End the Summer Breaks for School Boards!

It amazes me that school boards -- at least the Rochester School Board -- do not have more agressive and ambitious plans and agendas.

What I find particularly annoying is that it gets even slower in the summer, when you'd think that would be the best time to really try to get some work done. The administrators -- who work year-round -- should have time to participate in goal-setting and analysis, and collaborate with the board.

Instead, the board has light agendas, and even cancels meeting due to a supposed lack of topics.

How is that possible?

I wrote the following article to address this concern:

Oakland Press: Let's find ways to help kids make the grade (07/26/05)

School boards need to be working harder.
