No, Thank You Brita

This editorial by Director Brita Butler-Wall appeared in today's PI. Well-said, Brita.

While I appreciate the effort Brita made to move to the middle during her tenure, I find it interesting that most of the accomplishments she cited occurred with a superintendent she refers to as a non-educator.

I think the 2003 board is giving themselves a lot of credit for work that was the result of the efforts of a lot more people than just the board, specifically, very dedicated staff members.

Brita, you are right. This board accomplished A LOT.

You personally accomplished A LOT, and you were always available to your constituents.

You should be proud of what you accomplished, and I am honored to have had you leading the board.

I wish you would have run again, but I certainly understand why you didn't. Who wants a thankless volunteer job, that can accomplish so much, with so little recognition. Not only little recognition, but continual bashing, and vile public outcry at every turn.

I don't blame you one bit for not running.

I thank you for your service and wish you the best in your new endeavors, whatever they may be.
