Thanks Allen for a taking a logical, and ethical stance. Raising the teachers costs for health benefits is just wrong! The small pay raise will go to pay the increased health costs.
The issue of spending 500 k for bussing, ought to be viewed as Board Members not doing due diligence, and carrying out their fiduciary responsibilities. We need Board members who will bring issues like these to a public arena, allow the citizens to discuss current issues. Instead of stating the obvious “choose civility”, we ought to have a sticker stating “choose transparency.” Coupled with the comments regarding not wanting to discuss segregation, I would say It most certainly is time for a change of membership on the Board.
