What the What? Carla Ranger's Firing Has Suddenly Turned into "Radical Demotion."
|DISD board trustee Carla Ranger|
So, why the change of heart? Ranger has her theories, which will have to do in lieu of an official explanation from DCCCD officials who refuse to return Unfair Park's phone calls -- even if only to explain it's a personnel issue about which they cannot to comment. Writes Ranger:
In essence, I was offered the "opportunity" to start over from scratch at the very end of a 20-year career with the District.
Something is very wrong with this picture.
I believe this was in response to the questions that have been raised by others about my dismissal. ...
What has been presented is the choice to leave the district or take a transfer and demotion. The demotion also might make it very difficult to continue serving on the school board.
On Monday I was offered nothing. On Friday I was offered an unjust demotion. From Monday to Friday -- a week of dismay, disappointment and disbelief.
The whole thing appears to make no sense -- except for the smell of politics.
