The DMN today has a story saying that three longtime anti-Miles trustees — Bernadette Nutall, Joyce Foreman, and Lew Blackburn — want a board meeting to discuss the superintendent’s authority. In a blog post yesterday evening, I pointed out that said meeting is unlikely to happen until the board reviews its own lines of authority. Why? Because when Blackburn says in the DMN story that he will openly violate board policy whenever he wants, the root of the problem is exposed. Also because in the Dade matter, Nutall clearly was in the wrong in trying to attend a school staff meeting over Miles’ objections, and Miles was 100 percent right in having her removed when she didn’t comply. For background on school board policy that states this, see my post from Monday.
