Dunbar leaders bounced, what next?
My colleague Bill Turque has broken the story that, as I feared, the Friends of Bedford group has been removed as administrators of Dunbar High. (See long post directly below for details on that clash.)
I will have more to say about this in my Monday Metro section column. For now, I welcome comment from people who know Dunbar emailed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We should also say a few prayers for Stephen Jackson, last year's principal at Dunbar, whose firing by the Bedford group apparently precipitated these events.
Turque tells me Jackson is being put back in charge, which means if test scores slump and the security situation doesn't improve, it is going to be all on him, and the people who put him back on the job. Let's hope he and they succeed.
