Watch: Hite's schools blueprint is the focus of SRC meeting

By the Notebook on Jan 14, 2013 05:57 PM

Superintendent William Hite's blueprint for school reform -- appreciated for its effort to lay out priorities, criticized for its fiscal feasibility -- will be the focus of tonight's School Reform Commission meeting. After giving an overview of "Action Plan v1.0," as the plan is called, three responses will be heard: an educator's reponse, a higher-education response, and a business response. An open discussion will follow. The meeting can be viewed live above, starting at 6 p.m.

The SRC has a history of being just a convenient rubber stamp for each Superintendent. Kind of like the collective mind of The Borg. I absolutely have no reason to believe that The SRC will not be complicate as usual. They will wait until the damage is done until they start rumbling. (Just like they did for Queen Arleen.) Until, that is, it's time to pin the blame, point fingers and bury Hite.

Kinh said "no charters this year" but next year. How can the School District close schools while opening charters? The argument from Kinh is market demand. Whose market? Charters cost the District more money. How much blood can be taken out of District schools and still make them viable?
