Dust-Up At Dore

In case you hadn't noticed, there's a dust-up over what's going on at Dore Elementary school that's been taking place on the blog over the past month, prompted by an April 16 post about report card pickup days.

Far as I can tell, the dispute centers around allegations that the principal is authoritarian and the LSC is rubber- stamping things. Plus something about the over-emphasis on sports at this Southwest Side school.

But there are also those on the blog that defend what's going at Dore, so it's not a one-sided argument. And indeed, the young principal was listed as one of the best in the city by one blog reader way back in December 2006.

Check it all out here and keep the comment thread going if you have anything to offer. I obviously know nothing.
