In a year where we know more funding isn't coming, this is extra bad news.
Watching this DISD Board Meeting has been wild. This is a long one. Click for quotes and important happenings.
You have to take it a day at a time. Each day is new and different with its own challenges and rewards.
A few days ago Superintendent Hinojosa was on campus smiling and taking pictures with the principal and the students. Today? There's no sub in the classroom of a teacher that had the day off and the kids destroyed the classroom.
Did the sub run away? I've seen it happen. Not really the important part of the story.
Do you call that luck? It could have gone the way of the Miles visit to Dade where there were some jobs in jeopardy in the following days. Lucky for the teachers the superintendent just so happened to miss this by a few days.
There's a lot of good that happens day to day in Dallas ISD, but when this stuff happens on a Friday, it really puts a damper on the weekend.
How is DISD Superintendent Hinojosa doing by the way? We set up a poll a few months back and apparently most people think DISD is still headed in the wrong direction or mostly the same with him as it was under Miles. Maybe only people that are upset vote in polls, or maybe there's something to it...
