Isn’t it about time the Madison School Board heard from us citizens?
The cadres from Freedom Inc. (FI) Youth Brigade and the International Socialist Organization will hector the full Madison Board of Education again at its monthly meeting next Monday, August 27.
They will do so even though the 12-member ad hoc committee on educational resource officers (EROs) STILL has not made a final recommendation. But cops in the schools IS on the agenda, albeit as a progress report (or lack, thereof). The social justice warriors testified at the July school board meeting, even though it was the same agenda item: a progress report not a recommendation.
The MMSD school board office confirms that the public can testify on any item on the agenda, and EROs are on the agenda.
We can wait until the end of September if you like. If even THEN this committee — now at 19 months and counting — ever comes up with a recommendation. But it is time that the Madison Board of Education heard from The Rest of Us sooner rather than later. It is time the Madison school board learns that the usual suspects speak only for themselves.
The chairman of the ad hoc committee Dean Loumos and committee member T.J. Mertz are school board members who will be in attendance Monday. Let’s set them on the right path and the other five members of the school board.
And tell them we want EROs in the middle schools, as well!
Blaska’s Bottom Line: If we have to attend two school board meetings in two months, is that a sacrifice we can make? THEY will be there. Will you join ME?
Support cops in schools by attending the Madison Board of Education meeting on Monday, August 27. Starts at 6 p.m. at the MMSD administration building, 545 W. Dayton Street. Free parking.
Tell me you’ll be there, too!
