At a meeting, La Marque school board President Nakisha Paul recently told about 100 district employees that the school board has “got your back” and “don’t tell me that La Marque is not on the road to recovery” (“School board president urges staff to help end state oversight,” The Daily News, March 7).
It amazes me that Paul could stand before a group of employees with a straight face and essentially beg them to work harder to help the school board and the district clean up the mess they created.
Are the La Marque Independent School District trustees really serious enough about turning our school district around or will history prove once again that they will risk losing our school district by not forcing school board secretary Shirley Fanuiel to resign?
Local activists and their supporters need to quit calling on the community to help the board members get out of the hole that they helped dig and get busy cleaning up their own mess. Now, who really has whose back?
