The school board avoids including the public again!

The school board had to cancel and reschedule meetings related to the hiring of the new superintendent. They didn’t’ properly notify the public. They caught the mistake and canceled or rescheduled the meetings so no big deal right?

Wrong

Mistakes are made and if they are rectified it is no big deal however a pattern of excluding the public has emerged and that can’t be denied. The board continues to schedule meetings either early in the morning or afternoon when teachers and most of the public cannot attend because they are working.

I realize no time will be perfect for everybody but why doesn’t the school board schedule their meetings for times when more of the public and teachers can attend? The obvious answer is they don’t care what they have to say. Another disturbing pattern the school board has developed.

    Once you elect an official, whether the President of the United States or a school board member, as a citizen of the United States of America, your first obligation is to trust the people you elected. This respect is done by respecting the majority vote. To do otherwise, is unpatriotic and undermines the system set up by those who wrote the Constitution. Then, if you don't like the decisions that are made, you get to vote again.

  2. Reverend Purser do you really believe that?? Blind obiedence??? No sir patriotism is to question and demand better.

    This board has been terrible and I while children aren't getting the education they deserve and teacherrs are treated like second class citizens I am not content to stand back and do nothing.
