Dick Prindle, a member of the Charter Revision Commission, said this morning that the panel agreed last night to abandon the idea of pushing for an appointed Board of Education.
He said he wasn't surprised given the lack of support for the proposal.
“I’m more or less totally disgusted with education,” said Prindle, who has run unsuccessfully for the school board in the past. He prefers changing to a voucher system that would open the door to students to attend alternative schools more easily.
Prindle said he's skeptical that the charter commission will wind up backing any significant reforms.
“I don’t see this group making any real changes,” he said. “It’s very discouraging to me.”
