SOUTH DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Fliers written by people asking for the resignation of Dallas ISD Superintendent Mike Miles were placed on parent’s cars Tuesday at South Dallas’ largest middle school.
Calling Miles as a bully, the fliers come on the heels of a big shakeup at Dade Middle School.
A year ago the school district highlighted the school as the campus of the future for South Dallas. However, Miles named the third principal there since the school’s opening day.Ten teachers, plus Miles’ handpicked principal for 2014 are out. He said poor teaching techniques are the reason why. Miles’ decision reflects poorly on his track record and overall impact on the school, according to some board members.
“This is the fourth principal in two years, and I think you need stability, and how will this impact children with the constant turnover,” said Dallas ISD trustee, Bernadette Nutall.
Miles ordered Nutall to be removed from the Dade campus by DISD police, after she questioned his latest staff change decisions.
Critics have said Miles should be fired for such actions.
But Board President Miguel Solis supports the superintendent.
“You’ve got the superintendent who believes that we’ve hired him to lead us… who believes a serious situation exists at Dade and serious changes must happen,” said Solis.
