I would like to use this post to respond to Pat Morris’s letter in the Baton Rouge Advocate concerning the state of East Baton Rouge Parish Schools. The problem that I am seeing in Baton Rouge is the reason for failing schools is incompetent leadership.
I am not saying this to be racist but what I am seeing is the militant black faction on the School Board and Administration is trying to run the show with the battle for administrators as well as School Board Members to build their little chiefdom.
It was not that long ago the EBR Schools enjoyed wonderful leadership under Dr. Bernie Weiss but it seems to me that the game of power will bankrupt the EBR school system. That is my take; I am going to provide the link for you all to read the editorial. http://theadvocate.com/news/opinion/3020589-123/letters-lets-reclaim-our-schools
