Letter to the editor

Letter: School board should keep discussion open


The Elevate slate says they'll stop dissension on the school board. From 2013 to 2015, there was no dissension. The board went into executive session, then came out and voted unanimously.

The board of those years limited public input to a minute per 5 persons for 15 minutes total.

The board of those years did not openly discuss any issues but unanimously hired a wrecking ball superintendent, moved school funds to administration, paid $60 million for developing a teacher evaluative tool, and approved a series of pay rates for teachers lower than any other district.

That's what the Elevate slate says is stopping dissension.

Kevin Leung, Krista Holzworth, Anthony Graziano and Chris Schor will keep government transparent, keep open discussion and keep allowing public input. This isn't dissension; it's democracy.
