School board watch

Since a couple of people have asked:

Interim Little Rock School Superintendent Linda Watson says the proposal for the district to pay $15,000 and change cheerleader selection procedures at Central High will not be considered at the next school board meeting because the district's attorney has recommended against the settlement. The suit was dismissed, but attorney John Walker has appealed on behalf of the parents of a student who didn't make the squad, former Sen. Bill Walker's daughter.

Also: a school board member tells me it was unlikely the proposal by Walker for a settlement of another, larger case that the district has already won -- the long-running desegregation case -- will be on the action agenda for Thursday.
