Two board members deride city schools' proposed code of conduct: "The Pittsburgh school board is considering a code of conduct that supporters described as a move toward better government and critics called an effort to curb criticism of Superintendent Mark Roosevelt.There is NOTHING that should be in the zone of "confidentiality of privileged information" with a school board member -- other than that of a specific student. And, the board should NOT be dealing with specific students, unless that student is the son or daughter of that board member. Then the board member is a "parent" and not really operating as an elected official as a steward of a public institution.
Privileged information does exits in other very small corners of the duties of board members. There are employee matters and land deals where it would make sense to NOT blab. But, these are tiny elements of the jobs.
They want to make more and more be called privileged. Then they can call for 'marshall law' and make a smack-down to those who object with their voices.
Schools have been closed and then re-opened. Fine. Likewise, tests have been failed and then taken later and passed.
You can't get to third grade and forget everything that happened in first grade. What is past is past. But, it is still something that can be talked about.
Where is that "proposed" code? Can it be sent to me via email or else posted in this thread?
