When she ran for her seat I was pretty unimpressed. The more she has fought to get this board to do the right thing by the students by fighting against the decrease in funding for magnet schools and learning centers; or for the citizens of Dallas by fighting efforts to circumvent the democratic process by extending their terms of office, Dr. Ranger has shown wisdom, courage and great judgement.
Dr. Ranger quite suspiciously lost her job recently at the Dallas Community College District. More than a few believe its because she has been such a contrarian on the board.
She's my kind of contrarian.
A look at the popular poll shows I'm not the only one who feels that way. But then again, we don't get a vote. The trustees choose their president (sigh)...
