LETTER: Hiring search agency sends wrong message

To the Editor:

It looks like the Lee County School Board is ready and willing to spend several thousand dollars to hire an external search committee to scour the country for a new school superintendent.

This is a slap in the face to all qualified educators currently serving in the local school system. The message that it is sending to them is, "You are good enough to follow, but not good enough to lead."
