I feel like that is a pretty fair assessment which brings me to, Scott and Cheryl maybe it’s you, that you are the reason the board is having all these problems and lets have an intervention to discuss it.
Scott you know Becki Couch and Ashley Smith Juarez in very polite fashion have both called you out for being unprepared and where that has to sting, why not heed their observations and stop treating the job like all it is to you is a check on your bucket list. For goodness sake man you voted for a charter school in your district the super said he wouldn’t have approved if it was working with poor kids. I have been to the beach, there are poor kids there too.
Then twice now you have gone behind the boards back and complained to the media because you felt like you knew what was best. Did you consider how that would affect your relationship with the rest of the board or did you just not care?
Hubris and ignorance is a terrible combination.
Then Cheryl, well I will just let the Times Union’s Ron Littlepage cover this one.
Sure it may be just a coincidence that every time Grymes has been on the board dysfunction creeps in, or it may be a pattern. two times on the board and two times it has been split into factions. Say what you will about Betty Burney and I said a lot but when she was on the board it was unified.
On the board we need prepared and informed people who will to do the hard work not people that just like to show up and abdicate their responsibility to the superintendent. Unfortunately we currently have both groups on the board.
