When did David Fox do a meeting?

I like Kindall generally, but my school is in his district, and honestly, I've seen Kathleen Harkey and David Fox there plenty; I haven't seen Kindall except at a graduation ceremony, but even then more often it's one of the others I've mentioned.

Ironically, Kindall has been vocal on the issue, mainly saying things should slow down so there's plenty of discussion.

Staying Under The Radar said...

Kindall's agenda is not about Educating Children First. It's about "Diversity." Whatever that means, when the district overall increasingly looks, basically, black and hyspanic. Hello? There's nothing to "diversify" if the white middle class has left. And there is nothing he can do to make them stay. MNPS has got to ditch the idea of making kids suffer through long bus rides across town in the name of Diversity, and instead let every child go to his or her neighborhood school. They have got to raise the bar everywhere, at all schools, for all kids, now. Ed Kindall should do us all a favor and go find something else to do with his time.

Since 1985, seriously? Shouldn't he have been GRADUATED or something by now?

Any student, even one with special problems needing extra attention and time, would have been shown the schoolhouse door after 20+ years of trying . . .presumably even the most promising institution-to-individual relationship will have long since done whatever possible good it had the potential for, by now?

Seriously. 1985.

I've sent e-mails to both Fox and Kindall asking for info on their meetings.
