Here is a report filed by Lola Alapo of the News Sentinel from the recent Knox County School Board Retreat. "On accompanying Superintendent Jim McIntyre on school surprise visits, Karen Carson said there are schools she plans to visit "and others I don't want to."" So, this explains why she left early from a public forum last week concerning the creation of a chapter of Parents for Public Schools. She doesn't want to commit herself fully to the task at hand. She believes in instructing the Superintendent do as we (board members) say not as we do. Maybe citizens within Carson's district should begin a Recall Karen Carson campaign so that the community can select a board member that is fully engaged in improving the schools and working as partners with Dr. McIntyre.
