BESE voted on the agenda items I tried to inform you about ahead of time yesterday. Namely the large cash allotment from LDOE funds to be used to fight for the right of non-public voucher schools to discriminate based on race by fighting to overturn Brumfield V Dodd and the approval of the MFP taskforces recommendations. I have not seen the new formula and I did not get notification about these issues ahead of time. From folks I’ve talked to, that follow these issues closely, many of them had no ideas these subjects were going to voted on Tuesday.
Please provide feedback on when you first found out about these items. My suspicion is they were not available ahead of time to prevent parents and citizens from weighing in.
If anyone has a copy of the new proposed formula please provide a link. I’m not sure how the public could actually even weigh in if nothing has been produced tor published to formalize the recommendations. I would like to see what the formula looks like or if it is largely the same as the one that was rejected multiple times last year and even found to be unconstitutional in our courts.
