It appears there won’t be any public debates between Red Clay school board candidates. I see no schedules as to where candidates will be such as PTA meetings or a meet and greet events at local Dunkin Donuts as an example. No schedule as to what neighborhood they’ll be campaigning in and when. Looking at a few candidate website I see no contact E-mail or phone number! I do see where one can complete a contact info box and assume candidate will get back to that person. Can all of you please post at least your E-mail in plain view. Kilroy can find you but those without Kilroy’s network might not.
Resume and what one stands for is fine. However, specifics on how one might address the issues is really needed! Being a cheerleader for all the established successful program is wonderful. Being for for transparency is a no-brainer. But laying out a plan of action or some pathway to achieve those goals would be nice and expected.
An old wise cajun bird once told me, no one board member has greater power than another board member. This is true and one board member can’t effectively make change without majority support of other board members.
Question 1) As a newly elected board member what steps / action will you take to address concerns of resegregation or perhaps de facto segregation and related compounding issues within such as school Choice, charter schools, magnet schools and Neighborhood Schools / assigned feeder-patterns?
Question 2) Do you support Race to The Top? (and why to your answer)
Question 3) Do you support charter schools (and why to your answer)
Question 4) Do you support teacher bonuses associated with Race to The Top or without Race to The Top (and why to your answer)
Question 5 ) What is your opinion on the concerns of teacher retention? What ideas would you bring to the table to address this crisis?
Though Kilroy isn’t the News Journal and doesn’t have their reach, Kilroy does have a good fooling and I am sure everyone would like to hear your responses, So with all respects please consider responding to the question in the comment section and I’ll move into body of post! Thank you
FYI, since I am asking the questions for the benefit of the community I am not going to comment or respond. As for as others. I ask that they be nice and stick to the topic.
