As many know, I have shied away from reporting rumors.
However, when they portend a potentially entertaining showdown to be broadcast live, well the truth will be borne out in less than five hours for all to view and judge.
From what I have been able to garner, the minority members of the school committee are engaging in the same kind of stonewalling that we have seen for the last year and a half in the U.S. Congress.
The reports I have are that the Fab Four minus one have failed to respond to the chair’s inquiries regarding their preferences for subcommittee assignments. As a result the chair was compelled to make assignments on her own initiative.
The result has been devolution into petty points of parliamentary procedure.
This coupled with recent inflammatory remarks relative to the late filing of documents relating to the certification of the newly-named principal of the Southbridge Middle/High School could make for an interesting meeting.
As I caution, however, this is rumor. I am not making any claim to insider knowledge of fact or any prediction of events. But it is a delicious, albeit regrettable, prospect.
