So who exactly on Florida’s state board of education is telling the truth?

Sally Bradshaw’s said, “I don’t understand when it
became acceptable to disguise and manipulate the truth simply because the truth
is uncomfortable.”
Then there was Chairman Gary Chartrand’s: “I don’t
think the truth is being revealed in the current grading system.”
They both referenced the truth but the problem is they
voted on opposite sides of the board’s decision to artificially inflate or
deflate depending on how you look at it, school’s grades.
These are their bios, http://www.fldoe.org/board/bios/chartrand.asp
and http://www.fldoe.org/board/bios/Bradshaw.asp
notice how neither were teachers or ever worked in education, oy vey and we
wonder why we are in such trouble.  Its
worse friends because both of them have been on the state board for years which
means thy have had plenty of opportunities to fix our failed accountability
system. Instead they chose to sit on their thumbs until grades were about to be
released and then created a firestorm that made Florida a national laughing
stock and did nothing to address the problems in our schools. In fact when has
anybody in Tallahassee done anything to address poverty?

Furthermore both of them are part of
the pro privatization, they will say choice but we all know what they really
mean, movement here in Florida. They want to destroy the teacher’s unions
because they don’t think teachers are professionals and anybody could do the
job, and replace public schools with McCharters. I don’t think either of them
have any idea what the truth really is.
