I simply do not understand why Pittsburgh residents have no say or power while watching this ridiculous waste of money, time & resources is ignored. PPS deflects instead of admitting shortcomings.
Most cities would be so angry and try and hold the board and superintendent accountable.
I try and explain the situation to my family. Most are employed in education and all out of state. When I explain what is going on here; I get the following responses. "You're kidding right?" , " That does not make sense", "You must have misunderstood", followed by my favorite: "No teacher would have signed that contract.
We have zero open forums that allow discussion. This needs to change, and it is ridiculous that this is the status quo.
I want to know why and if anything can be done about it.
Why don't we even have easy access to our school board members? They don't publish their PPS emails on PPS site.
