I know Mrs. IH Principal is taking another position and leaving on her own accord. I don't blame her. She can't win in her scenario.

Mrs. MLK Principal was offered a higher position.

I heard they're getting rid of them because of the test scores. They're wanting to find new people to help raise the scores.

The middle school as well? We were thinking about moving there and as a parent was interested in the school system.

All about the test scores.... If there low your out! Wonder who will take the challenge and want to lead a school that is over 90% poverty and 45% minority like MLK and IH? How many principals will this make for CCMS over the past few years?

SC and Holiday principals are retiring. MLK, IH, and CCMS were all asked to resign or take a demotion for low test scores. They will all receive jobs in the district. School politics at its best.

I think they should hire a black at MLK to represent equality and black leadership. Blacks.

Yep the principal is black I think this time they need to hire a white woman cause all they teach these kids at this school is Martin Luther king all the time my kids come home from school singing, sing about Martin, sing about caring, sing about peace all around the world. No wounder their test scores are so low they are to busy teaching about Martin Luther king then teaching these kids their abc and 123

I also feel just because a school is named after a black guy they should not teach my children all about him all day everyday my kids need an education in a school where they should be learning important things like reading, writing, counting, adding, etc cause after all they can't take that stuff with them to middle school, high school, and collage, I'm really wanting my kids to learn the important things in school.

So glad Holiday is hiring a new principal. Mrs. Shields is so outdated and even a racist. This is 2013, not 1950. This woman just doesn't get it. She's a poor excuse for a role model!

I wish they would worry less about tests and more about the kids actually learning. Even when they bring up the scores, more than half these kids still cannot write or spell correctly, they don't know how to multiply or divide, and then they kick them on over to the middle schools without the basics under their belts. Test the middle and high school kids all you want, but damn just teach the elementary kids properly in the first place instead of trying to cram test questions into them hoping it will make your school "look good".
