But the salary listed, $260,638, is what the LRSD
spent on superintendent salary and benefits in 2014-15, and that would have gone to Dexter Suggs, who resigned in April 2015 amid a plagiarism scandal.
Kurrus, 61, a Little Rock attorney, longtime public school advocate and former LRSD
school board member, was appointed to lead the troubled district earlier this year by state Education Commissioner Johnny Key after the state took control of the district in January.
So Suggs, kept in place by the Department of Education after it seized control of the LRSD
, is gone, as he should be.
It is undeniable it was student performance, not the chamber, that brought the LRSD
