The turnover of principals in our school system, especially the High School and also West Side are tied directly ro Alexander. Our system so badly needs to see him retire.

Pless wont be back at EHS; he is back on the hill.
Randy Little will be principal; if he doesnt take it then an Asst will. OQuinn took a job that pays better with less stress. Good timing as school starts monday.......

What about TAD? The principal's office has had a revolving door the in the past few years: Culver, Cates, Jacobs, O'Quinn, Little,??? Who will be next? Wasn't Lacy "asked" to retire?

Elizabethton School System has SADLY become a joke. The only way it may get any better is to vote in a entire new School Board. For that matter a new City Council and County Commissioners as well.

Thanks for clearing that up about Eddie Pless. I heard wrong. I wish him well whatever his new job is. I'm excited Randy Little will be EHS principal. I love him! He was a terrific World History teacher to my kids. Thanks again for the info.

OQuinn is taking Eddie Pless's old job at Tn Tech center. Randy Little wont do well at EHS. He has a pretty checkered history.

Does anyone know for sure that Mr. Little is going to the high school as principal, or is that pure speculation?

Speculation, but with school starting there really isnt time to look outside the system and of those within the system there are very few qualified to take it. Ed has wanted Randy Little down there; the last time Randy's "past" kept him from getting it.

The effort to keep Randy Little out of the EHS Principal's job was successful when Alexander fired Dr Edwards but it seems Alexander has forgotten about Mr. Little's involvement with a EHS teenage girl. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE PARENTS OF ELIZABETHTON ALLOWING THIS TO HAPPEN. What a shameful school board we have. Cooter, Booher and our fine High Sheriff all three know about Little's background but yet they sit on their hands. UNBELIEVEABLE !

I don't care what rumors you might have heard about Randy Little. He was an excellent World History teacher, and he will make an excellent EHS principal.
Dr. Edwards should never have been principal. We should keep the job of EHS principal in the Elizabethton/EHS family.

I agree that there is a real problem with administrator turnover in Elizabethton. I think that the administrators need higher pay. I checked this out and they are making about $20,000 less than neighboring school systems. Like it or not, the school board must pay more if they are going to have stability in the schools. More pay will help the school board attract and keep better candidates.

This is ridiculous and cruel. I can't believe people don't have the decency to just talk to someone in person anymore or admit to their accusations. As for Randy Little, he is a great man who has worked diligently and always done what was best for his school system with no need for a thank you. We all know he loved teaching, for once why not realize he left that job to help serve his school system in need during the middle of the year. The rumors these people have posted are just that, rumors..malicious ones at that. Mr. Little has always just done his job and devoted his remaining time to his daughter. Leave this man alone, he does a great job and makes the environment your children are in a more pleasant place. He is a dad and knows the importance of a fulfilling and encouraging learning experience for our future generations. If you must have these petty forums, stick to the topic. Slanderers who attack the good name and reputation of this man don't have a leg to stand on in the end.

The rightful person will take place at the high school, and the teachers and principal will work together to help 2011-2012 be a great year.
