Dr. Thompson can not be surprised by this move with thwo Board members that are now present who weere not a part of the original firing/hiring scheme; and one of those new members is a former Principal that Thompson "retired". Secondly, the man has ben given short shriff for the fiscal savings made because his style was intimidating and smug while bringing in an entourage from Illinois that really did not add to his credibility. Many of the new additions to Collier Admin were pals and we already had already seen where that had led in the past. In short, he provided positive change in fiscal matters, no meaningful changes in scholl based leadership appointments, an adverse change in the manner in which he dealt with school based personnel, and when questioned, his patronizing tone, dismissive manner overshadowed his message content. RIP, and good riddance.
