Re: “Can the school board stave off the infighting that's marked recent months?

Pinkston should resign his seat and stop embarrassing himself.

Re: “Can the school board stave off the infighting that's marked recent months?

The lack of unity on the Board suggests a lack of unity of purpose and the possibility that individual members are fighting for their own turf issues. In such a scenario, no one wins. Equally the same when "black community leaders" enter the fray pushing a sole candidate. In such a scenario, no one wins. Chairperson Gentry was courageous in pointing this out in a community meeting, and I applaud her leadership.

The lack of communication and dialogue on the Board will haunt the new Director, whomever he or she might be. The Board needs to do some serious self-repair before restarting the search.

Re: “Can the school board stave off the infighting that's marked recent months?

Does anyone really believe Ludye Wallace has the ability to perform the best analysis as to who should lead our school system? We have put some real losers in that position from time to time and paid a price for having done so. Picking the pet candidate of one organization or one power hungry individual is a disastrous reason for this board's next selection.

Re: “Where other mayoral candidates want the pedal down on Nashville's success, David Fox throws a caution flag

Why not make all schools in Nashville run like the ALREADY successful, with a proven history, magnet schools. Duh. We don't need charter schools.
