Remember how delighted you were when you discovered that school board director Harium Martin-Morris had a blog?
Remember how delighted you were when you saw that he responded to comments on his blog?
Remember how delighted you were when he understood people's concerns and wrote that he would take action?
Have you noticed that he doesn't do that anymore?
He often goes weeks without responding to posts. He no longer sees the public's perspective. Instead of representing the public to the District, he now represents the District to the public.
What changed? I think he has become discouraged. He may have tried to take some of the actions that he said he would take, but nothing ever came of it. He didn't write the White Paper on the influence of national foundations. He didn't get answers to the long list of commitments. He didn't get a Transportation Report. Maybe he became discouraged when he saw that nothing he tried to do ever worked.
Am I alone in thinking this, or do other folks think that Director Martin-Morris has transformed from a reformist to a conformist?
