Maria Geryk, Amherst Town Meeting 5/7/14
Anytime a high ranking appointed public official is evaluated by elected amateurs -- especially a particularly docile board like the Regional School Committee -- I always factor in the tumultuous 1968 election where LBJ "won" New Hampshire, but only by 7 percentage points over upstart Eugene McCarthy (49% to 42%), and later dropped out of the race.
Is this year-end evaluation of Amherst Regional Public Schools Superintendent Maria Geryk really more "Exemplary" than "Proficient"? Should she have scored a LOT higher?
Or considering the tumultuous year at Amherst Regional High School, a LOT lower?
(Safe bet she will not be dropping out.)
