The Stranger Slog (ever the smarty-pants bunch) gave the three District Position 1 School Board candidates a pop quiz today. From the thread:
In front of the SECB right now are incumbent Peter Maier along with challengers Sharon Peaslee and John Cummings, who appear sane but must be nutters because they want—actually want—to be on the Seattle School Board.
First we're giving them a civics quiz—eight questions you're required to know in high school—then what do you want to know? Put your questions in comments and we'll try to ask 'em
Unfortunately, they didn't print the questions but I'll try to ring someone up tomorrow and ask what they were. Congrats to Peter Maier who came in first at 87.5%, Sharon Peaslee at 87% and John Cummings at 75%. It is pointed out that those scores are all better than most Americans and most educators (again, no idea where these stats came from).
