Letter: School Board Member: Let’s stop the blame game and get on with education

It has been very rough going for Miami-Dade County Schools district — which, of course, affects the entire community — for the past three weeks.

Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho and our workforce’s leadership inured us of glad tidings for years — until the past three weeks, when our entire community suffered the 2020-2021 school year’s virtual opening using the K-12 My School Online platform.

Besides the fiasco, fatigue, and frustration this experience brought our students, parents, teachers, and administrators, things were not made better by some voices clamoring the message: heads must roll!

Fourth Concord Board Of Education Member Calls It Quits

CONCORD, NH — In January 2021, when Concord’s Board of Education begins the work of the New Year, nearly half the nine-person body will be new members — with two-thirds of the board having less than a year’s experience advising the third largest school district in the state.

Chuck Crush, the current District C (Wards 8, 9, 10) school board member, joins Tom Croteau of District A and Liza Poinier of District B, in deciding not to run for reelection.

On Saturday, Crush called serving on the board “a wonderful experience” — even if it faced many issues they did not anticipate, including the Primo “Howie” Leung teacher-student rape case, the firing of Terri Forsten, the school superintendent and Tom Sica, the principal of Concord High School, and the COVID-19 pandemic. He said the decision not to run was not about problems during the last 18 month but, instead, a
