Rage and Even Anger Over Plano ISD Layoffs

I’m so angry I could spit. Plano ISD is a total disaster. I mean, a $14 million budget deficit? This thing is so mismanaged that every member of the school board ought to quit. I don’t know who the superintendent is, but he is clearly incompetent. Okay, I just looked it up. Dr. Doug Otto is the superintendent. Unbelievable. And he’s white! Where’s the outrage from the black community?!

Okay, okay. But you get my point, right? It ain’t just Dallas ISD.

On a more serious note, the wife of one of my co-working FrontBurnervians is a librarian with the Plano ISD — the very group of workers who will take the brunt of the “reduction in force.” This is going to be tough on them and on everyone involved, both the people losing their jobs and those who have to make the determination about who goes and who stays. May everyone handle their roles as gracefully as possible. Good luck.
