Minden businessman John Madden has asked the Webster Parish School Board to look into obtaining unitary status – a move that would mean the system could operate without Federal Court oversight. It was a request also made by Superintendent Steve Dozier during the May 14 WPSB meeting.
"I would like to see y'all change something or at least talk about changing things to move to unitary status and move our school system in the right direction," Madden said during Monday night's meeting. "I don't want to make any one uncomfortable; I know it is a pretentious issue when we talk about black and white issues. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but I do want to address the situation."Subscribe to Read!
