Calvin Terrell stands before angry public school parents
In yet another front page Gazette follow up -- pretty much a rewrite of a Masslive story from earlier this week -- concerning the disturbing presentation that occurred to our Middle School children on October 2, results from a parent survey that I requested via Public Documents Law (thus far ignored) for the raw results gets a brief mention.
Calvin Terrell: Not my fault!
As I suspected, a majority (54%) of the 103 parent/guardians responding had problems with the presentation. And only 15.5% thought the Schools should "continue the work begun by Calvin Terrell."
Considering the "work" to fight racism and bullying is an admirable goal, not a very good overall response to such a leading open ended question.
Of course if the aging Gazette actually had children in the schools they would have actually received the survey and would know that it was anonymous. Doesn't get much more "private" than that.
Thus when the Schools do get around to responding to my Public Documents request and blow me off like they did the diffident Gazette with the old "information that could be considered student records" thus protected by state privacy law, I will call them on it.
