Ears on the Board of Education: May 26, 2022
by Diane Payne
For Dr. Hite’s last meeting as superintendent, Board President Joyce Wilkerson introduced a slideshow of his accomplishments through the decade. (Those viewing remotely couldn’t hear so it may have had an audio component.) Mayor Kenney appeared in person to honor Hite. Going-away tributes accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative. Hite achieve some success on the surface, and in the interest of those holding the seats of political and financial power. The budget, at least for now, is in better shape. But the people on the front lines can attest that those successes came at a price to students, staff, and families.
