School Board Races Getting Tough

In a hard opening salvo for the School Board elections, the SEA voted no confidence in Board President Steve Sundquist.  The word is that it centers around his unwavering support for TFA.

In other news, a raft of school board candidate forums have popped up so here's an update (please let me know if I missed anything):

Tuesday, September 27th, Special Education PTSA School Board forum, JSCEE, 7 p.m.

Wednesday, September 28th - Town Hall at 7:30 p.m., 1119 8th Avenue (at Seneca) The Stranger's forum with interactive input from the audience (both questions and reactions).  Free but ticket required (can print at home)

Just wondering how many of the SEA members have no confidence in Union Leadership?
