Group to call for superintendent’s resignation
— reported by KHOU CBS Channel 11
A group says it will stage a rally Thursday calling for La Marque Independent School District Superintendent Adrain Johnson to resign.
Trustees are scheduled to discuss Johnson’s contract at a meeting Thursday night.
For months, the loosely affiliated group of taxpayers has leveled charges of inadequate education, racial discrimination and misplaced budgetary values against Johnson and his administration. For the five years he has headed La Marque schools, student test scores have plummeted and teachers are not getting the salary increases necessary to stay competitive, group members argue.
What: La Marque school board meeting.
When: Rally 5:30 p.m.; meeting 7 p.m.
Where: Administration building, 1727 Bayou Road.
