Mike Miles Still Has a Job. The Dallas ISD board of trustees put it to a vote. Only three of eight trustees voted to oust the super. Lew Blackburn was one of those who voted against Miles, saying, “The actions of our superintendent that has brought us to this point is not good for Dallas ISD and is not good for the city.” The votes of the three anti-Miles trustees is duly noted. Now let us hope the rest of the trustees is up to the task of improving education in the district.
