This Morning on KUOW

Michael DeBell, Mary Bass and Dick Lilly spoke on KUOW this morning about school closures. Listen to it here.

Here are my notes:
  • Mary Bass: "I think we heard some great ideas last night at the Board meeting that need to be fleshed out a little..."
  • Dick Lilly: speaking of risk of harming APP program and SBOC/Nova proposal, "...terrible history of co-location...it doesn't work"
  • Michael DeBell: "...shifting away from more autonomous schools that either rise or fall based on parental choice"
