Dezmon says get rid of AIM if you don't like it
Dezmon retired in June 2010 from the job of assistant superintendent for equity and assurance. She said the public had questioned the ethics of Hairston giving her the copyright to the program which she could have made money on. Dezmon said she always intended to give the money to St. Jude's Hospital, although she had never announced that to the public. She told the school board that if they don't want to use AIM anymore they should get rid of it. "If you do decide to discontinue it, please inform me in writing."
She also told Hairston: "You have to make sure that everyone knows about the struggles to make it better for students in the system."
