Got a Minute?
Interesting post by blogger Jason Booms on Spartan Considerations about the Teach for Tomorrow debacle in the Howard County Public Schools. He’s shining a light on the actions of former BOE Chair Janet Siddiqui, now a candidate for County Council.
A little piece of information that I would like to call your attention to: it appears the former Superintendent created a corporation and drafted minutes to an organizing meeting that never occurred.
“...drafted minutes to an organizing meeting that never occurred.”
I’ve heard some thoughtful people opining recently that perhaps some folks just didn’t like Dr. Foose because she was an innovator, and they weren’t comfortable with change. I’m pretty sure that being an innovator doesn’t require one to create secret corporations with fictional minutes. It shouldn’t involve co-opting a Board Chair to go against everything they have pledged to do in public service.
That’s not innovation. I have a few words I’d like to suggest but I’ll let you fill in the blanks for yourself.
