First let me say thanks to the 23 MBMS teachers that attended the school Board meeting last night. The room was overflowing with parents and teachers demanding answers. Parents asked, how can teachers negotiate fair compensation when the district is not transparent about their spending? Teachers asked, how can we trust an administration that refuses to listen to teachers? Students asked, how can anyone lose 1 million dollars? I’m sure Dr. Matthews asked himself, how can I get out of here? One former board member asked, how can everyone be so rude as to ask questions of the board? The most important answer of the evening came from Dr. Matthews; when asked if the accounting error, depleting the general fund of over $1,000,000, would have gone unnoticed without the continual questions by the union he said, that is correct!
