Alarming to read in the Commercial Appeal’s reporting of the meeting between teachers and Memphis City Schools Superintendent Kriner Cash that teachers are not allowed to talk to the media. ‘”I’m just a nobody,” said one teacher, saying she couldnt be quoted because she had signed a sheet at the beginning of the year promising not to talk to the media,’ according to the newspaper. How does the superintendent get to superimpose this censuring? Is Cash a dictator? Sounds like it.
