Board fires schools chief after Parkland massacre report

Summary by Ground News
The superintendent of Florida’s second largest school district was fired after a late-night motion brought up by a board member appointed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis following a grand jury report into the Parkland school massacre. The board voted 5-4 to fire Broward Schools Superintendent Vickie Cartwright, after Broward school board member Daniel Foganholi brought up the surprise motion Monday night. Cartwright, who has held the position since the summer of 2021, didn’t comment. The district has been embroiled in controversy since a grand jury investigation into the shooting also uncovered unrelated allegations of mismanagement. A former official was charged with contract-rigging, a former superintendent with perjury and four school board members were eventually removed.
