My Goal in Blogging
I started this blog in May of 2008, shortly after my election to the School Committee, because I believed it was very important to both provide the community with an opportunity to share their thoughts with me about our schools and to provide me with an opportunity for me to ask questions and share my thoughts and reasoning. I have found the conversation generated on my blog to be extremely helpful to me in learning community views on many issues. I appreciate the many people who have taken the time to share their views. I believe it is critical to the quality of our public schools to have a public discussion of our community priorities, concerns and aspirations.

I will summarize the meeting more tomorrow -- but Map #5 was selected by a 4 to 1 vote (Churchill, Rhodes, Rivkin, Sanderson voted in favor, Anderson voted no and preferred Map #6). Thanks to all of those who sent email/letters to the School Committee expressing their thoughts. It was a difficult decision, and I'm very glad that the vote is over, and that we can now move on to focus on how to make all three of the schools work well for all children.
