Teachers vote against leaders of Rhode Island School for Deaf

(Providence-AP) -- There’s dissent in the ranks at the Rhode Island School for the Deaf.
The school’s teacher association has taken a vote of no confidence in the director and the board of trustees. The group claims faculty morale is at an all-time low.
Teachers also say neither director Reginald Redding nor the board have provided the school with a sense of leadership, and have NOT defined its mission.
Redding became director in September 2001, and is the first deaf person to lead the school in its history.
Teachers say they’re worried about layoffs and a reorganization at the Providence school of 160 students.
Some board members acknowledged problems, such as unfilled openings on the board and poor recording of minutes of meetings.
