We keep hearing from EPISD that they want community input in the selection of school principals.
In fact the district creates a separate committee for each principal being selected.
We spoke the other day with a lady who has served in the past on two of these principal selection committees.
She told us that the committee is allowed to observe the questioning of the top three (chosen by the district) candidates.
Observe is the operative word here. The committee members are not allowed to ask questions of the candidates. The questions are asked by a district employee.
This situation is one more example of our government agencies pretending to do things that they do not.
We deserve better
