Glad we don't have Board members like this one in Georgia who apparently tried to run over a high-school student in a Walmart parking lot.
I spoke with State Superintendent Dorn yesterday. As I had previous surmised (and he confirmed), he is truly confused about his role under the state constitution and what the wording is in 1240. He is planning to have a conversation with the Attorney General's office to seek clarification on this issue. If the AG's office is unable to give him that clarification, he may have to go to the ultimate source which would be the Supreme Court but the funding for that would have to come out his office's funding. Not a great choice. What is interesting is that he is somewhat agnostic on charter schools (he has seen some good ones from years back but, of course, sees the issues around thinning the pot of already weak funding to our existing schools).
Anyone up for a snowball fight? The will be an attempt at Seattle Center on January 12th to benefit King county Boys and Girls Clubs. They are bringin in 162,000 lbs of snow. There will be a snow fort building competition and then a snowball fight.
UPDATE: It is an adults-only activity with no real viewing opportunities for either the forts or the fight.
What's on your mind?
