Missouri Board of Education wants to quickly name a new Education Commissioner. Many superintendents around the state want board to a more thorough search because of unique problems facing Missouri schools right now.
President of the Board Peter Herschend expressed that the board of education wants to pick a new Commissioner as soon as possible.
I am trying to get in contact with Herschend to get his reaction to the superintendents comments.
I covered the Health Worker Committee meeting. I'm reaching Missouri's problems with passing medicaid and health worker crisis.
The Affordable Health Care Act may be the most polarizing document in the country's recent history.
Seems as if public officials really aren't in a mood to talk.I've made lots of calls and many have went unanswered, sometimes wonder if its me. I know I've done alot of calling because I'm first name basis with a lot of secretaries now. This unwillingness to talk has thrown off my stories for a while.
Then Cade's Law information, getting information on this bill has been slow, it detrailed my story and put it off for two weeks. I finally could complete the story this week, I hope.........Also getting in-contact with the Saint Louis School District superintendent is like looking for Jimmy Hoffa. Somebody knows where he is, but their not talking.
Any who Normandy School District at first refused to pay its transfer bill and now says it will, lots of indecisive moves from the district I'll see what I can find.
