We are very fortunate to have Dr. Carmen Coleman serve as superintendent of the Danville school system. I have served on the Danville School Education Foundation for almost two years, and that experience has allowed me significant first hand knowledge of Dr. Coleman’s outstanding abilities, intelligence and enthusiasm. She is an excellent superintendent.
As an attorney, I hope all of The Advocate-Messenger’s readers understand that the recent article regarding litigation involving the Danville school board and Dr. Coleman only reports one side of a dispute. The article only explains what the “plaintiff” writes in their “complaint.” By its very nature, a legal “complaint” is completely one-sided.
I sincerely hope that it will be reported with the same prominent front page coverage and headlines when the complaint is dismissed. Based on the removal of this lawsuit to federal court, dismissal of the litigation is very likely.
Thank you for the opportunity to explain the one-sided nature of the initial document in a lawsuit and for the opportunity to recognize the excellent leadership Dr. Coleman has brought to education in our community.
