Dr. Vladovic is the first school board president in years that deserves to hold this position. Years ago he taught a class that I took. In those days it was clear to me that he is a person of conviction, that is devoted to our students. As a matter of fact, he is very likely doing this job as a service to our students. We have needed someone who understands our students and he does! Many times I did not seem to share his opinions, but he is someone that takes time to reflect.
Too many board members have used their positions for political reasons. They really did not have the ability to make logical and ethical decisions. How can this author quote Ms. Canter, who cheerfully introduced the "Admiral" superintendent? We all saw how that turned out.
I have always claimed that anyone that has the power to decide about curriculum and students, should teach one year out of every five years. They still could receive their higher salaries, but that would lead to true reform. As long as the reformers are politicians and theorists, we will not see any meaningful reform.
Mr. Aron could you possibly write an article about my premise?
