According to Lansing school board members, Dr. Wallace interviewed on Thursday. He is one of two finalists.

Board President Hugh Clarke tells News 10 the board was not informed of the Pontiac job until early this week and that they were "caught by surprise."

Dr. Wallace nor the Pontiac School District could be reached for comment.

    Let Wallace go! He hasn't done much for the Lansing schools anyway. You can get a better answer from talking to a block wall!

    Martha, you say that we never gave TC Wallace a chance? Umm...hello, he had TWO YEARS to do something and what did he do? Drive the district into the ground, play the race card, and spend loads of money that the district doesn't have.

    Lansing Schools will continue to suffer as long as the have winers and big mouths who spout without true knowledge. You naysayers never gave him a chance and I don't blame him. I would milk you and run too. Until you learn how to support, shout up and take what you deserve

    Remember when people from Mt Clemens told us how wonderful TC was? Well, Pontiac, 'he is a wonderful guy. You are lucky to get him. We wish you all the best.' Whew, that was a close call. We could have been stuck with him for alot longer. But I did get a laugh seeing that Hugh Clark couldn't keep that shocked look off of his face when he was interviewed. You know, Hugh is/was TC's greatest advocate. lol

    Good Riddance T.C. as far as I can tell you haven't done anything anyway. I hope Pontiac knows what kind of person they are hiring, take the money and run as soon as things get tough.

    When you hire someone from outside the company, you lose loyalty.

    I Think this is typical of the people lansing schools hire and why the district is such a mess. First of all he was the 2nd choice (first choice with-drew after meeting school board) But this really shows T.C.'s character, he is either bailing out of his 4yr contract early because the ship is sinking and the choices are getting too hard or he is greedy and 175,000 a yr is not enough money. Now if he dosen't get this job what will happen? Do you think that people are going to trust anything that he has to say? A man is only good as his word and trying to break a contract does not look good for you T.C. I can only hope that the school board does not give him a big raise as they did banks on his way out the door.

    Really! This guy is trying to leave now! What has he done with this district anyways? I say leave! Leave soon or kick is butt out! Hire someone within the district that knows and understands the people! If he were Bush I would have impeached his butt long ago! The LSD needs all the help it can get. Schools are losing its students to outside schools due to schools of choice and old materials! We have to invest in our children and support the LSD with a new Superintendent! I believe! Do you?

    GOOD RIDDANCE! TC Wallace has done nothing for our district except mess around, waste money, and screw everything up. He was just another one of E. Sharon Banks' cronies.
