Sandwich school committee: Eleventh hour decisions
Is it just me, or are we witnessing (once again) that elections, or the threat of them, have consequences?
Just before last year’s school committee election, our superintendent’s contract was renewed at a rushed and what turned out to be a nullified meeting. This year, two days before election day, the superintendent was banned from school property except for three hours a day after everyone else is gone.
Last night’s meeting was a caricature of the in-fighting and dysfunction that has plagued the school committee for the past two years.
I’m off to the polls. Join me.
