I agree Superintendent Vitti is taking bold steps to change the culture of DCPS. Some of the principals should have been shown the door long ago, instead of sitting around collecting a check and letting the teachers and students fail. School violence and crime is still a major issue here at DCPS and while Vitti has funded more security, I still don't see the same level of expertise behind addressing this concern. Throwing more money at the problem doesn't solve it and student misconduct, crime and violence are a major reason why our schools are still struggling. It has to be all or nothing to help all of our schools.

More of the same....And we call this great leadship? Tuesday, June 11, 2013 LaTonya Parker gets the boot Iranetta Wright gets a promotion, what’s wrong with this picture? 5 years ago Iranetta Wright became the principal of Andrew Jackson High School. The school earned an F that year (and in her third year too) and all the FCAT scores dropped from the previous year. Fast forward 5 years and she is now one of the districts 4 area chiefs. What did she have that Latonya Parker of John E. Ford doesn’t have? Mrs. Parker became the principal of John E. Ford this school year and after one year on the job she’s now out. During the public comment session of last nights school board meeting, Robert Slama, a Ford parent, spoke against the School Board removing Parker and he mentioned that 2012-13 was Parker’s first year as Ford principal. His cries went unheeded though. Which begs the question how come Parker didn’t get another year or another three years like Wright did? My bet is friends in high places.
