Waiting for a Superintendent who wants to live in Dallas

While others are "Waiting for Superman", a myth that never existed, I'm waiting for a Superintendent who wants to live in Dallas.

How strange that Dallas ISD elected Trustees would now bring forth a policy that would allow even the Superintendent to live in another city on Dallas taxpayer money while making decisions about the education of children in a city not good enough to live in.

How strange - after the current Superintendent declared himself to be the "perfect fit" for the Las Vegas (Clark County) public school system and Trustees rushed to increase the liability of Dallas taxpayers by over one million dollars - now a new policy comes forth that would allow even a Superintendent of Dallas ISD to live outside the city.

What is really going on here?

I don't really know the real story behind this strange and peculiar new policy push to enable any five Trustees to make a special arrangement with a Superintendent in his contract - even though the official school district policy requires the same Superintendent to live in the Dallas community.

I only know that a Superintendent who does not want to live in the city of Dallas is a Superintendent who should not be here.
