Please tell me this is just a nightmare and this woman whom the public has re-elected to the Board of Education isn't really preventing massive improvements to a damaged school system!! Unconscionable!!

Every day of delay is another day the Youngstown District students go without leadership and a plan for their learning. Move on, Ms. Kimble and let the commission do its job.

Give it up and put the students first for once

Especially when there are "rumblings" of impropriety - the Vindicator needs to stop rubber stamping incumbents. Vindicator endorsements no longer have the influence they once did.

Yes, a CEO will be hired - but this job is much bigger than one person. It will be necessary for the CEO (and I love the fact that most people think it will be a man) to build a team of people who will help to implement a strategy for success and to be committed to the success of students attending the city schools. It will be accomplished one child at a time, one family at a time, one neighborhood at a time, on all sides of town - and not overnight. The Distress Commission has excellent people on it who know business and education - now let's allow them to do their work.

I do not know enough about the details to judge the situation. If the comment made by vinglass is true - I can understand why there had to be some quality control. If Second Harvest Foodbank requested an audit and none was forthcoming, that is another red flag. Hopefully now that the personnel difficulties are addressed, the facility can go back to serving the poorest among us and making sure no one goes hungry.

I think there is much more to this story than anyone is saying. Something happened to cause a fifteen year employee to resign suddenly. That appears to be the root cause of this whole problem. Dig a little deeper.

I wish I could say I was surprised - but this is what the voters wanted

Seriously??????????? What he did to that child was unconscionable. It was so brutal that had Raymond Fife lived his quality of life would have been seriously and negatively impacted. This has gone on way too long.
