The Knox County Board of Education voted Wednesday to end its agreement with the University of Tennessee's Leadership Academy, a training program for school administrators. After public comment in support of and against the academy, board members voted 7-2 to terminate the agreement. Board members Gloria Deathridge and Lynne Fugate voted to keep the program. Several board members took issue with the direction of the Leadership Academy under the direction of former Knox County Superintendent Jim McIntyre , who now runs the program at UT. Board member Tony Norman said there needs to be a leadership change at the Leadership Academy. "He's got to go," Norman said, referring to McIntyre.
