From this week we see that Dr. Enfield, at least in the case of TFA, wasn't open to listening to parent/community input at all. That she would mock/laugh with a TFA rep at input from those in opposition to TFA is quite disturbing. I'll be interested to see if she ever addresses this issue with me or anyone else.
We also have yet another wealthy person who wants to make over public education in the form of hey! he's from Microsoft, Scott Oki. As former School Board director, Steve Brown, once said to me, "Why is it that wealthy people always want to start new things and not help fix our existing schools?"
Next week is the last full week of summer for our kids. I'm sure it's a melancholy time for some of you and others can't wait.
As a reminder, Kay Smith-Blum is having her community meeting tomorrow from 10-11:30 am at the Douglass-Truth library. Her agenda has a large number of items and Executive Director Nancy Coogan will also be on hand to answer questions and take input.
Also, the Families and Education levy will be shooting its commercial this Sunday from noon to 1 p.m. at Garfield High School. All kids from 8-18 are welcome to participate. Info at FamiliesAndEd@gmail.com
