Whither School Committees?

Carroll Andrew Morse

At Mayor Allan Fung's town hall meeting last evening on city issues in Cranston, there was much emphasis on the school committee as the area of city government most in need of fixing. You can hear some of the discussion for yourself, by clicking on the links below…

Is Cranston the only community where there is a growing interest in serious school committee reform, or is this sentiment shared around the state?

Fung raids the rainy day fund to the tune of $5.4 million - nothing on AR.

Fung draws 60 people to a meeting to talk mostly about paving and graffiti... AR is all over it.

I don't know that there is a groundswell for this sort of thing, but there should be. I'll just disagree with Fung's last point, Caruolo shouldn't be the top priority, the top priority should be either having the city council negotiate school contracts or have the school committee send out their own tax bills. The way things are set up now is asinine.
