And instead of discussing an

And instead of discussing an instrument to evaluate acting superintendent they should be discussing hiring a new, permanent superintendent and medically retiring the current superintendent. It's time. There is no point in building shiny new schools if there is no permanent leadership at the top with a vision, a plan, and goals.

Our school system's performance is already one of the worst in the nation. It's not because of the buildings. New buildings to house the inmates will not improve the school system one bit.

From what I see in the weekly "tribunal" report, all we need to do is triple the size of Tubman Alternative and spend the rest of the money expanding YDC and RCCI. If the BOE would expel the ones that need expelling, the remaining students could probably be absorbed into the new schools they have already built and they could fire some of the most incompetent teachers and save a bunch of money.
