CCSD School Board Faces Lack of Effective Leadership

Remember the "gang who couldn't shoot straight" when selecting a new superintendent for the Charleston County Schools? 

Well, they're back.

Or, at least, that same leadership was re-elected this month: Cindy Bohn Coats, well-meaning but ineffective chairwoman, and Chris Staubes, vice chairman. At least three board members--Miller, Ducker, and Collins--thought Coats's continued leadership ill-advised, but the majority ruled.

The truth is, Coats is probably the only member who is willing to spend enough time on the job. Let's hope the coming year shows improvement over the last.
