Protestors Prepare for this Sunday as Dallas ISD Superintendent Mike Miles Reaches Out to Churches
The Rev. Donald Parish Sr. didn’t get the memo a few weeks back from Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price who advised 75 pastors to block Dallas ISD Superintendent Mike Miles’ outreach to their churches.
Not that it would have mattered, Parish is opening the doors at True Lee Missionary Baptist Church to Miles this Sunday. He said that Miles will attend a community meeting at 10 a.m., before the church worships at 11 a.m. Miles will have up to 20 minutes to say what he wants before a Q&A session is held, Parish said.
Price has said that Miles is not the right person to lead the school district and should go back to Colorado Springs, where he last worked. He wrote his letter to the pastors after several told him that Miles wanted to visit their churches.
“To me, it just makes good sense for us to have face-to-face interaction with him so we can find out what’s going on,” Parish said. “I reached out to Mike Miles. We have a right to hold our superintendent accountable to this congregation.”
