Focus on the students
I’m disappointed CCM published a letter full of false accusations on Oct. 17.
There was no “punishment” involved in the STEM School charter renewal earlier this year. The charter agreement was about to expire and the school board offered a one-year extension to allow ample time to negotiate a new long term agreement in the wake of the tragic shooting there. Would critics rather let the charter expire and leave STEM with no valid operating agreement?
The characterization of the speaker asked to leave the podium is also incorrect. The speaker violated a rule that had just been explained. When asked to pause, he kept speaking, signifying he knew he was out of order. Because he didn’t stop, his microphone was turned off and security asked him to leave the podium, which he did without incident.
David Ray has been an exemplary leader on the school board, remaining composed, gracious and focused on students, even when attacked. Susan Meek has experience bringing diverse groups together to collaborate for the sake of children, and unmatched knowledge of both district and state education policy. Elizabeth Hanson’s experience in employment law will be vital as the district continues repairing its relationship with staff.
I’m voting Hanson Meek Ray, because we don’t need petty conflict on the school board. We need to focus on students.
