So, some high drama tonight at the Board meeting.
From the speakers list (with a long wait list), we see most of it is over the resolution for a No on 1240 from the Board. Judging from the names I recognize that would seem to be in agreement with this resolution, the Board will get lots of encouragement (although I do see a few that will disagree and I'll be interested to hear their argument).
Unfortunately, there are 4 TFA people on the list apparently to endorse the latest hiring of one TFAer (which no one else is protesting). It sure would be nice if they gave up those spots to parents with BEX concerns. If I hear enough good words in support of the No on1240 resolution, I will give up my spot.
I am actually hoping the Board, while discussing the resolution, does make some statement about groups that try to stifle their right to speak out on election issues that directly affect our district and the Board's work overseeing our district. Neither Stand for Children or any group has the right to tell the Board they cannot speak out.
That was a good debate last night; I wonder how women can get into Romney's "binders full of women."
One new event to make note of that you might want to attend is tomorrow night (Thursday, October 18th) at Queen Anne Elementary. They will have a double-header event:
6:30-7:15 pm - discussion of the Creative Approach process (and QAE's proposal)
7:30-8:30 p.m. - debate on I-1240 to create Charter Schools
It sounds like a good chance to hear more on both subjects. They do want you to RSVP.
