PUSD, Armageddon and Trust
Original post made by Start Afresh, Country Fair, on Jun 13, 2011
Superintendent Ahmadi has been advised this past year on several occasions that she has inherited a "Trust Deficit" brought on by prior superintendents. The advice was coupled with recommendations to restore that trust through sound educational, managerial and fiscal excellence and new best practices in K-12 education.
This year's budget process, together with the Measure E campaign, was an exercise in Armageddon fear mongering as described here (Web Link).
Rather than comb through voter records to determine which supporters did not vote and strategize how to run a better GOTV marketing/political campaign, PUSD would better serve the community by doing what is right for the students.
Restoring trust with effective educational leadership will serve PUSD and the community well.
