Today’s reasonable sounding story in the Trib about changes to the Red Plan costing eleven million dollars, which (as the paper noted) won’t change its overall cost, reminded me once again what eunuchs the current school board is.
The changes themselves aren’t surprising but are indicitive of overly optimistic Red Plan cost projections which haven’t been born out as the Red Plan gets more expensive.
There will likely be no new transportation building. The STC will be sold (to save classroom time by ending bussing to it) and the OLD CAB will not get some fix ups. All of these are sort of routine except for the revelation that the Administration had never run them past the School Board. Nope, the majority of the Board is happy as clams staying out of the conversation between the Administration the Community and the State’s Educatioin Department.
Why, it makes one wonder why we even have a school board. Its just a little excessive democracy.
