It seems, from over here in Nashville, that the Memphis area has a lot of cleaning up to do. I know those without sin... That being understood they could probably start with the cleaning chemical contract that was awarded outside of proper channels. Thaddeus Matthews has details and this admonishment for the Memphis City Schools Superintendent.
Since no one wants to say it, I will, Carol Johnson you screwed up, you have allowed your administration to break the law. District policy REQUIRES board approval for purchases of more than $5000. State law also REQUIRES competitive bidding in such instances. So when our children don't follow the rules, what do you tell them? Don't do as I do, do what I say. Maybe its time for the city of Memphis to investigate what really going on in the system, and find out why some teachers are calling Memphis City Schools, The Minnesota Mafia.
