Superintendent Ed Pratt-Dannals passes out parting gifts as he heads out the door.

It started when he insisted the school board create a chief of schools position and promoted Jackie Byrd to it. Along with the title change came a hefty raise. Then he rearranged his cabinet promoting more sycophants and cronies and passing out more raises and finally now he wants to hire Karen Chastain to be the districts lawyer at a cost of nearly 200 thousand dollars, which make the cost of all these moves somewhere around 300k.

Does the superintendent not realize in a matter of months he will no longer have a job? Does he not realize that the city has become wise to his practice of rewarding friends rather than ability?

For shame
