I never write to the editor, but the search for a Clark County School District superintendent and a state superintendent of public instruction has stirred my interest.
We should rid ourselves of these so-called qualified educators who come here from faraway places. They haven’t lived here and, judging by their actions, don’t care about what happens here.
Nevada has a first-class college and university system accompanied by a highly ranked law school. Surely one or two of the other 2 million or so Nevadans are qualified for these two positions. In the Army, when the commander leaves, the second in command takes over.
How about 25-year veteran Pat Skorkowsky for one? School Board President Carolyn Edwards said she wants a rich pool of talent to pull from. That pool is Nevada.
State the qualifications required and put the applications out around the state.
Surely a few qualified, caring Nevadans will show up for the jobs.
