By next week, we will have a new superintendent for CCSD schools. The fix has been in for Dwight Jones who is a very unqualified candidate for superintendent. This will be very disgraceful day for CCSD if this happens and it say that the School Board cares more about political correctness than qualifications.
I am sure Jones is a nice guy, but he does not have a doctorate degree, unlike many administrators, principals and teachers do. How will he command respect of those people when does something stupid, controversial or even rational?
He currently supervises 300 employees. That is a far cry from the 25,000 employees. He does not directly over see any school district, school or students. He is in charge of licensing of teachers and assisting school districts with their problems.
He was a superintendent of a school district of about 6,500 students, or about two of the largest high schools in CCSD.
He has not been a superintendent of an urban school district.
And the school board thinks Jones is a qualified candidate?
What is the school board smoking?
