I am highly disappointed in Lauderdale County Superintendent of Education David Little for canceling Joey Knight's contract.

I am a mother of three children who attend Southeast Lauderdale schools and one child who is up-and-coming to attend Southeast. Joey Knight is a very good Christian man who cares very deeply for these children. He goes above and beyond his duties in so many ways.

Mr. Knight has personally been an inspiration to me and my family. He has helped my children in so many ways. When others wanted to quit, he kept on and showed them that someone did care for them. If it wasn't for Mr. Knight, my oldest son would probably not be attending public school at this time. He took the time needed to understand and help him. He not only is our principal; he is our friend.

Whatever the reasons are for not renewing his contract, the school board needs to rethink this issue or ask the parents of Southeast Elementary if they would chose to keep him. I am very sure it would be overwhelming — yes.

There are several I could nominate to be exterminated from employment from Southeast Lauderdale schools, but Joey Knight is not one of them.

I am nearly in tears writing this letter. If anyone agrees with me and would like to do a petition or something to try to keep Joey Knight as our principal, please e-mail me at Ashelby7376@msn.com and we will do something.

I am really heartbroken at the actions of the superintendent of schools. These actions were obviously not thought through. I hope everyone writes in and voices their opinion on this matter. We don't have very long. Don't delay; do it today. Our children's future depends on this.
