The Replacement: Hinojosa Gets Official Nod From Georgia; Dallas ISD to Name Temp
Why the hubbub? "All we can find on the Internet from Dallas is very negative," said one parent to the Action News team, which sums up their rumblings thusly: "Critics said they're upset about Hinojosa's record on hiring teachers from Mexico, his handling of the budget crisis in Dallas and his district's low test scores." Oh, well -- he's all yours now. Still, as you'll see on the other side, the official CCSD video from last night's meeting isn't exactly ... fiery, let's say.
Meanwhile, the DISD board will more than likely announce his replacement at the 5 p.m. called board meeting, where it will also accept Hinojosa's letter of resignation. Leslie's drawn the rookie's short straw to attend that meeting, most of which will more than likely take place behind closed doors, at which point Lew Blackburn will leg-wrestle Carla Ranger, winner gets to pick the selection -- Nolan Estes or recently installed district CFO Alan King, who used to a great job temping for Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show.
All of which, for some reason, reminds me of my favorite least-SFW Replacements song.
