The Board voted 4-2 to buy the NTN program for the STEM program at Cleveland. (Michael DeBell was not present and Smith-Blum and Patu voted against.) I left after the vote (in disgust) and so missed the LA Adoption vote (but I can guess).
This after speakers who seemed to showcase all that is not working in this district.
I still believe that most Board members get into office, drink some kind of Kool-aid and just turn off just enough common sense that makes them then side with the staff. Every. single. time.
I will write a blow-by-blow (because you should understand what each director said and they each spoke; there's some great new info on the SAP I didn't know) but I'm pretty tired and discouraged now.
