Three people are under consideration to be the next Superintendent of the Des Moines Public Schools (DMPS).
However, three board members are not happy that the candidates are white.
Board member: Superintendent selection lacks diversity
What the board did was only look at the resumes of 14 individuals, five of who were not white, the board selected six of those candidates as semifinalists and interviewed them to choose the three finalists.
None of the non white applicants made it to the semifinalist round.
The Des Moines School Board should be a leading example of judging people by the content of their character, not by the color of their skin.
And the scientific community is united in that fact.
It's only lip service and a day off.
