Just fix the district and get rid of the board. Maybe Shapley (however you spell his name) should run for board president.

That lousy SOB can't fix this mess. He screwed the pooch six ways to sunset last time and he's an old man, a real has-been. I think they should wait until the strike is over in Chicago and then lure that broad from up there who got the sweet deal for the teachers. She can turn things around for us and she's not afraid to crack a few skulls if she needs to.

Shapliegh is a politician. He can only run for a position on the board not specifically the president of the board.

The Texas Education Rules and Regulations a Superintendent must be an educator but the board positions can be anyone who has the money to file.

As to Vern Butler taking over as Interim Superintendent, he is a good man and does his work well. He is relatively young being around 64 years old and has taught in the Ysleta schools and then was principal at Bel Air for a long period before being brought in as the interim Superintendent while they looked for a good full time one. Went to UTEP with him and he is a good guy. Smart and most of all straight as an arrow when dealing with people.
