Ballotpedia's school board candidate survey
Charlie C.E. McAdoo was the Zone 2 representative on the Little Rock School District Board of Education in Arkansas from 2013 to January 29, 2015. The district's school board was dissolved by the Arkansas State Board of Education on that day following poor academic performance in the district. Community member Doris Pendleton and former board members Dianne Curry, McAdoo and Jim Ross are suing Arkansas Commissioner of Education Tony Wood and the State Board of Education over the decision.[1] McAdoo would have next been up for election in 2016.

Arming employees

In early 2013, the Little Rock School District School Board addressed the issue of hiring armed security guards at district buildings. School board Vice President Greg Adams, urged further consideration of the issue. "“It concerns me that if we focus on something that is so unusual and so rare that we may take our eyes off of other areas,” he said, adding that students are more likely to die from suicide or drowning than from a school shooting."[4] The Arkansas Attorney General condemned the practice of arming teachers in order to improve school safety.[5]
