Take a good look at the seating arrangement for last night's school board meeting.
Way, way far away (in the picture) are the white-clothed tables blocking the board desks. You can almost see them from the back of the room.
Staff is seated now to the left side of the room, instead of running interference between the public and the board.
Seating is still arranged at COVID's "social distancing". Last night the first two rows were set up for special guests. I left before they were recognized.
What does that seating arrangement say to me?
That the board doesn't give two hoots for the public. "Put 'em in the back where we can more easily ignore them.
Speaking of ignore, during the full three minutes that I spoke last night, Amelia McKie did not look up once from her furious writing. Is she writing her memoirs and trying to finish them before her Ethics Commission hearing on October 20 or her term-of-office expires in November?
