Verletta White should not be given top BCPS job

Both interim superintendent Verletta White and former superintendent Dallas Dance worked as consultants to travel twice a year to conferences where they and other school administrators from around the nation would meet privately in three hour sessions with executives of companies that produce education technology for school districts.

Both former Baltimore County superintendent Dallas Dance and now his interim replacement, Verletta White, failed to report monies received from Education Research & Development Institute as required by Baltimore County schools. Ms. White says she didn’t consider those funds “earned income” and promises that subsequent statements will reflect any such payments (“Baltimore County school leaders Verletta White, Dallas Dance were paid by tech industry group,” Nov. 8).

She shouldn’t have to make any subsequent statements. Although she seems to be the favored choice for permanent superintendent, that failure and her weak rationalization would seem to be grounds for her dismissal and replacement. At the very least, her excuse doesn’t speak well for her intelligence.
