Before we start this mess all over about a new school superintendent, will any of the people who picked the last superintendent please sit down and shut up? We already are hearing what a great job Dwight Jones has done, but he didn’t finish the job.

Now we have to spend thousands of dollars and start a new search, and what are we going to get this time? Your guess is as good as mine. Maybe we will score big, or maybe we will go backward.

Since we are talking about education of the children of Las Vegas, has anybody ever thought of reaching into the pool of our schoolteachers and asking one of them to lead this district?

I’m not in the know of the teachers, but somewhere in Clark County there is a teacher or many teachers with a great deal of knowledge of what’s going on, and I would expect they could steer the Clark County School District back to education and not politics.

This time, let’s stay at home, save money, pick a superintendent out of the ranks and give them a chance to lead this school district.

The past picks have not worked and have cost the taxpayers a bundle.
