......I reckon if CMS wants school superintendent Terry Grier, they can have him.

But no matter which candidate gets the job, it won't be easy.

Former Gov. Jim Martin:

"We're a tough community. We've brought in a lot of people with high hopes, then sniped at them 'til we break them down."

Margaret Carnes, spokesperson for the nonprofit Charlotte Advocates for Education:

"If, in fact, it is an outsider, they better be ready to walk on water."

I think it's fair to question whether or not Grier can handle the job. It just depends on which version moves on to Charlotte: The version that, for the most part, coddles our school board, or the version that stood up to Guilford County commissioners last week.

Groups of parents attempting to play hardball politics is one thing; a school board that plays hardball politics is something quite different.
