McCown provides detail not included in other media releases. You'll be able to understand better what led to the chaos that afternoon.
The public (and board members) have witnessed the months of disrespect shown by Teresa Holmes to Lashonda McFadden. Teresa has cut Lashonda off in board meetings, spoken to her in a condescending manner, over-talked her at many meetings.
Why would Teresa laugh while Lashonda was speaking during the meeting?
Why would Teresa say, "“Finish your statement, honey. Do what you gotta do.”
Why would Teresa say, “Little girl, little girl, little girl”?
Why would Teresa say, “And what you gonna do, boo? So, what you gonna do? Do it! Do it!”
Why would Teresa egg Lashonda on and the count the "crimes"?
The Board's lack of knowledge of parliamentary procedure has contributed to the chaos. The District spent a lot of money on two "executive-coaching" sessions that produced nothing in the way of improved behavior by Teresa.
Teresa's term-of-office as Board Chair runs out June 28. What will happen at the next three meetings?
I've believed for a long time that you can't pick a fight and then cry "Victim". If you stick your jaw out and say, "Hit me. Hit me" and then get hit, you're going to lose in court.
If someone is tailgating you and you brake-check that driver, you will not collect from his (or her) insurance. Don't believe me? Try it.
