IISD #12: Loud and Unclear

IISD Admin Lunchroom Chatter #12

Nosher #1: Well, it is starting to look like the ‘fix’ is in for the Floundering Five school board members and Super to cave and cede to the vocal minority by adopting a 7-0 (all elected by districts) board election plan. It seems as if they are going to let political correctness trump what is best for the district and community.

Nosher #2: You know, it is really sad that these individuals are so far off base from what the genuine public sentiment is. Do you think the loud ranting by activists has caused temporary deafness? Do they not understand that a 5-2 (districts and two at-large) plan is what would resonate with greater accord in the community?

Nosher #1: That’s true. At least the Irving city council had the basic common sense to provide for two at-large seats along with their single member districts (6-2-1). And look how well that has worked out.

Nosher #2: Guess this is what happens when the Floundering Five allow demographic politics to overcome sound reasoning and decision making. Chalk their 7-0 plan up as another, in a long series, inane action by this group.

Nosher #1: One can only hope that one day the Floundering Five will understand that currying political favor does not benefit those footing the bill for the district’s operations...the tax paying public. Maybe, the next school board election this idea will resonate!

A note from counsel: These “candid” lunchroom conversations have been injected with fabricated nouns, verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, adverbs, modifiers and maybe a few dangling participles. Mark Holbrook
