Beleaguered superintendent to fight for job

GOODING -- The beleaguered superintendent of the state School for the Deaf and Blind plans to take legal action to keep his job.

Angel Ramos says he is rejecting the state Board of Education's office for two months' pay of $14,000 and a neutral letter of recommendation if he quits now.

He says he's done nothing wrong and his reputation is worth more than $14,000. Ramos says he's been told he'll be fired in two weeks if he doesn't quit.

The board isn't commenting. Ramos says the only thing he's been told is that he isn't cooperating with a new management improvement plan. But he says the latest status report shows the plan is being implemented.
