Board Agenda for 10/9/07 Meeting

Click here for the GCS BOE agenda for next Tuesday’s October 9 meeting.

Of interest is an update from the GCS Diversity Office; click here to read that memo. Lots of interesting diversity training going on at several of our schools.

E.C. 🙂

  1. Hey EC: I was reading your comments about (1) the drooping SAT scores and (2) the reduction in classroom instruction in music and art. Check out the note I left on Doug Clark’s blog about the interplay between the SAT and strong art and music programs in elementary schools. http://blog.news-record.com/staff/offtherecord/archives/2007/10/ Seems like the program cuts made by the schools are likely to make the SAT problem worse!im_going_to_dis.shtml#comments

  2. If you looked at Dr. Grier’s “Q&A” in yesterday’s N&R, there was not a word about the lousy SAT scores nor the cuts in arts/music, yet he supports “educating the whole child.” It’s sad.
