Written by 

rodentThe New Orleans Parish  School Superintendent Darryl Kilbert has issued a statement concerning food safety and quality in relationship to a television news report by WDSU.

Here is Kilbert’s statement:

“I want to reassure the parents and students in the Orleans Parish School System that we place our highest priority on creating a safe environment at each of our schools. That priority extends to the cleanliness of our food facilities and the quality of food served in our schools. The two traditional schools cited by DHH in the WDSU-TV report were inspected in May 2011.         

In the rare instance where deficiencies are discovered through inspections of our cafeterias and food service facilities, our staff moves quickly to remediate them as quickly and thoroughly as possible. In the cases pointed out by your station today, we conducted follow-up investigations and identified areas where remedies could be instituted quickly. At the time of the inspections where serious situations were cited, such as roaches on the premises, there were no students present.

Orleans Parish School Board schools have a well earned reputation for academic excellence and for creating safe learning environments. We are proud of the achievements of our students, including the highest graduation rate in Louisiana, and we are doing everything in our power to ensure a continuation of our progress in the future.”

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
