mood - smack a bitch: ushitora_icons

My little town has become famous the past couple days

It's been a dramatic few days in my town. Have you seen the news story about the school board that was caught on a hot mic, complaining about the parents? Well, that's my hometown. I personally know two of the board members who resigned. Oakley isn't that large - roughly 40k people - and the school board oversees seven elementary schools and two middle schools (the high school my kids went to is technically part of the neighboring town's school district in spite of being in Oakley; don't ask, it's a long story). And this drama has been consuming our community.

First of all, I don't condone what the school board said. However, it's not nearly as black and white as it seems. Collapse )

Sorry. I needed to vent.
