JPS Board Member Ivory ..., 9 Sept 2011 [cached]
JPS Board Member Ivory Phillips said the district is spending too much on non-instructional components of its strings program.
At that time, Board Member Ivory Phillips voted against renewing the symphony's contract. After outcry from parents, the board voted 4-0 to renew the contract, this time with Phillips voting in favor of renewal.
Phillips said he is concerned about the "non-instructional" components of the program, which include demonstrations of the instruments by symphony members and student performances. He said non-instructional components are too expensive at this time.
"So you're suggesting we just teach them but never let them perform? Board President Kisiah Nolan asked.
Phillips replied that students should be allowed to perform, but JPS could manage performances instead of the symphony.
Phillips said the board needs more time to consider the cost, especially how much the program would cost if more students participated.
"I'm quite a connoisseur of music, I think ... but I would really like us to think now about the non-instructional component," he said.
Phillips made a motion to delay the vote for a week while the board studied the symphony's contract, but the motion died for lack of a second. The board voted 6-1 to renew JPS's contract with the symphony, with Phillips voting in opposition.
Phillips said he did not think a consultant was necessary to find a superintendent, and he voted against hiring one, citing budgetary concerns.
Did Phillips really just propose that the already overburdened JPS staff take over the duties of coordinating and setting up the concerts?

"There is a lot of discontentment, a lot of disgust," said Ivory P. Phillips, president of the Faculty Senate at historically black Jackson State University.
Mr. Phillips, of Jackson State, said the settlement plan contributes to the feeling among many black residents that "the state is as racist as it has always been."That sentiment already had been heightened earlier in April when Mississippi residents voted, by a two-to-one margin, to keep the Confederate symbol on the state flag.
Mr. Phillips called the settlement's numerical goals for enrolling nonblack students at historically black institutions "hypocritical on the part of the state of Mississippi."Although state officials are proposing quotas for enrolling nonblack students, he said, "they oppose affirmative action when it comes to improving the life opportunities of African-American students."
Mr. Phillips, the Jackson State faculty leader, who is also the president of the coalition, said he and others are upset about several parts of the settlement -- not merely the link between control of the new endowments and the institutions' nonblack enrollments.
These critics wanted the agreement to substantially enhance the missions of the historically black institutions by adding professional programs at each university.Even though the agreement does call for some new programs, Mr. Phillips believes that it does not go far enough to advance the institutions' academic presence in the state.
Mr. Phillips said he and many others also wanted the agreement to alter the governance structure of the state's universities to ensure that historically black institutions were better represented on the state's public-college board.
