Six Garland County superintendents file pleading in federal court


GARLAND COUNTY, Ark. (KTHV) - Six Garland County public school districts have filed a pleading in federal court seeking an end to a long-running consent decree that has prohibited student transfers based on public school choice in Garland County. The school districts of Lake Hamilton, Lakeside, Cutter-Morning Star, Jessieville, Fountain Lake, and Mountain Pine seek to set aside the consent decree on the basis that it enforces race-based student assignment provisions from the 1989 Public School Choice Act, which was repealed in 2013.

Historic gown collection to undergo conservation process; may be removed from public exhibit

Historic gown collection to undergo conservation process; may be removed from public exhibit

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (OSHM) - The Old State House Museum’s First Ladies’ Gown collection, which contains over 120 years of inaugural gowns worn by Arkansas’s First Ladies, will temporarily close to the public on September 8, 2014, so the gowns can be assessed for conservation needs. The last day to see the collection before the assessment is September 7, 2014.

“The Arkansas First Ladies Gowns at the Old State House Museum are, through the years, our most popular artifacts,” said Bill Gatewood, director of the Old State House Museum. ”Our responsibility to preserve the gowns yet make them accessible to the public creates a very challenging situation.  The Museum staff's decision to begin conservation of the gowns exhibit must balance both considerations.”
