NC: Still Waiting for New Director

The North Carolina School for the Deaf in Morganton is still looking for a director. And it has been nearly a year since the last director stepped down. Parents of students complained Linda Lindsey did not know American Sign Language. Some students and staff were suspended after she stopped students from holding a protest.

In the meantime, the school’s principal, Janet McDaniel, is filling in. State officials say the search will begin again after the new governor takes office.
