Regarding the school budget and Mort Sherman

Share:

Disclosure- I am the current volunteer treasurer for John Chapman, and I volunteered for Justin Wilson's prior campaign. I donated money to both of them, and to Sean Holihan and Paul Smedberg, over the past few years. I know all of the candidates and previously sued Arthur Peabody for regarding school board activities.My question is this: It is clear to all who are paying attention that there is a great deal of dissatisfaction of Mort Sherman's as superindent of ACPS. There are ongoing questions about his past activities in other school districts, as well as his current management - or lack thereof - of ACPS. As a city council member, how will you hold the school board more accountable to both council and the citizenry via allocation of the budget or some other means?

Dr. Sherman and the school budget

Our school system should be regarded highly and supported fully.  When our top officials have no control over the budget and are not aware of misappropriations, there is a problem.  We need our students to do well, we need them to go forward and they need the tools to do so.  We need a better management team in place, one that takes full responsibility for anything that happens in the system.
