On October 6, 2011, community members, parents, and activists gathered at the school board for a hastily called meeting where the board was to vote on a resolution giving them the option to spend up to $100,000 to recruit Ray & Associates Inc.--a corporate search firm with ties to the Eli Broad Foundation--for the purposes of finding another school superintendent. The Community Education Task Force was out in force with Mary Adams, Howard Eagle, and Wallace Smith opening the meeting with critical thoughts about the calling of the meeting and the direction--hastily chosen--by the board to find a new superintendent. Check out the video to see what happens!
