Providence School Board to Consider Vote of No Confidence in Itself

Elisabeth Harrison:

The school board in Providence will hear a presentation at its meeting this evening from Achievement First, the charter management group hoping to open a series of charter schools for students in Providence and Cranston.

Acting Providence School Board Chair Nina Pande says the group has been asked to give on opinion on whether it supports the application, which currently awaits approval from the State Board of Regents for Elementary and Secondary Education.

If the school board really thinks that Dan McKee, Allan Fung, Joe Wilson and the rest of their cronies know more about educating the kids of Providence than Mayor Taveras and themselves, who am I do argue otherwise?
