PROVIDENCE — Mayor Angel Taveras has nominated Natalia Rosa-Sosa to serve on the Providence School Board.
The nomination was submitted to the City Council for consideration this week.
Rosa-Sosa, who recently served as a program associate for Global Partnership Schools and a research assistant at the Roger Williams University Latino Policy Institute, is a dedicated community servant and education advocate, Taveras said in a news release. ...
Rosa-Sosa attended Mary E. Fogarty and Martin Luther King Elementary, Nathan Bishop Middle School and Hope High School before entering the University of Rhode Island, where she is currently finishing a bachelor’s degree in English and economics.
In the abstract, I like the idea of nominating a college student who is a recent PPSD grad (or maybe not recent, who knows?), but doing so precisely in the middle of a bitter power struggle between the mayor's office and the (mayorally appointed) board is kind of insulting.
