I think he is the man for the job. It is time we had "back bone" in that position.

I have worked with Dr. Duke before, as I was a teacher at NC when he opened up the new campus. He has proven himself in many capacities and has overcome many obstacles. I am sure he will tackle the problems of Natchitoches Parish with the same tenacity as he has always shown.
His record and many areas of expertise will prove to be an asset.
I wish him well with the board he finds himself working with.

What is he up to now? He was a principal at Central when I was in high school.

The board is our next obstacle. We need to weed out the ignorance that plagues the board. I understand having board members who may not have college degrees, but we sure do need to get rid of the ones who do not have high school diplomas.

Who was the teacher over there that was a big Elvis fan? Chris Buzzbee used to lock him in the closet. Was it H. Arthur Dew?

What a joke. All of the finalists were jokes. No wonder Natchitoches can not attract anything but a processing plant to employ chicken pluckers. Louisiana will never be a first rate state until the good ol' boy attitude ends. At one time Mississippi, Alabama, and Arkansas gave Louisiana some competition for being in last place. Now, we are eating their dust and sitting in last place.

This can not be true, the Board ask each candidate to make up a question and then answer it and this Duke person could'nt even do that! If he is superintendent than there is something wrong with you white people. A 70 year old man who isn't even up to date with policies and procedures. This is a DISGRACE!

Well I'm a white person and i agree, If Duke is Superintendent then I am moving my family away from Natchitohces. My kids have been through enough with Elwanda Murphy screwing up the Natch. school system, and now you are bringing in an old fart!

So, your answer is "we screwed the public education system again, and hired an old farr, an old coach, who is part of the white regime, so get use to it"? We are stating our opinion on his previous record, dumbass.
