PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Providence School Board President Keith Oliveira expressed his disappointment that he cannot get a quorum at board meetings.
In a letter to his colleagues, he wrote, "Once again, as a public body, we have demonstrated a collective disregard for the commitment that we each have made individually to serve the community of Providence and to conduct the people's business before the Providence School Board.
Or maybe it is because they're tired of sitting around until 10:00 PM listening to testimony about clumsy, spurious, unfounded administrator firings. Well, that and being nationally embarrassed by not being given sufficient information to follow through with firing a principal who was running a sweat shop for disabled students in a high school.
Or maybe the combination of the two?
