Teresa Weatherall Neal!?
OMG; say it isn't so, not another dbl'd up surname, vainglorious person.

exactly how many Teresa Neal's are there in G.R. or MI who are public school superintendent's or for that matter, in any other public office?

good ole Terri Lynn Land, give me a freaking break.

while Gov. Granholm didn't do much she least had the decency and self-confidence not to go around with the Jennifer Mulhern Granholm moniker.

get over yourself and get out of your own way; drop garland darlin and just do the job.

What happened to Barney? I moved out of GR a year ago amazing how things never change, oops I guess that is an intentional racist comment, where did they find this one? I'll bet her credentials are the best and I bet she helped another school district change and I'll bet her resume is one of the best in the country like all the rest. I have always wondered how a person aspires to be a school superintendent? And how inept most of them are.

like any clever consultant you negotiate a golden parachute deal up front when everybody is so self assured, so willing and heady to have been blessed with hiring the real messiah this time.
then the the wunderkind begin flinging out their brilliant, tantalizing, progressive ideas plagiarized along the way; each of course requiring a maximum effort on the part of the whole community to succeed.
Then sometime after each crash and burn the super bailouts over more promising territory fully knowing the fault lay with the inept efforts of the floundering citizens.
