  4. I hope the BOE will winnow their ridiculous list of 13 (or something like that) "strategic goals" to a manageable and realistic 3-5 that are quantifiable.

    Or read "Strategic Planning for Dummies" - lots of goals means NOTHING gets achieved.

  5. The Board of Education needs diversification. It's pretty much everyone on board with the same agenda, one which has lots of social justice type goals (making district budgeting unequal under the guise of equity) and little to show for them. Not one commissioner is results- oriented. When do they ever ask to show what Garcia has accomplished with his grand plans? The first Balanced Scorecard went up in smoke as unlawful and was widely regarded as a pathetic waste of time.


    As far as I can tell Garcia has been one of the least effective and most destructive Superintendents in years. He has used the state budget problems as a smokescreen for his redistribution of wealth. But that plays in San Francisco, political insane asylum that it is.

    So there's little to be done with the current regime intact, except for leaving the public school system or ignoring those fools.
