Good thoughts on a recent and inappropriate blog post from a sitting RPS School Board member:
Yesterday, 3rd District Rep and Vice Chair Kenya Gibson published an opinion piece about the Superintendent’s “anti-democratic” tenure in DC, and branded her board colleagues’ cooperation with his administration as anti-kid and uninformed…If the superintendent was an elected official, or a political figure at all, perhaps this kind of public attack would be considered par for the course. But he is not a political figure. He is an employee of RPS, and conducting this kind of personnel review in the public sphere is in direct violation of district policy. Ms. Gibson is entitled to her position and her assessment, which — in the best interest of the district and its reputation — ought to be shared in closed session.
