DISD school board trustee Carla Ranger
Took her a few days for her to respond, but, at last, Dallas Independent School District trustee Carla Ranger has posted a lengthy essay
concerning the school board's Thursday-night vote to extend the trustees' terms
from three to four years. Ranger, who's already called the action illegal
on numerous occasions, this morning begins her essay by quoting Molly Ivins before cutting to the chase:
Last week's 7-2 vote
on adopting four year terms was a reflection of the current willingness
of the Dallas ISD Board to use ruthless politics to preserve its power.
Dallas ISD needs to be cleaned up and cleaned out, beginning with the
Board right on through the Superintendent and his deeply flawed
administration that appears to have little respect for truth, teachers
The Dallas ISD culture is one of arrogance, deceit, cover-up and cronyism.
And she's only getting warmed up. --Robert Wilonsky
