I bumped into Stamford’s NAACP President Jack Bryant in Stamford High School’s main office Tuesday morning. We chatted for a few minutes, during which time he told me to expect a long list of people to turn out at this coming Tuesday’s Board of Education meeting to voice their concerns about the recent conversations about grouping.
The grouping topic has brought out a lot of Stamford educators, parents and other community members in recent weeks. But the one person I’ve yet to see at a Board of Ed meeting since I started reporting for the Advocate in July, 2010 is Mayor Michael A. Pavia.
The Advocate ran a story on June 26, 2010, in which then-education reporter Wynne Parry wrote:
“I have been very busy, but now I have some time, I’ll be attending the meetings,” when possible, he said.
Do you think it’s important for Mayor Pavia to attend Board of Ed meetings?
