It’s no secret that the Pennsylvania Department of Education is determined to walk in and take over the Chester Upland school district. Yet, I never expected that the school board would hold the door open for them.
How can nine people elected to serve the interest of public education in Chester decide that they’re just going to quit without a fight? What message does that send to the students they’re supposedly representing – “When things aren’t going your way, quit!”
So much for C-Pride!
If they didn’t agree with the recovery plan, I’d expect that they’d still vote yes, even under protest, in order to maintain some input on how the plan gets implemented. Not these quitters.
They may as well pack up their little belongings and turn in their keys today.
As a voter, I call it a dereliction of duty to vote yourself out of working, fighting, screaming, cajoling, politicking, and bribing (okay, maybe not bribing), for what’s best for the school district. To just hand over the reigns without a fight is a real punk move and you should be boooooed like a Philadelphia Eagle every time you walk out in public.
Don’t give us excuses. When you come to your senses, give us an apology.
For the four of you who voted Yes, what effort did you make to get one of the No voters to vote Yes?
