Bobby New's Premature Negotiation?
Did I miss something? We've been told that the Fayetteville School Board has not made any decision about how or where to construct a new high school. We have been told that again and again as a majority of the people who have appeared before the board to express an opinion have argued for keeping the high school in central Fayetteville.
So why was Fayetteville Superintendent Bobby New meeting yesterday to discuss the sale of the present 40-acre high school campus to the University of Arkansas? If it means nothing, then why are UA administrators planning to present the proposal to the University of Arkansas System Board of Trustees at its September 21st meeting in Fayetteville?
This is sounding like a done deal. It also sounds as if the Fayetteville School Board has not been honest with local residents and school patrons.
