Am I media or not? I wish the district would make - up - their - minds.
Anyway, there was a media briefing this morning with Dr. Enfield. Here's what the Slog article had to say.
"I think there's a big difference between caving and listening," Enfield said. "The decision that I made originally was hard, but I made a commitment to the community to listen and I listened. I felt this was the best way to move forward."
But Enfield said that her decision to not renew Floe's contract had come after a year-long review period. "I have to make the best decision with the data I have," she said. "... The challenge was Floe and I were privy to information parents didn't have. So that was frustrating."
She added that part of the problem was that people failed to understand that there was a proper process in place. Enfield hopes to make that more transparent in the future. "When we make hard personnel decisions, we provide as much information as we can, but we can be much more clear on what the overall process looks like," she said.
Explaining processes in advance? Listening to community? Does the Broad know she's saying this? Oh right, Enfield went to Harvard's superintendent academy, not Broad's.
