I believe Wright’s frustration with the super is well deserved. The super was willing to let an arcane rule made some twenty years ago disenfranchise large swathes of the community.
Just a reminder that Scott Shine and Jason Fischer despite the fact that none of their schools are involved with the supers proposal voted to limit public input over the pleas of he school board members who are potentially having schools affected. This is where the arcane rule comes in as a super majority are required to change a district policy, Cheryl Gyrmes was absent and did not vote.
You can hear the exasperation in Becki Couch’s voice as she tells how Shine and Fischer didn’t have the nerve to show up after they attempted to hijack the district.
This sadly is what happens when you have ideologues that want to dismantle our public schools, which Fischer and Shine are rather than people who love and want to improve them on our board.
At the end of the day the super’s I was just following
orders the rules runs hollow. Even Ashley Smith-Juarez seemed to dismiss his assertion.
I just want to add, I am a bit of a school board wonk and have closely followed the board for nearly a decade and I have never seen it this bad.
