There was a wonderful “Ed Town Hall” event last night hosted by WOCAS and Essex Rising! There was an informed panel of speakers and a group of concerned teachers and WO residents who were able to get questions answered and clarity on current issues. Sandra Mordecai and Laura Lab showed up about 1/4 of the way through. Changed the tone a bit, but I think they got the message. It seems they are now open to having a similar event (round table discussion, perhaps) with all of the board members!
One of the many interesting things I learned was that the WO school district gets sued regularly by people who are not satisfied with the special education provided. Our district ranks upon the top in the country for complaints about compliance. I wonder how much money they spend on these lawsuits??
