It's Not Just Lunch: The Jennifer Sprague-Mike Miles Story Has Officially Jumped the Shark

SPRAGUEEATS!1.jpg
At his odd press conference defending the $185,000 salary of his communications chief, new Dallas ISD supe Mike Miles mentioned that he's never had coffee with Jennifer Sprague. It sounded unlikely, but you knew what Miles meant: They don't hang out. They're not bros.

But it was only a matter of time before a reporter -- it pretty much had to be a TV reporter -- went digging for the cold, hard facts about Sprague's and Miles' history of shared calorie consumption. And as the unearthed records show, it's a sordid history, involving not coffee but a certain colder, icier caffeinated beverage, which may or may not have been sweetened.

See NBC5's special investigative really special report below, and pay extra attention to the moment when Jon Dahlander, the district's long-time and lesser paid spokesman, has to carefully deny that his new bosses have ever been to Starbucks. We're so sorry, Jon. We're so, so sorry.

 Because everybody knows how well throwing unlimited money at our school superintendent, and anyone he wants to bring with him/her, has worked for us in the past. Obviously the right thing to do. I mean, of course, it hasn't worked the last three times we tried it, but it's bound to work THIS time. I mean, we're DUE right. Yeah, keep buying those lottery tickets, "You can't win unless you play!"

after hearing this Miles guy, I am convinced there is more to this story.  Just looking at him gives me the creeps.  I bet he ends up being another Herman Cain.  He will be booted from DISD before his contract is up.  I can only imagine what the candidates they DIDNT chose are like.

Friends from Colorado Springs are surprised DISD bit on Miles' BS. And there was talk about he and Sprague having something outside the office. DISD needs to start a new search. This guy will be gone before year two.

My ex-wife refers to them as "French benefits," which I did not get after I corrected her.

Having lunch with members of your team is completely OK. Lying about it to the public is not OK.  Lying about it to the public when not even prompted to lie about it to the public is assanine.

So, is he going to get certified? Or just change the evaluation system for teachers who are certified, and he plans to not follow the rules? I am so confused? A $50,000 new teacher in DISD has to follow the rules, but the New Superintendent to Texas wants a 3 year waiver? Pull his contract, it states that failure to obtain certification permit, makes his contract null and void. There is no 3 year waiver in Texas, he had you fooled. There is a permit, that he can apply for, but needs to enroll in a certification program and pass the exam. Maybe then, he can collect the $300K Tax Dollars to add to his campaign fund and contracts with Teach for America and his side-kick gig he has consulting.

You could have just said: Thank you. This error is very easily distinguishable in conversation. Many folks make this mistake and I cringe each time I hear it. You're a smart guy, Scruff. Just trying to help in a snarky sort of way. Another one that just kills me is: "Supposeably" instead of "Supposedly". Also, I don't give a flying shit if you correct it. Disqus will indicate that the post has been edited, anyway.
