Dave Tate, Esq. comments. You might ask why I have forwarded this article. No, I’m not directly interested in Toronto school board matters. But the article, and the evaluation of the board, point to issues that are relevant to a lot of boards which have significant problems and issues. So, its a good discussion to consider in light of your board. And, isn’t that a huge school system, 600 schools and 232,000 students.
