Re: “Parting shot

You sound like another union plant. You must know Jake Da Snake, (A.K.A.) Marshall Slayden at Hall High School. Its amazing that people don't want leadership to be confident and assured. All I've ever heard people say about Nellums is that he's arrogant. I know him too. He's extremely confident in his abilities. Nobody ever talks about his record of turning schools around including Mills High. Do we want passive, figureheads, who don't stand up to anyone.

I interviewed on a panel with him once and he made a statement that will stay with me forever. He said that "poor children shouldn't be shortchanged just because their parents don't have the means to provide that little extra that kids get in other neighborhoods." All seven of us on that committee agreed. For the record, we had just interviewed the worst teaching candidate I'd ever seen, and don't take this personal......from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.
