Note: In the continuing discussion about whether School Committee should have blogs, the Gazette has a front page story today about a letter by the ACLU supporting the rights of elected officials to have blogs. The entire text of the letter (which I would say includes a strong defense) is available within the article.

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.
