During the public comments section of the Yazoo City Municipal School District's school board meeting last Friday, retired educator Johnny Staples angered at least one school board member who wanted to but was denied permission to respond to Staples' comments.
The only thing Trustee Truvander Kennedy was able to say following Staples' five-minute speech was, “Does anyone know what 'insanity' is?” as other officials said any further response from her would be inappropriate. Prior to Kennedy's remarks, Staples had placed the blame for the community's troubles on past city school boards.
