Changes on Board?

Two items of interest from yesterday’s unusual Tuesday board meeting as reported in Substance:

  • * Public Participation Sign-Up will be revamped for the October meeting. On-line sign-up will be allowed.
  • * The Board members are maintaining “Office Hours.” Interested members of the public may request a meeting with Board Members by calling 773-553-1600.

Hm. Do they perhaps feel an elected school board breathing down their necks? Parents 4 Teachers reports that “a non-binding elected school board referendum will be on the ballot in the November election. Voters in some 200 precincts, in roughly half the city’s wards, will be able to cast their vote for democracy in education.”

Let’s keep the momentum for real democracy going!
