Please someone, go and take notes. I would love to hear who on the Board speaks up for TFA. After the info that was given to them on the additional costs of TFA (which Peter Maier never tired of saying didn't exist) and the lack of hires by our site-based hiring teams, I'll love to hear a justification for keeping this program. I'm sure they will do so because I can imagine the pressure from the charter crowd (the up-the-food-chain people like Jon Bridge and Nick Hanaeur) on the Board to keep it in place. Our Board (and their somewhat jiggly spine) probably won't be able to say no.
I won't be able to be there as I have an charter school event at Arbor Heights where I am acting as fact-checker. I neglected to mention this before because I got it in my head it was just for Arbor Heights parents. It isn't so if you want to hear a spirited discussion about charters, come on down.
Arbor Heights, 3701 SW 104th from 6:45-8:00 p.m.
