Superintendent Grenita Lathan didn't mask her disappointment to widespread community reaction in the aftermath of District 150's investigation into testing irregularities at Charter Oak Primary School and the subsequent reassignment of its principal and the transfer of two special education teachers.Source
Monday night,after the board meeting Lathan sat-down with reporters and made the following statement:
"I'm disappointed because I don't believe people want District 150 to succeed."
People don’t want District 150 to succeed? WHAT? I'm sorry, but that statement makes absolutely no sense. Why wouldn't people who live in this community; people who hope to live in this community; people who own homes in this community; people in this community who have children who need an education, want OUR local school District to be the absolute best it can be?
Me thinks the good Dr. is feeling somewhat victimized and what she really feels like saying is:
People don’t want Grenita Lathan to succeed.
Why would the Community of Peoria, Illinois ALLOW the School Board to pay her over $200,000 per year and bring a contingency of folks from North Carolina to Peoria, if we didn't want OUR school District to succeed. Chile please.
