Yesterday, we posted a piece critical of Mehlville Superintendent Dr. Eric Knost's blog on a local website.
Today, Dr. Knost visited with one of the MCTA's editors and made a strong case for harmony among the various interest groups in South County. We very impressed by Dr. Knost's sincerity and desire to work together for the improvement of the Mehlville School District.
The MCTA has only sought a spot at the table to propagate our commitment to small accountable government. We will again make our case to the voters in the next school board election. It was not our desire to make Dr. Knost our whipping boy. We support his efforts to cut the rancor and work together for a consensus in which all parties can be heard. We want to give Dr. Knost a chance.
That is the reason we have removed yesterday's post. The MCTA reciprocates Dr. Knost's bold effort to reach out and tone down the rhetoric. We would like to see him succeed.
