More concerning was the packed room of residence and teacher expressing concerns about theseRead Moreadditio ns, and it didn't even give the School Committee a moments pause. And the fact that the Chair of the School Committee abstained from voting on one of the added positions because he said he didn't know enough about it. What? If the Chair feels he does not have enough information, why did he allow a vote?

Michelle, Your point is very well taken. It almost appeared as though the decision to pushRead Moreforward was made before the meeting ever happened, and the vote was a rubber stamp, out of control of the SC. There seem to be much more efficient and effective ways to improve the kids education than adding data collection administrators. One of the teachers asked for teaching assistants, who can handle the day to day load, and free the best teachers to work on curriculum, leadership and coordination. Adding a layer of bureaucrats to report to a nebulous position is expensive, does NOT add to the kids education, and does not make sense.
