Read what Vitti said yesterday in the Times Union: I’m not going into this process believing everything in the recommendations needs to be done,” he said. “But my responsibility as superintendent is to be proactive regarding the short-term and long-term challenges... This is an opportunity for us to leverage our buildings, to not give them to a charter school and not sell our properties and land.”
He said, I’m not going into this process believing everything in the recommendations needs to be done.
Then what the hell is he doing? Just spit balling ideas? Throwing paint against the wall and hoping something sticks? Wouldn't it be nice to know which ideas he thinks we desperately have to see come true and which ideas he was just messing with us with. How can we take anything he says seriously knowing that?
Leadership is not throwing a bunch of crap out there to see what you can get away with. Leadership is also not fear mongering, and that's what the second part of his statement was.
News flash we do have issues, but they are fixable issues, and our school system is not dying on the vine, but what we desperately need is leadership and if Vitti thinks our district is dying and he can't provide the leadership we need then it is time he looked for employment elsewhere.
