The announcement would be more accurate if it stated that entertainment will be provided by Mayor McGinn and Dr. Enfield as they dance around, duck and dodge the direct questions I anticipate will be asked at this event.

What crappy timing for parents - are we really able to walk out on our families at dinnertime on the last day of school? I think this ought to be rescheduled. Maybe the point is that they want to make sure nobody shows up. Really, very insensitive timing.

Peeved.

I will not be able to attend but it would be wonderful if someone would ask about the following from my testimony for 6-15-2011 Board meeting...
-------

The UW’s Teach for America proposal states:

This proposal represents a response to human resource needs identified by the Seattle and Federal Way School Districts in areas of “chronic teacher shortage”. Based on a self assessment of both current needs and broader long term plans for human resource development.

So a Chronic teacher shortage drives broader long term HR plans. The District needs plans alright, it needs a response to Struggling Students not a response to a faked teacher shortage to rig future hiring decisions.
