Thanks for noticing

The Tennessean threw their editorial support behind Gracie Porter this school board election cycle and so it did seem a bit like I'd entered an alternative universe when I read in their editorial this morning:

"As board members weigh the [BOE Policy Governance] committee proposal, they should consider the opinion of the board's newest member, Kay Brooks, who said that while she understands the need for a computer or fax machine, she would prefer that not-for-profits or community groups provide them. Metro should give board members the resources they need, but Brooks' point is that priorities are important in using school funds. Taxpayers need to see cost-effectiveness at every turn.
