I guess I should stick with the wagon metaphor but after hearing what occurred during the February 9 RTBOE meeting I felt “Corralling the Rats” would be more appropriate.
Anyway, the board’s current rally cry is: “Ted Doty asks too many questions!”. Think about it, educators opposed to questions. Is it any wonder that our district test scores lag behind the county average? Our supposed leader wants us to “ponder the competition” but my suggestion is: Vitta et al, look at what you teach”
To divert attention from the question at hand , Board President Friedberger once again attempts to make an issue of past questions raised and the expense involved. Well the current issue that gets the board’s collective panties in a bunch is fund mismanagement.of $212K. There is conflict between an assertion made by the Interim School Business Administrator, Ralph Goodwin and directives forwarded from the DOE Commissioner and Director of the Finance Division.
I’ve registered a formal complaint to obtain access to records regarding potential fund mismanagement and requested the DOE Commissioner to weigh in on the apparent policy conflict. However,I should get feedback before sharing those correspondence.
