Milton Passed Over by Little Rock
The Little Rock School District has a new superintendent, and it's not Dr. Walter Milton Jr. The board voted 6-1 to offer the job to Dr. Dexter Suggs, who currently works as the chief of staff for Indianapolis Public Schools. Suggs has accepted the job.
The Little Rock School District faced a lot of resistance from the public after naming Milton as a finalist there. A petition was started to have him removed from the list of candidates, and the board was flooded with calls and e-mails.
Milton was at the Springfield school board meeting Tuesday night. In the meantime, he will be looking for a new job.
