Interesting school gossip floated over the transom today. It was that some members of the Pulaski County School Board wanted to hire Roy Brooks, fired as Little Rock school superintendent and later pushed out from his job as leader of the e-Stem charter school, as the Pulaski County School District superintendent.
Two-word response from Tim Clark, the Pulaski School Board president: "Absolutely ridiculous." He guessed that the rumor arose from a passing mention of Brooks' name by someone during one of many meetings the Board has held in the so-far unsuccessful search for a new leader.
