23. The follow up video is the clincher. It is nothing short of disgraceful that the board

did nothing for months after her speech. BTW these videos are two and a half years old now but that Superintendent is still leading those schools, I just checked. They did institute a turn around, which I will link an article about below. I will say what she is describing is worse than anything I have seen or heard of in my district, my district has some schools which have been determined to be among the worst in the state. We have systematic segregation in my district which has gone on for years and was made worse by permitting open enrollment allowing those with some means in the poor school to flee making it poorer. This is why, unless we fix k 12 in this country in terms of permitting schools such as these to exist, free college will be a wealth transfer program from the poor to the middle and upper classes. Honestly this school should have been either disbanded or the lines totally redrawn to change the mix of students in that school. Failing that, stable leadership should have been provided and immediately.
