John White's visit

Posted: Updated:

Louisiana Schools Superintendent John White paid a special visit to Shreveport today. About fifteen community leaders along with the superintendent met in a closed door meeting to discuss the direction for the district's school at the Mavice Colley Wallette Branch of the Shreve Memorial Library System on Hearne Avenue. The meeting was set up in response to what some community leaders say are rumors about a state takeover of Caddo schools. "We're hearing some mixed messages and I'm tired of the mixed messages that's why I want to make sure that I kind of facilitate and invite some folks to this meeting so I can hear from the horses mouth as they say in the country, so we'll really know what going on", President of the NAACP Lloyd Thompson said. Superintendent John White said he's here to talk with leaders about the best way to move the district forward. "You have to hear the voices of those who know the community and so for us this is learning and we learned a lot today about the community and that helps us make a better plan with the community," White said.
