Superintendent Vitti is about to have real problems with the school board

I have to say I am impressed thus far with the
superintendent, he is not just saying but doing the right things as well. He
has pushed back against to much testing, value added teacher evaluations and
today he said we should have conversations about education reform based on
data, you know facts and evidence rather than ideology and therein lies the

Jason Fischer and Ashley Juarez Smith are driven by ideology
and things like data, facts and evidence don’t matter and if you want proof
look at their latest comments about charter schools and smaller classes. Mrs.
Smith-Juarez said there is no evidence that smaller classes are beneficial
where there is a lot and Fischer said he wouldn’t be swayed by data when it
comes to charter schools and that’s because he has already made up his mind.
Charter schools are good, public schools are bad..
These ideologues aren’t concerned with what’s best for our
kids, teachers or schools, they only care about Jeb Bush and Gary Chartrad’s
marching orders, two other prominent education leaders who don’t care about
facts and evidence either. 

I like the superintendent but I can’t imagine his
already very tough job being made any easier by school board members who don’
care about facts, data or evidence.
