pleased with this commitment. Thanks Dr. Bobbitt and Go Lions :-)...
