A+ Schools Survey on School Board Governance

A+ Schools is conducting a survey about school board governance at

Access the survey by visiting this link: http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/?p=WEB228KG6CLXLV.

The first set of questions is somewhat confusing- choices as to a list of actions/ behavior are "unacceptable, discouraged, acceptable, encouraged" and it is not clear for example if the person responding is intendended to indicate whether the school board finds certain behavior (such as giving priority to the needs of the board member's own district) acceptable, or whether the person responding finds the behavior acceptable; and, it is not clear what to do if the official position of the board is that a listed action or behavior is "encouraged" but in practice the action or behavior does not take place.

But A+ is to be commended for raising these issues and seeking community input.

I think it is great that A+ is offering this survey opportunity. I was a bit confused by the first section, too and hope I responded appropriately.

A+ has always been out of touch with reality. These people are representative of the pinhead mentality that pervades academia. They ought to spend some time in a comprehensive high school before opening their mouths.
