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.

Exactly..... This is what Dr King's dream was supposed to be about.
The figures you cite show that initial candidate selection was based on demographics. When qualifications for the performance of the position's duties were examined, it happened that 3 white males rose to the top.
My question to Ms Caldwell-Jones -- where is the unfairness here? Minorities WERE a part of the candidate pool.
Perhaps she should call a press conference with Ako Abdul Samad (not sure of the spelling, but it's the skull cap dude who shows up at just about every central Iowa leftist photo op) to further decry this outrage.

Spot on with your analysis.

You spelled the name correctly, but Ako is not cool.
