Blanche Ely High school in Broward County switches to dual prin...

Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Two principals apparently are better than one, or at least that's the thinking behind a district decision to double up on that job at another Broward County high school.

why not try to use that money to pay teachers in the summer to get the reading endorsement no matter what they teach.
and Ely is surplusing teachers? isn't there a teacher shortage?
To be fair, the Ely community tries to run the school . They want sports, bands, and freebies. Anyone who has come in there with a different attitude has been run out by the community.

The district has found a black person to do their job. Mr. Edmond you are the trap the way you are bring down the educational programs for our youth of the future. Of course you are smiling due to the fact that you or your butties and friends children does not attend Blanche Ely High. Blanche Ely has produce many professional graduate in the pass. Just to name a few doctors,lawyers,teachers,NFL,N BA players and LPN thur the nursing program @ BEHS. Mr.Edmond don't continue to fail the students @ BEHS they are hurting for strong leadership. Mr.Edmond PLEASE Don't continue to DRIVE your certified staff away. WE WANT QUALITY NOT YOUR FRIENDS.

Mr. Edmond, get your nose out of Carlton Jackson's face and notice real certified and qualified people around you. How dare you take him with you as a Behavior Dean. And you have the nerve to have him teaching 4 blocks of behavior change? He repeated 8th grade twice and has he shown you any degrees or certificates lately? Tell him to stop calling my bother for answers to the Social Studies Exam.
Mr. Jackson needed to renew his Certiciation by June 30, 2007 good luck I hope you pass the test no cheating.

MAYBE SOMEONE CAN HELP ME OUT WITH THIS ONE. WHY WOULD YOU RUN AWAY A GOOD MATH TEACHER AND HEAD BOYS BASKETBALL COACH THAT HAD THE ATTENTION OF THE STUDENTS IN THE CLASSROOM AND ON THE BASKETBALL COURT. ALSO, THE HEAD GIRLS BASKETBALL COACH WAS THE COACH OF THE YEAR AND THERE WERE WORDS STATING THAT HIS JOB WAS ON THE LINE. THE GUIDANCE COUNSELOR MADE SURE THAT THE STUDENTS WERE ON TRACK FOR GRADUATION. THERE WAS A HEAD ATHLETIC DIRECTOR IN 2002 – 2004 THAT DID A TREMENDOUS JOB SO WHOM EVER STATED THAT IT WAS THE ASSISTANT ATHLETIC DIRECTOR I HOPE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE SAME PERSON BECAUSE SHE WAS THE HEAD. WHATEVER HAPPENED TO HER? OH MY BAD, SHE WAS A CERTIFIED TEACHER AND SHE WASN’T IN THE PRINCIPAL’S CIRCLE OF FRIENDS. DUMB ME!

Mr Edmonds ran out a great Athletic Director ,,her name was Ms. Davis-Twitty.
She came in with a vision to shape up the program, hold students accountable for grades and discipline,and did not cow-tow to the local community with their unreasonable demands such as getting in to games for free (a FHSAA violation)

She is a certified teacher as well as a former state track champion, olympic contender, and successful coach. She ran great athletic programs at a few Broward middle schools. She was replaced by one of Edmond's cronies--a man that has no athletic background in schools, and reading this board, it seems like he has not passed the teacher's test.

Antics like this will bring a school down. Mr Edmond wants to be surrounded by his buddies that will never go against the grain, because they "owe" him for getting there in the first place. He has run out a few great coaches....and more to come. Coach Randall please do not leave!

Glad to know Pompano has a Millionaire's row. Just what are the cross streets? Having a few pricey homes in the community does not cover for the majority of surrounding poor families.

So the schools need qualified, well-compensated administrators. It is fair to pay them a competitive wage, but must they be called principals?
What's wrong with that?
